JCFC Historical Events
Jamestown Christian Fellowship Church was established in 1995 as a multi-ethnic group of believers called to share the good news of Jesus Christ from the Birthplace of America. A significant part of our assignment is to bring restoration and reconciliation between the first people groups that inhabited these lands. We believe God has a plan for the United States of America and partner with that plan through prayer and gatherings focused on building bridges between people groups. Listed below is just a handful of historic events that JCFC and Pastor Wade have spearheaded or played a significant role in. For more in depth information on the history and mission over the years go to our Arise America site.

Rabbi Eric Carlson explained the symbolism of the Jewish Huppah and offered a Rabbinic Prayer. You can watch this full event on our YouTube channel beginning at the 46:43 time mark.
Honor Service & Thanksgiving Meal
This was a day to honor two historic tribes and their leaders, the Pokanoket of Plymouth, Massachusetts and the Rappahanock of Virginia along with our Jewish friends from Congregation Zion's Sake. We honored the indigenous leaders as the first nations and peoples of this land. Together we worshipped the Lord and fellowshipped together with a Thanksgiving meal further establishing lifelong friendships in the Lord.
Isaiah 61 Proclamation
Isaiah 61 had been on our hearts for months as a proclamation over our nation. We printed out the prayer and read it over the historic triangle region and our nation. Friends of the ministry read it aloud at various landmarks in our nation's capitol. We all read it as a prayer, believing for God to move, shake and shift the atmosphere. A bald eagle flew over the U. S. Capitol Building within about 30 seconds of the reading of this proclamation. In the Bible, eagle's wings represent God's care over the nation of Israel in Deuteronomy 32 and Exodus 19. We like to think this eagle flew by as a prophetic signal of the desire of God for our nation.
