Pastor Videll began holding Bible Studies in his home and later served as Pastor of Jerusalem Baptist Church in Olustee, Florida.
In January, of 2000, Pastor Videll was led to found Faith Bible Church in Sanderson, Florida, where he continues to serve as the senior Pastor. Since its origin the Faith Bible Church family has experienced the favor of God in numerous areas such as:
- Purchasing 25 acres of property,
- Purchasing the Sanderson Senior Citizens Building,
- Establishing an elderly lunch program,

- the development of numerous ministries within the Church.
The most precious reward has been the changed lives and spiritual growth that God has allowed through the preaching and teaching of His word by Pastor Videll. As Pastor Videll would say, “the ultimate goal of preaching, teaching, praying and fasting is obedience to the Word of God. We don’t do ministry to preach and teach how to get more stuff. More than anything what we need is to get more obedience to the Word of God in our lives!”
