A Free Gift from God
We are pursuing a deeper relationship with our Creator through the power of the Holy Spirit. We only can do this because of the righteousness we’ve been given from the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross.
Salvation is a free gift that we can’t ever get by our own efforts. Isn’t that good news!
Who We Are
We are a Christian Church. The Bible tells us that Church is not a building or a religion – it’s people. The people of God; His sons and daughters. The Body of Christ.
We are on a journey of discovering more about our identity, who we are, in Christ. We are learning and growing in the ability to access all that He has provided us through the cross and His Word.
And we LOVE the Presence of God!
The Kingdom of God Can Flourish
Our goal is to create an environment where the Kingdom of God can flourish. We desire that for every aspect of our services, in every age group and every event.
To accomplish this goal, we developed a vision team that is built upon relationship. They meet regularly to bounce ideas off each other and dream together about what the Church could be. They strategize on how to prepare the Church to move forward and reach our community with the love of God.
We are also blessed with many leaders who have pastor’s hearts, awesome teaching abilities for adults and children, compassion for the poor, and helpful insight into prayer and prophetic ministry.
Our leaders depend on one another to be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit and conduct every meeting that way. They are servant leaders who understand that the Church belongs to Jesus.
Our Vision Team
Ed and Sandy started attending Vineyard Church when it was a new church plant . . . for their young children. Since that time they have fallen deeply in love with Jesus and are devoted to seeing Him heal and bring freedom to broken lives. Their son and daughter are now adults.
Jim and Marcy have a passion for teaching and encouraging people to find their identities in Christ and go after their dreams. Having met on the foreign missions field, they are happily married, ardent foodies (as well as gourmet chefs) and the parents of 3 amazing children.
John & Becca Farmer
John, our senior leader, and his wife Becca started the Vineyard Church with a small group from Vineyard North Phoenix. John is an Arizona native, musician and organic farmer. Becca is an artist and has a job at the State Capitol. They love the outdoors – especially hiking, camping, kayaking and gardening. They are blessed with a son, daughter-in-law and three amazing grandchildren.
Kyle and Faith are Kingdom activists. Their energy and willingness to “go for” the things of God has resulted in numerous adventures, such as co-founding Unseen Ministries, leading missionary teams to the other side of the globe, instigating numerous treasure hunts in our community and mentoring young adults, just to name a few. They are proud parents of two beautiful daughters.
