One In Christ: Men & Women Together In Ministry

Focusing on women in leadership, and on the relationship of men and women working together in ministry, this booklet explains the Vineyard's approach to celebrating the call of women as leaders in the Body of Christ.

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



Women are serving in growing numbers as leaders in Vineyard churches. In some cases, women serve as the sole senior pastor of a church. In others, husbands and wives are teaming together to share the role of senior pastor. Women also serve as staff pastors, ministry leaders, volunteers, elders, small group leaders, and church board members.

Women serve trans-locally as area and regional leaders who care for groups of pastors within our movement and as members of the Executive Team that makes up our National Board. There are no areas of ministry or levels of leadership closed to women in the Vineyard. In this booklet, we explore the Vineyard’s commitment to gift-based leadership, how we’ve arrived at this commitment, and what it means for Vineyard men and women as we serve together in the church.
