About Us

JC's Project is a Christian rock band that was born out a small worship team at the now former Open Door Community Church of Stafford, VA. The name was given as a testimony that we are all Jesus Christ's work in progress as the Scriptures are written in Philippians 1:6:

"Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ."


Band members include, Rev. Tom Neal - guitar and vocals, Jeremy Neal - bass guitar, John Matthews - drums, and Jim Ellsmore - lead guitar

This group is dedicated to serving the Lord using the gifts He gave each of us in music. We're not perfect, but we play with all our heart and a great love for Jesus!
