Get to know the staff at VBFN.

  • Hugh King

    Pastor Hugh, a native of Western Pennsylvania, came to Vero Beach over 2 decades ago.  In that time, he has lead VBFN through tremendous growth and change, although he would be quick to point out that he is just a steward of God's church and it is God who promised, "I will build my church."  Through his innovative leadership and desire to follow God no matter what, VBFN is helping more families than ever before.  Which, in turn (according to Pastor Hugh), just means that God is blessing us so we can help even more people.

  • Jeremy Watson

    Pastor Jeremy serves as Student Life Pastor and is constantly coming up with innovative ways to lead students to a life changing relationship with Jesus.  "People - but especially students - will live up to OR down to the expectations you set for them," he says.  Pastor Jeremy has a gift for thinking outside the box and has had a big part in planning and implementing many of our recent events:  SonFest, VeggieTales Live!, Flea Market, Silent Auction, Pie Auction, and Family Night at the Jungle Club.

  • Stephanie Watson

    Stephanie graduated college with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and taught in the public school systems for a few years.  But she will tell you that there always was a nagging feeling in the back of her mind that God had something more, something different.  And in 2011, God called her to move into elementary education within the church.  Since she become our Kids Life and New Life Director, we have reached a whole new level in our outreach.  She has founded Grade Aid Tutoring (a low cost tutoring program), a Wednesday night homework center, and newly founded Vero Beach Academy.

  • Bethany Silvas

    During college, Bethany traveled on weekends with a PR group leading music at churches all throughout the Southeast United States.  And now, she has found her way back home - where she grew up - to lead us each Sunday morning.  The most impressive thing about Bethany is not how great she sings (she does!) but the effort and prayer she puts in throughout the week in preparation for Sunday morning.  Nothing is left to chance and nothing is insignificant.  Through her commitment to leading and praying, we are a richer church.
