Dave Velloney Executive Pastor

Dave and Felitz Velloney ministered in a variety of teaching and leadership roles at River Oak Church from June 2008 until February 2013, when the church called Dave to join the pastoral staff. Dave was born and raised in Connecticut. Felitz was born in Zurich, Switzerland, but grew up in Rochester, New York. They were married in 1991. Dave is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and the Yale Law School and also earned a Master of Laws degree from the Army Judge Advocate General’s School. Prior to joining the pastoral staff at River Oak, Dave spent five years as a professor  at the Regent University School of Law. Dave also served for twenty years on active duty in the United States Army. Dave and Felitz believe that God has called them to intentionally teach, train, and mentor believers in how to live out their lives as devoted disciples of Christ, and to work closely with families, encouraging couples in their marriage commitment and equipping mothers and fathers in their desire to leave a godly legacy. They have three daughters, Michaela, Hannah, and Rebekah. They are all avid soccer, skiing, and Red Sox fans.
