The real success does not depend upon the position you hold but upon how you carry yourself in that position.”   T Roosevelt

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  Albert Einstein

Our leadership team encourages you to forsake the sinful, debilitating things in your life and learn to fill yourself with the good things of God, through the Holy Spirit. We know from experience that His path is how we experience different results.

Lori and I are so appreciative of the privilege to serve our Savior with the family of our Lord at Mountain View Chapel. From the inception and formation of our church plant, it has been a work of faith. The simplicity of our approach is purposeful as we striving to model the New Testament example. We are striving to be a family, body, or flock first as opposed to the business model of church. We believe the the living organism of the church is organic in nature. Healthy things grow, develop, and reproduce. We use terms like “24/7″, “Love God, Love Others”, and “Living Life Together” to name a few. We are learning to be the church. We are learning to proclaim the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior as a lifestyle witness. We also believe that this is a life pursuit. Faith, grace, and obedience are cornerstones of a redeemed and transformed life. Our hearts desire is to see the church at Mountain View Chapel become a stronger disciple making family. We want to fulfill our Lord’s instructions to “make disciples in all nations”. This begins as a personal commitment that is expressed in the community then becomes global.

If you are considering the Biblical claims of Jesus Christ or you are not connected with a group of Christ followers then please join us. Check us out and see what you think. We are not considered a “mainstream” church experience. We are striving to keep the focus on Jesus as we study the Bible. We are a flock that is learning to listen to and follow the voice of our Shepherd, Yeshua.

We are trying to keep it simple, straight forward, and relevant.

Let us know if we can help in your pursuit of faith in God.

Timothy and Lori Duggins

The Duggins family has had a dream for a number of years. We have been praying together as the dream is much bigger than what we can accomplish on our own as a family. We must have God’s help as well as the assistance of others. CLICK HERE to read the vision.

Servant/Leadership Pursuit

“When the deliverers come- they will be men of God and men of courage. They will have God on their side because they are careful to stay on God’s side. They will be coworkers with Christ and instruments in the hands of the Holy Spirit.”

by A.W. Tozer


Church Leadership Model: 

The Bible is the guide for pursuing the type of church (family/fellowship) that Mountain View Chapel is and should become. The New Testament mentions several illustrations that we can naturally observe in order to teach us characteristics of the Church. The three examples are the family, the flock, and the body. We can examine aspects of each illustration and learn how a local church family/body/fellowship should function. The focus of each example seems to be about relationships within the group and the relationship of the whole group to the leader. In each illustration there is a leadership figure such as the father, the shepherd, or the head. These leaders are normally not elected figures from within the group. Consequently the leadership model of MVC will not be approached from a democratic perspective. Servant leaders will be pursued based on spiritual evidence of maturity not by popular vote.

Leadership Plan:

  • Lead Pastor/Elder/Shepherd
  • Elders/Overseers/Deacons
  • Leadership Team
  • Servant Leaders
  • Serving Church Family

Discipleship is the process of building the church of Jesus Christ, both locally and in all portions of the earth. As people of all ages embrace Jesus as Lord and Savior, a process of growth will begin to take place within the life of the individual. This growth process takes place in various ways and at different rates yet there will eventually be a change that begins to be evident in the life of someone that places faith in the redeeming work of Jesus the Messiah. As this maturity becomes visible in the person’s life, it will be evident to those in leadership roles as well as those in the church family.

This maturing process also reveals the gifts that God has given to each person. As people serve, their gifts become evident to the people who know them. The plan is to involve the families and individuals in the service of our Lord Jesus. As individuals become more spiritually mature through service, these individuals will be pursued for involvement at various levels of leadership. This process of discipleship should create a constant process of growth and development that enlarges the ability of the church to meet the needs of the group (family, flock, or body).

The leadership team, the elders, and the lead pastor are charged with overseeing the spiritual health and well being of the church. The church as a family, a flock, or a body is a group that should naturally create participation. The church of Mountain View Chapel is a participation group not a spectator group. The priority is to include everyone in active, passionate worship and service to our Lord. The purpose of the group is to glorify God by loving Him and loving others as stated in Matthew 22.

We will regularly discuss the common use of terms like “church member” or “church attendance” as terms that do not fit the Mountain View Chapel approach. The church family should be a commitment of participation not observation. Far too often the church experience is seen as a spectator experience. The New Testament model is one of involvement. Anyone who has professed faith in Christ as Lord should be serving in the family of the church. The church (as a family, flock, or body) is designed to be an active, all-involved unit for God. We will fervently work to use the word church within the proper Biblical context. It is a supernaturally called-out assembly or group of people, not a building or a property with a structure. The process is one of making disciples. We are to assist people as they mature in Christ and direct them toward a more fulfilling life of service for our Lord. Each part of the body is important and has a function. Every sheep within the flock has value and needs care. Every single member of the family has a personality and a role. Regardless of the model or example, each person should be functioning or participating. As each person invests time and energy for God and for others, the body grows, improves, and stays healthy.
