Living out the gospel life: Supporting each individual as they identify their strengths and turn their faith in to action through serving others.

The Branches at Christ Church is our group home for adults with disabilities and takes its name from John 15:5-8, as it truly represents the many hands, led my God, to bring this vision to reality. The group home began with Pastor John Speight’s vision and was brought to reality by the hard work of our Inclusive Ministry and the support of the Foundation for the Future of Christ Church and more than 50 volunteers, community members, and local organizations. Our group home is supported by our Inclusive Ministry and run by the management company, PAMCO Care. PAMCO Care is dedicated to help our residents lead independent, dignified lifestyles in the safety and comfort of a home environment, while providing the best care possible. 

With the opening of THE BRANCHES, we are making history as the only church of our denomination in Virginia with a group home as a part of its ministry, and the only church of any denomination with a full-time group home in Northern Virginia. For more information please contact Brooke Varma at .
