Senior Pastor: Brock Mawdesley
Brock is the new pastor at VCBC, having accepted the call to minister in NH in September 2019. He accepted Jesus as His Savior as a child and was raised in a Christian environment while growing up in Michigan. He submitted to the Lord’s call to full time vocational ministry in his late 20’s, and attended seminary at Bob Jones Seminary in 1999. He graduated in 2006 with a M.A. in pastoral studies and a MDiv degree. He and his wife served in a variety of capacities at Cornerstone Baptist Church near Greenville, SC under the leadership and mentorship of Dr. Gary Reimers (who was also one of his seminary professors) until 2008, when he followed God’s call to Upper Cross Roads Baptist Church near Baltimore, MD as an assistant pastor. Brock’s leadership included youth pastor, children’s ministry director, website coordinator, and a variety of other responsibilities. After 11 years of blessed, fruitful ministry at UCRBC, the Mawdesley’s followed the Lord’s calling to be a senior pastor at Village Chapel Baptist Church in Weare, New Hampshire.
Leslie Mawdesley grew up in Westminster, Maryland and accepted Christ as her Savior by her mother’s bedside when she was 5 years old. She committed herself to full-time ministry after her youth group went on a missions trip to Mexico. She studied Spanish at Bob Jones University with a burden to serve the Lord on the foreign mission field. The Lord eventually led her to graduate school at BJU, where she obtained a master’s degree in counseling. Brock and Leslie were married in June 2003 and have been blessed with four boys: Arden, Luke, Kendall and Hudson.
