The Gospel With The Poor
A collection of excerpts and Bible studies compiled and adapted by Vineyard Justice Network from John Wimber’s teachings. It includes 9 chapters complete with scriptures references, stories, study prompts and outreach actions.
About the Booklet
John Wimber once said that the purpose of the Vineyard could be summed up with two words: worship and compassion. Wimber also regularly highlighted Jesus’ mission on earth to “release the oppressed.” As Kingdom-minded people formed through intimacy in worship and by Jesus’ compassion for us, we then embark on this same mission to set things right, especially for the captive, poor and marginalized. It’s in our roots.

We Are Vineyard Podcast
It’s Season 2 of We Are Vineyard, and we’re starting off with an exciting 2-part interview! Tim Mackie of BibleProject joins our host, Jay Pathak, to share about his relationship with Jesus as a child, the healing he experienced through the prayers of his church, and the disconnect he felt while attending school at a church. Tim talks about being reintroduced to Jesus through a dorky skateboarding-based church, and how following invitations from a cool leader at SkateChurch sparked his interest in the Bible, which transformed him from a disinterested student to an ignited scholar. Tim also shares about the lifelong friends he found through SkateChurch, meeting his wife through a mutual interest in Greek, and the origin story of BibleProject. This is a two-part episode, so make sure to come back next week for the second half of the story!
Tim is married to Jessica, and together they are raising two little boys, Roman and August, in the wonderful city of Portland, Oregon.
Tim is a creative writer for BibleProject.
He’s been fascinated with Jesus and his Jewish heritage ever since he became a Christian at 20 years old through an urban outreach ministry to skateboarders in Portland called SkateChurch. Tim discovered the wonderful world of biblical studies and languages at Multnomah University and Western Seminary, and he had the privilege of doing a PhD in Hebrew and Jewish Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Tim’s greatest passion is to help people grasp the beautiful and compelling story of the ancient Scriptures and how they lead us to Jesus of Nazareth.
