Vineyard USA

Extending the Kingdom of God through church planting and missional living.


Debby, together with her husband John, lead Vineyard Churches UK & Ireland and are senior pastors of Trent Vineyard church in Nottingham UK, which they started 22 years ago.

Debby lived in Chile until she was 14, with earthquakes and military coups most days! Upon returning to England, Debby trained as a dancer and artist and married John. She was part of St Andrew’s Chorleywood where she first encountered John Wimber and later trained under him at the Anaheim Vineyard.

John and Debby helped start the first Vineyard in Europe and have been serving together in pastoral ministry for more than 30 years. She has two sons, two fabulous daughters-in-law and one beautiful grandson.


Mike is the founder and Director of Soul Survivor, an organization based in Watford, England that seeks to reach, encourage, and equip young people to live their whole lives for Jesus.

Soul Survivor run four events each summer which all-together attract around 30,000 young people, the values of which are engaging with God through worship, learning from the Bible and ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit. Mike spends much of his time traveling and speaking at events abroad including countries that have Soul Survivor bases such as Australia, America, South Africa and New Zealand.

He is also Pastor of the Soul Survivor Watford church, which was planted in the early 1990s from St. Andrew’s Chorleywood to reach the young people of Watford.

Mike has a passion for social justice and was one of the driving forces behind the set up of SOULINTHECITY London in 2004, SOULINTHECITY Durban in 2009, Soul Action (a joint initiative between Soul Survivor and Tearfund to help young people engage in issues around justice) and HOPE (an initiative to encourage UK churches to serve their communities with the love of Jesus).
