Our Story

The ministry of The Village Church did not begin as a church alone, but rather was birthed out of a vision of the director of the Lincoln Village Ministries. In the summer of 2006 the church building on Virginia Boulevard was purchased and several churches from the Huntsville/Madison community began to invest time, payer, and financial support for the growth of the church plant.

In the Spring of 2007 Alex Shipman came on board with the vision and agreed to pastor The Lincoln Village community. So in September 2008, an introductory service was held and a weekly Sunday evening Bible study began.

Less than a year later, the Bible study became evening services and on January 17th, 2010, the first Sunday morning service was held and a new chapter in the Lincoln Village story began.

The Village Church has become more than just a building for Sunday morning worship services. It is also the central gathering place for community events as well as a stationary refuge for people who live in the surrounding area.

By the grace of God, it will continue to be a place of hope, “for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:11) by living out our vision to be and make the disciples who are committed to Jesus, Family, Service and Missions, and by fighting for our mission to be a visible expression of Christ by engaging our neighbors through word and deed, relating to our neighbors, spiritual, moral, social and economic conditions and restoring their spirit, dignity and hope.
