The Village

We are an every member ministry church that is focused on connecting with people who are not connected with church due to lack of personal connections, misunderstanding of biblical doctrine, or negative experiences.

Our Vision

The uniqueness of The Village is not in our doctrinal views, organizational charts, or personal charisma. Rather, it is in the way that we apply our convictions to the world in which we live. We believe in majoring on the majors, and minoring on the minors. Jesus clearly stated that evangelism and discipleship are the things the church should be majoring on with his last words to his disciples in Matthew 28:18-20, "18 Then Jesus came near and said to them, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” With this statement, Jesus clarified that all Christians are to build their lives around personal evangelism and personal discipleship. We believe that much of the ineffectiveness and even boredom in the modern church comes from moving away from these twin overriding purposes. As a result, we gear everything we do around equipping people to become effective in evangelism and discipleship.

Lead Pastor

Todd Stewart

Todd is married to Jennifer, and they have four children ranging from high school to elementary school ages.  He grew up unchurched, but, after a season of exploration, accepted Christ at age 20 while a student at Kansas State University.  Since that time, Todd has had a passion to help the unchurched understand and embrace the Bible's transforming message of grace.  This passion has led him to seasons of ministry on the K-State campus, on campuses in China, and at The Ohio State University. In January 2015, Todd partnered with his family and a core team of friends to start The Village. Prior to this, Todd served on staff with New Hope Church in Manhattan for 10 years, and then had a short stint working with Ichthus Student Ministries at K-State.  

Todd is particularly interested in history, and is currently a graduate student in the K-State history department. Todd also has a Master's of Divinity degree from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  Todd also loves to run, bike, hike in the mountains, and read.  If you come out to The Village, you will regularly find Todd on the porch enjoying a pint of stout beer, a pipe, and some good conversation.
