Annual Report


Vineyard Church


Revelation 21:3-5
I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”
 

And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!”

Our message is surging with optimism. We are people of hope. Our King is renewing all things! We take seriously our mission to join God in his ongoing work. He is addressing the brokenness in this world, and we're compelled to join him.

God has placed his creative and compassionate force within us. We are recipients of God’s kindness and love — and we embrace our mission to not only receive those gifts, but also to distribute them to those around us. For the Glory of our King and the good of his creation, we are…

3 Unique Venues


Worshiping in multiple venues, allows us to empower new leaders, start new expressions of the Body of Christ, develop a collaborative network of unity and support, and pave the way for future growth.

Each Venue is a distinct local community with its own leadership, story, and cultural aesthetics. We share vision, core values, missional efforts, best practices and many resources through a central governance that provides structure, direction and support. Each venue is encouraged to contextualize and invent, tailoring ministry efforts around their unique congregations and communities.

Finances


We take financial stewardship seriously! Our financial board is comprised of faithful and qualified leaders who carefully and prayerfully govern our church's finances. We're proud of how we allocate our finances, and believe that God is leading us in wisdom. 

We don't tolerate secrets, so we operate with full transparency. If you have any questions about how we spend money or make decisions, we really do want you to ask! Please feel free to call the offices at (865) 268-9668.

Missions


Employing the Disciple Making Movements (DMM) model we’re reaching thousands of people in places like Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Haiti, and here locally. Through prayer, persons of peace (Luke10:5-6) are discovered and coached to not only become followers of Jesus, but to make followers of Jesus in their own communities.

We're celebrating how fruitful this approach has been as we are now making progress in reaching a third unreached people group in Northern Africa. Meanwhile in Haiti, churches continue to multiply, the children at the Freedom House are thriving, and the Abercrombies have launched Access Health Alliance as their ministry reach continues to grow. 

In 2018, through budget allocations and additional gifts we supported our missions efforts with

We encourage you to give generously as the Lord is leading you. The Bible gives us tithing (giving 10% of our income) as a template, and also makes it clear that the Holy Spirit will direct us in how we give. Please prayerfully consider giving to the ministries of Vineyard Church. 

If you haven't already, consider setting up a recurring gift, so that you can most easily give consistently as you intend.

We take Christian community seriously! If Vineyard Church is your home, it's a powerful step to acknowledge that.

We encourage people in our church to commit to engaging fully in our community. We revisit these commitments once a year to keep them fresh in our minds. To see this explained more fully, and to have an opportunity to opt in visit...
