Vineyard USA

The Vineyard is a church planting movement that consists of a network of approximately 1500 churches around the world. These churches share similar values and priorities concerning our relationship with God and the calling through which he has commissioned us.  

The Vineyard originated in Southern California in the early 1980s as a small group of churches under the leadership of John Wimber. John’s influence profoundly shaped the theology and practice of Vineyard churches from their earliest days until his death in November, 1997.

Twenty-five years later, the Vineyard has grown to include a mercy outreach organization, a publishing house, and an influential music production company. Through the Vineyard movement, many churches have been equipped to continue Jesus' ministry of proclaiming the kingdom, healing the sick, casting out demons and training disciples.

The Vineyard provides oversight for its churches and pastors through Area Pastoral Coordinators (APC), Regional Overseers and the National Director and Board. While each local church is autonomous, the APCs are there to provide care, communication, and connection with needed resources, training and accountability.
