Brief info

Pastor James D. Swindle & his lovely wife Kelly have been pastoring since 1985. They have pastored the Velvet Ridge Church of God since 1995. They credit their ministry at Velvet Ridge with the fact they have been involved with people.
They have learned and preached that they are not a church of one pastor and one congregation; they are a congregation of ministers, and as a church, they will minister.
