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.

TVC Men’s Hike

TVC Men – join us for a summer hike at Percy Warner Park on July 18 at 7am. We’ll plan on tackling one of the moderate trails (which will take a couple hours to hike) and we’ll also spend some time gathering for a devotional together. This will be a safe, socially distanced time of fellowship while enjoying God’s creation. Don’t forget to bring your favorite walking stick, sunglasses and plenty of water! RSVP below. 


Adapted Groups

At this time, many of our ongoing groups are adapting their current format to meet online.

Men’s Small Groups

Men of TVC – did you know we have a variety of Men’s Groups that meet throughout the week that you can get plugged into? This is a great way to meet men in different stages of life and study the Word of God as a church community. Each of these groups focuses on a different study with time also spent on prayer and discussion. There are groups that meet at both our Hillsboro Village Campus and our East Nashville Campus as well as in Franklin on various days and times. If you’re looking to grow in your faith and develop deeper relationships, this is the place to start.

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?
