Our Elders

Jesus has given elders (or pastors) as gifts to lead, feed and protect the church. These are the men our congregation has recognized as elders.

Miguel Davilla

Lead Pastor |

Miguel Davilla is the lead pastor of Hampton Roads Fellowship. Born and raised in the Bronx, NYC, Miguel's passion is to see the gap bridged between solid theological truth and the urban community. He is a graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, FL and previously served as Executive Director of ReachLife Ministries, a non-profit ministry that serves ministry leaders in the urban context. Before that, he served as a Surface Warfare Officer in the US Navy from 1995-2004. Miguel currently lives in Newport News, VA with his wife Cassie, and daughter Emily, who was born in 2009.
