Vineyard Institute trains a leader leader to lead, to know the Bible, to engage Kingdom theology, and to deepen one's spiritual life.

If you believe you are being called forward as a disciple, pastor, church-planter, missionary, or ministry leader – then Vineyard Institute is designed for you.

Vineyard Institute (VI) is a global Vineyard theological and biblical education initiative, coordinated by a team of leaders from 4 continents. VI provides practical, accessible biblical training for leaders of all levels in churches worldwide. 

Studies occur both online and via cohorts on location, and the curriculum combines online learning with local mentoring and student-to-student interaction. The flexibility of the program can be adapted to a variety of ministry contexts. Churches can use individual modules for training large numbers of people, while more advanced leaders can choose from a number of diploma programs.

Equipping through education.

Vineyard Institute was created to equip the people of God to pursue the call to go out into the world as workers of the harvest.

Since 2013, we have partnered with over 400 Vineyard pastors and churches around the world to help them find, equip, and deploy leaders from their churches to go out into the harvest field and spread The Good News.

Vineyard Institute – real world education.

VI’s global training program includes high quality theological education, integrated with spiritual transformation and hands-on ministry training so that God’s people are prepared to do Kingdom work at any level in the church and in the world.

Students typically hold full-time jobs while they journey through this program serving and building learning communities in their local church and online. VI instructors are the best practitioners and educators from churches and seminaries around the world who provide an undergraduate equivalent. But it’s the local pastor who provides real world hands on training right in the student’s community.
