Pastor Matt Chandler’s The Village Church in Texas Reaches Settlement in Sexual Abuse Lawsuit

The Village Church (TVC), the Dallas-area megachurch led by Matt Chandler, has settled a lawsuit brought by a woman over how it handled her report of sexual assault by a former TVC pastor.

TVC announced the settlement in a statement, claiming the church “committed no wrong.”

The victim’s family, however, issued a statement, calling TVC’s statement “not fully truthful, transparent, or caring for the traumatized.”

The woman, who attended TVC as a child, has claimed that a former associate children’s minister at the church sexually assaulted her at a church camp when she was 11.

In the civil suit, she alleged the family told church staffers in May 2018 that the former minister sexually assaulted her in 2012. The church previously indicated that the minister worked at the church until June 2018.
