Because we value every age and stage of development, we have training programs that reach into the life of a Christian at any age, to help them advance in spiritual, leadership, relational, and intellectual development.
While these programs are not intended to replace excellent local church offerings in many of our churches, Vineyard Institute, Heroic Leadership Institute, and Project Timothy provide important forums for the growth of leaders at many ages and stages of development.
In the Vineyard, we are committed to living out the essential practices of EDLD on a daily basis.
All Christians need training in areas of Christlikeness, leadership, and ministry development.
We work with local churches, and their training forums, to support them with broader programs to disciple kingdom leaders.
If you are leading in a Vineyard church and are interested in developing your theological, Biblical, and leadership skills, Vineyard Institute is for you.
John Wimber placed special emphasis on Ephesians 4:12-13, calling us to equip ordinary people to do the work of ministry rather than relying on spiritual “professionals” to do it.
In all our training, we develop practitioners of Jesus’ words rather than simply those who know what the Bible says. Knowing and doing are two different things for the disciple of Christ.
We call all our leaders to a passionate, radical lifestyle of love, obedience, and listening to the Father – choosing Jesus over the idols of our age.
