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 – Summer 2020

Our TVC Men enjoyed a morning of fellowship and exploring God’s creation on Saturday, July 26 at Percy Warner Park. If you were unable to join us, stay tuned for upcoming events and programs, especially our men’s retreat/staytreat coming up in September!

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. 

Our new TVC Men’s Friday Morning Group will meet at Percy Warner Park at 7 am each Friday.
