Our Pastors & Staff
With the retirement of Senior Pastor Dr. Mark D. Cain, this past March, the Village Bible Church Elders appointed a Search Committee to find God’s man to continue the VBC effort of sharing God’s truth. By the grace of God, Dr. Jason Lancaster has been called to be the Senior Pastor of VBC, effective September 1, 2018, and he has accepted the call. Dr. Terry Carter is the interim teaching pastor until Dr. Lancaster's arrival. VBC is truly blessed to have had two wonderful senior pastors during the church's 35 year existence and now a wonderful interim pastor and then its new senior pastor. To God be the glory.
