We invite you to be praying for each team member, for the JMI staff who will host us and for the pastors and the communities we go to serve. If you’d like to support our team financially, there are a handful of folks who will need some help to cover the cost of this trip. Make a donation HERE or email [email protected] for more info.

Each year, TVC offers several international and domestic mission trip opportunities. These trips will vary in length, cost and focus of work but they will all give you the opportunity to reach out in love and mercy to people in need and to experience our God in new ways as you see Him work in a setting outside of your normal everyday life. Please take time to pray and consider joining us on one of these trips!

Compassion Child Sponsorship

Noah LilianandRosa


The Village Chapel has a long history with Compassion International and their child sponsorship program. Shortly after the church began in 2001, we started sponsoring a young girl in Patzicia, Guatemala. Pastor Jim would give regular updates as we watched her grow and eventually graduate from the program. Along the way, as new children entered the program, Compassion would give TVC the first opportunity to make these sponsorship opportunities available to our congregation.

Today, individual TVCers and families sponsor more than 200 children in four villages in the same region of Guatemala, with the addition of San Antonio Nejapa, Santa Apolonia and Las Victorias to our original location of Patzicia.

At The Village Chapel, we realize the Christian church does not exist merely for itself. We are here first and foremost to glorify God, and then second, to become the arms of Jesus reaching out to a broken and hurting world.

This outreach-minded mission requires two things: words and deeds. The words of the Christian mission proclaim the good news of God’s grace offered in Christ Jesus. The deeds of the Christian mission involve reaching out in love to help the helpless, to bring comfort to the grieving, to bring justice to the oppressed and relief to the poor.

As a church, we live this out by giving away 15 percent of the tithes and offerings we take in to assist worthy organizations in their ongoing work. This means that through your generous financial support of The Village Chapel, you already support dozens of ministries, both local and international. These include a wide range of ministries that focus on the important works of evangelism, justice and mercy.
