In 2014, God gave Pastor Robert Hampshire, a vision to plant a church in Churchville, VA. After much praying, dreaming, and discussing with two men who would later become the Elders of our church, several families began to meet together to prepare to follow Jesus's Great Commission and go start a church. Soon after, Village Church was sent out from Calvary Baptist Church to reach Augusta County and beyond for Christ. In 2020 we welcomed Pastor Todd Yoder and his family to Village as the Senior Pastor.
The foundation for our entire belief system at Village Church is God's Word, the Bible. This is spelled out in our Baptist Faith and Message (2000). Our GROWTH TRACK will help you understand more about our foundational beliefs.
Church is about helping people develop spiritually and live fulfilled, purposeful lives. We describe this process as a journey. It is our mission to make disciples by reaching families with the hope of the Gospel. We will do this by helping them CONNECT to God, GROW together, SERVE others, and then GO lead others to Jesus. Wherever you are, let us help you take your NEXT STEP.
We are in a missional partnership nationally with the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) and regionally with the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia (SBCV) and Liberty Church Network (LCN). Locally, we are in strategic partnership with several other churches, including our mother and sending church, Calvary Baptist Church in Staunton, VA, the POINT Church in Charlottesville, VA, Church United in Staunton, VA, and Crosslink Community Church in Harrisonburg, VA.
