About Us

First and foremost, we are a community of people who aim to love God, each other, and those around us (Mark 12:29-31).  Worship, Community and Justice pretty much sums it up.  Our mission statement says it like this:

“We exist to build a safe community that invites all peoples to worship Jesus as they embrace a kingdom lifestyle that extends God’s justice on the earth.”

For a more detailed description of what we mean by this, see our Core Practices.

Leadership

We believe that everyone has a gift to give the body – a place they can make a difference in the Kingdom of God.  1 Corinthians 12 outlines many of these gifts and Paul takes care to mention that they are given for the good of the whole body.  Leadership is one of the gifts given to encourage, envision and build-up the church.

Here are two attempts to describe our relational and leadership dynamics.

Pastoral Elders

The Pastoral team really enjoys working together, and gets a lot accomplished in the process!  They are responsible for the daily implementation of our vision.  The pastoral elders are led by our Pastoral Executive who is Nathan Rieger and Andy Wood.  You’ll notice our pastoral team is comprised of married couples – however this doesn’t mean that one must be married to be a pastor in the Vineyard.  It’s just our current reality.  Usually one partner takes a more active role in pastoring while the other functions as a lay elder (on the eldership team).
