Mission-Vision-Values Discernment Process

A movement of discerning God's will today for the Village Church of tomorrow.


Exodus 33:15
And he said to him, "If your presence will not go with me, do not bring us up from here."


We are in a season of discerning the next Mission, Vision, and Values of Village Church. Join with the church leadership and help saturate this process with prayer so we can discern God's will today for the Village Church of tomorrow.
