We love the Roanoke Valley and we want to make an impact for the Gospel in the  communities where we live, and around the world. We believe that the church exists to spread the Good News of Jesus and we strive to train believers to reach their neighbors, friends, families, and leave a mark on the world, as they make disciples both, in Roanoke, and around the world.

Our City |
Roanoke is our home. Our desire to saturate it with the Hope of Jesus! We move intentionally in our city to make a difference and reach others with the Gospel.

Our World |
Our world is looking for a reason to hope and we believe that Jesus is the hope they are looking for so we intentionally work in countries around the world with long-term missionaries and pastors to reach people with the good news of Jesus.


We are not interested in programs and buildings, our mission is people.

Build Relationships | Serving Others:
We make every effort to build authentic relationships with each other and with the community in which we live. We believe that genuine relationship is vitally important to sharing the Gospel.

Build Disciples | Sharing Christ:
We equip and empower believers to live victorious Christian lives. We want to help them identify their gifts and passions and use them in the body of Christ in order to advance the Kingdom of God.

Build Churches | Spreading Hope:
We are planting churches all over central Virginia and throughout the world.


In June of 2007, God burdened the hearts of three families to sell their homes, move into Bedford County, and plant Bedrock Community Church. Jonge Tate, Chris Dowd, and Jeremy Minor committed to pray about doing this great work together. In September of 2008, Bedrock Community Church publicly launched in Bedford, Virginia. 4 years later, Bedrock Community Church officially launched a campus in Vinton, VA and hired Bill Coleman and Tim Thorn as pastors. This campus quickly grew into a church of it’s own, Bedrock Church Roanoke. On Easter of 2014, Bedrock Church Roanoke celebrated autonomy as a self-governing church with the goal of being self-sustaining by April of 2016.

God has been using Bedrock Church Roanoke to minister in the community of Vinton, the Roanoke Valley and beyond and we are excited about being His ambassadors for many more years to come.
