The Village Chapel’s Men’s Ministry is growing. Co-chairs Doug Sherwood and Rich Cowell, along with Pastor John and Pastor Ashley, have taken on the task of making the Men’s Ministry a success not only here at The Village Chapel, but also in our Community. A major focus of the Men’s Ministry is to increase awareness throughout Moore County of Human Trafficking.
We are seeking leaders to direct this humble group of men in exploring topics of current interest, as well as studies of new and significant spiritual texts. Many opportunities to share in fellowship, prayer and study are expected throughout the year.
