Welcome to VR Church! Everyone is welcome to experience a spiritual community in virtual reality. Everyone is invited! It doesn’t matter if you believe in God or not.


Service Time: 2pm (EST)

  • 2:00pm - 2:30pm (EST): Church Service
  • 2:30pm - 3:00pm (EST): Discussion

What's Virtual Reality Church like?

The first 30 minutes are somewhat formal with worship music, prayer, and a sermon. The rest of the time is very informal with discussion and hanging out.

At the beginning, a VR pastor will welcome everyone. Then we listen to worship music for a few minutes. During this time, you can sing, pray, meditate, or simply enjoy listening to the worship music.

After the worship music, we share a few announcements. Then a VR pastor will deliver a short interactive sermon. Sermons are designed to encourage your spiritual life.

At the end of the sermon, we encourage attendees to ask questions, make new friends, or simply hang out.

Who can attend?

Everyone is invited! It doesn’t matter if you believe in God or not.


Who are the pastors?

Bismik is a youth pastor from Germany, a trained historian and philosopher (both a masters degree), a doctoral candidate and a metal band singer. At the age of 17, he experienced Jesus' saving power, which since then has become the anchor and goal of his life. His favorite VR game is Iron Wolf, because of his favorite movie "U96". His favourite beer is the good old franconian "Huppendorfer".

DJ Soto is a pastor, apostle, and film-maker from the United States. He has a passion for movies, gaming, technology, and virtual worlds. He also has a passion to think of new ways to spread the message of God's love for the world. Feel free to email your prayer needs to Pastor DJ at djsoto@vrchurch.org.
