Eli Richmond (Class of 2018)


VCLA helped open my eyes to see more of Jesus. I can confidently say I am a child of God— a beloved son in whom He is well pleased.

These roots I have grown are going to help me stay planted whether a drought, storm, flood, or harvest happens in my life. No matter the season, I know I have Jesus to be right there with me. Not only that, but I have friends ready to remind me of who I am, who He is, and what I am created to do.
