Meet Our Pastors

Ray Bjorkman

Lead Pastor

Ray attended Old Dominion University and earned his degree in Biblical Studies from Rock Bible Institute. He is a founding member of Beach Fellowship, and in 1998, became the Lead Pastor. Along with his daily responsibilities here, our Pastor demonstrates a core Beach Fellowship belief by staying active in service to our city, Virginia Beach. In 2011, he was elected as inaugural Chairman of the BEACH Community Partnership, a collaborative effort of over 50 community organizations formed to combat homelessness in Virginia Beach. He currently serves as Immediate Past Chair as well as a member of the governing board for city homelessness. In 2015, Pastor Ray was appointed by the mayor and city council to be the inaugural chairman of VB HOME NOW, Inc. This new foundation was established to source funds for the neediest in our city.

Pastor Ray lives in Virginia Beach with his beautiful wife, Mary Alice, and together they are the parents of three children: Chris, with wife MaryAnn and their son Caleb; Natalie, with husband Peter and their daughter Evelyn; and Kyle.
