Our Guest

Brian Brinkert | Pastor at the Duluth Vineyard Church
Brian and his wife Andrea have been involved with Vineyard churches since the late 90’s. In 1998, they helped start a Vineyard Church in Cedar Rapids, IA before moving to Mankato, MN in 2003 to plant Two Rivers Vineyard Church. At the beginning of 2017, they transitioned the church in Mankato to new lead pastors and begin a new season of ministry at the Duluth Vineyard. Brian now oversees our small groups and men’s ministry, and train church planters and ministry leaders with the Residency+ program. Brian’s passion is to help people discover who God has made them and what he has made them for. He especially loves seeing new leaders step into God’s calling for their lives. In their spare time, the Brinkert family loves to camp, hike and play board games. Brian also enjoys playing golf and cheering for the Minnesota Twins.
