Our Pastoral Search

Village Chapel Baptist Church has enjoyed a heritage of godly pastors. Our church was founded in 2002 by Pastor Andy Dean who led us faithfully for 16 years. In 2019, Pastor Brock Mawdesley was elected as our new pastor and he shepherded our church for over three years until the Lord called him back to his previous ministry. In June 2023, our church once again found itself without a pastor.

But God has been good. Many local men have filled our pulpit during our search, and our search committee has enjoyed an uncommon unity as they have worked together to seek God’s will. In the spring of 2024, the opportunity arose for our church to consider joining another local ministry, Weare Bible Baptist Church (WBBC) in Weare, NH. Their pastor, Pastor Josh Barnes, has filled our pulpit regularly over the last year and has become a great friend of our congregation.

To aid both congregations in evaluating this option, Village Chapel will be joining WBBC in worship at their location for the month of June. We covet your prayers as our two congregations meet together, get to know one another, and seek God’s will in this endeavor.
