Real Life Christian Church is located on the border of Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, VA. They draw families from both cities. The area is made up of military families, and folks from all walks of life. It is also a great area with highly-rated schools. It is a safe place to live and has a good climate year-round experiencing some winter but mostly warmer temperatures. The beach is a big factor for people wanting to live here. Community neighborhoods are highly sought after here, and everyone is friendly. Because of the community’s size, they attract large shows/talent for concerts and other festivals and events.
