Care & Support Resources

At various points in our lives, issues may arise or emotions may surface that require more help than your church staff can provide. To help point you in the right direction, we provide the following resources. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but we believe these trusted organizations, ministries and groups are a great place to start.

With Hope In Mind: A Mental Illness Family Support Group

In January 2016, The Village Chapel launched With Hope In Mind, a faith-based mental illness family support group. Facilitated by our own Bill and Mary Jean Murphy, the group is open to the greater Nashville community, providing a safe place for family members and caregivers to share their experiences.  

When the Murphys met in the 1970s, both were mental health professionals, and while serving on TVC’s Prayer Team they noted that a significant number of individuals and families seeking prayer were dealing with the mental health issues of a loved one. With Hope In Mind is offered in association with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), and the Murphys have undergone extensive training in order to become NAMI community advocates.

It’s our prayer that God uses this resource to lessen the stigma of mental illness and provide support for those regularly impacted by this issue. For more information, email [email protected] or visit 

With Hope In Mind meets on the fourth Sunday of each month from 3-4:30 pm at TVC East.
