Serving Sunland Village East and the East Valley


Pastor Richard Koerselman

Pastor Richard Koerselman -- Welcome to the Website of The Village Chapel, at SVE (Sunland Village East), in Mesa, Arizona. The Chapel is a non-denominational ministry, that exists to serve SVE residents and the surrounding community. For almost 30 years the Chapel has been providing weekly worship services, seasonal Bible studies and daily prayer and support for the ill and for those grieving the loss of loved ones.

My name is Richard Koerselman. I have been an ordained minister for 40 years and have served as pastor of the Chapel for the past 7 years. I grew up in Northwest Iowa, and have served churches in New Jersey, Texas, and right here in Gilbert and Mesa. I have a wife, Faye, and together we have two children and five grandchildren. I am delighted to serve the Chapel and look forward to meeting you. May God bless you with his love and peace.



Dave Hall

David Hall -- Greetings! My name is David Hall and I am The Village Chapel's Executive-Board Moderator. The Executive Board meets once a month to discuss our Chapel's needs, improvements and recommendations, to better serve our congregation and Chapel. My function, as moderator, is to serve the Lord, and the congregation, and to assist the pastor in the leadership of the Chapel ministry.

My wife, Alicia, and I have lived here in SVE for 20 years, after moving from Colorado Springs, Colorado. We both grew up in Phoenix and when I retired from Nabisco Foods, we couldn't wait to get back to Arizona.
