"We're creating a space where New Yorkers can be formed in the image of Christ for the sake of others."
The Vineyard is a movement of 550+ congregations in the U.S. and 2400+ churches around the globe birthed 40 years ago with a dream to follow Jesus, embrace his kingdom, and reproduce healthy local churches that engage our communities with hope and healing.
We combine a welcoming of the Holy Spirit with the authority of the Bible, outward action with inward spiritual formation all toward multiplying disciples of Jesus and churches that will do it again and again.
We embrace a variety of diverse and creative methods of reproducing healthy churches so that we can join with what God is doing in every town and with all kinds of people. We are all about equipping and supporting the women and men who are called to lead these churches.
Our goal is to encourage the healthy multiplication of disciples, leaders, and churches throughout America.
The only “right way” to plant a Vineyard church is to be aligning our approach with what God is doing in each particular location. We support and encourage diverse and creative expressions of church planting.

We honestly believe that the power and presence of God is currently available to anyone who would put their confidence in the resurrected Christ, and that this is the best possible life available on our planet. Multiplying healthy Vineyard churches that live out this reality is what we’re all about.
To do that, we’ve developed an extensive discernment process to help potential church planters discover their specific gifts and abilities and to help them discern if the Vineyard community of churches might be a good fit for them.
Through the process of church planting or sending out a church plant, our community will come alongside you to discern, help train you for success, and coach you through each step along the way.
