Men's Ministry

The Village Chapel's Men's Ministry is based on our recognition of the need for mutual encouragement, accountability and transformation through committed relationships. Through annual retreats, special events and weekly small groups, we nurture spiritual, emotional and physical discipline and trust that the Lord will use these interactions to bring about personal growth, depth and maturity in our individual walks with Christ.

Our newest men's group meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8 pm in the Living Room at TVC Main.

Participants will learn how to be intimate with God, how to lay their troubles down at Jesus' feet, and how to be strong in the Holy Spirit. Questions?
