You can help by helping fellow Vineyard leaders process these transitions. We look forward to being together (in-person and virtually) at the National Conference in October!
Invite your whole church to the National Conference. In-person in Phoenix or live stream.
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.

The world has changed in all sorts of dramatic ways in the last forty years. We know that today there are new and different challenges to reaching people with the good news of the Kingdom of God, as well as more demands on our pastors than there ever were in the past. While life itself involves constant change, the pace of change is now quicker than ever.
Throughout our life together as a movement, we have earnestly responded to God’s call – and our response has borne much fruit. We now need to focus on how we continue to do so for the next forty years. It is time for us to reimagine our approach to our shared mission, embracing the changes necessary for us to thrive as a Kingdom movement in the midst of our changing culture. Please join us in stewarding this sacred trust into the future.
Even in the midst of COVID, together we saw over 5,000 people make first time decisions to follow Jesus and planted 23 new churches through creative means. We are considered a multiracial movement having over 26% non-majority racial make up. We have a unique call to Kingdom theology, ministry of the Holy Spirit, justice, and building healthy leaders.
God is doing great things among us! We believe that this is just the beginning.
