We're excited to announce the new National Team!

For the first time in our history, Vineyard USA has hired a National Team to lead us through this important season of transitions and into the future God is writing for us.

The work of the National Team is to equip, encourage, and further empower local churches in their Kingdom mission. Each member of the team will work everyday to resource Vineyard pastors in their ministries, developing robust, intelligent, integrated systems that will support and strengthen pastors as they pursue their callings in the Kingdom.

About 150,000 people call 500+ Vineyard churches home throughout the United States. We believe this change will enable us to better care for our local church pastors - strengthening relationships, building on our sense of family - resulting in stronger, healthier communities wherever there is a Vineyard church.

The ReOrg process made very clear that we need to be better at supporting pastors locally, especially in this moment when demands on them are becoming greater, whether they are full-time, part-time, or bivocational. This new structure will allow us to become a strongly connected national family of healthy churches – each individual and interdependent, more transparent, and more accountable to each other.

This National Team is a diverse group of servant leaders, who have been called together by God to articulate and steward the culture, processes, practices, and theology of our Movement. 

After a rigorous hiring process and prayerful discernment, the team was unanimously ratified by the Executive Team in September 2021.
