Village Community Church is a non-denominational church located in the heart of Montgomery Village, Maryland. Village was founded in September 2002 by Rev. Donald V. Evans, MDiv. and he continues to pastor the congregation in joyful faithfulness. Village is a church that completely believes and leans on the living word of God as written in the Holy Bible for guidance.
Pastor Don’s philosophy of ministry is a T3 Church: A transformed you leads to a transformed family leads to a transformed world. Pastor Don believes the greatest joy and privilege here on earth is to shepherd a non-believer into the family of God. Through an affirming process of preaching, teaching and leadership development, our mission is to grow a new convert from simply being a new believer to being a mature disciple of Jesus Christ. And then to launch that disciple into missions and watch him or her penetrate the world and make an eternal difference for the kingdom of God.
Such a wonderful ministry given to us by God has a joy that is and becomes contagious. It produces love, connectedness, unity and service. Real ministry puts smiles on the faces of the saints, both young and old. Youth will find church fun. Adults will see the power of God moving on their jobs, within their family and in their community. People on the outside begin to wonder what is going on at the church. They are amazed and drawn to the church because she is a light in the community. Wow! Joys are celebrated and sorrows are consoled. Every member has a peace about himself or herself because members are available for each other on a 24/7 basis in real and practical ways. The congregation has outgrown pride and pettiness and is now at a place where sharing, service and suffering has become its footprint. Their worship is much more than ritual and traditions. It includes the simple purity of an open heart toward God. True praise, true thanksgiving, true worship is offered up to God. Everyone comes to worship full of anticipation about his or her personal encounter with God. It’s High Church because traditions are observed, and it’s Low Church because all are giving way to the Spirit of God in their own way.
As the congregation departs with benediction, we are ready to face today and the week ahead. Adults are impacting their friends and the children are telling their pals about Jesus and about their church. Mature members are replicating themselves by discipling the less mature. And we see the church reproducing herself through her contagious pursuit of the Great Commission and church planting. God offers us such a wonderful ministry and vision for His Church in rural, urban or inner city settings for small, medium or large congregations.
With his loving wife Terri Evans by his side, Pastor Don shepherds the flock with this vision of His Church in heart and mind. Proudly for the last 18 years, Village Community Church has been focusing on people and relationships from the biblical perspective of the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We look to the future with excitement as we find new ways to expand the reach of our ministry.
“ Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
