Village 101

8 a.m., Wednesday, March 8 – 4 p.m., Thursday, March 9

The Village Church - Flower Mound and Highland Village Campuses

How does our mission—to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered worship, gospel-centered community, gospel-centered service and gospel-centered multiplication—play out in the life of our church, from Preschool Ministry to the pulpit? Village 101 is an event that gives pastors, ministers and church leaders an opportunity to spend a few days at The Village, gaining a better understanding of how we function as a staff and church. Participants get a chance to engage with our pastors and staff through ministry presentations and Q&A sessions. Attendees also receive resources such as internal documents, curriculum and more.

Cost: $50

Please note that the lunch sessions are optional; you will have the opportunity to register for lunch sessions when you register for Village 101. If you choose to attend a lunch session, food will be provided. If you do not, you will be on your own for lunch. A list of local restaurants will be included in your Village 101 Handbook, which you will receive at check-in.
