What does the great commission look like in the context of your town? How are you reaching your neighbor? How are you involved with local organizations doing kingdom work in your town? Join us for a conversation with Vineyard Pastors Michael Houle and Dick Ray as they discuss best practices for outreach in your community.
Dick and his wife Maida pastor a thriving Vineyard church in the town of Mechanic Falls Maine which they planted 20 years ago. Their desire is to see communities and generations impacted by the love and grace of God. In his spare time Dick likes to ride his tractor and play “hippie farmer” on his reclaimed farmstead with his grandkids.
Michael is the pastor of the Valley Vineyard Church located in a small town in Northern Wisconsin for the past 11 years. He and his wife, Trisha, and their 2 children, ages 17 and 20, planted the church in 2005. Until going full time with the church a few months ago, Michael had been bi-vocational working as a substitute teacher as well pastoring their church community. He is an active team member of the National Vineyard Small Town Partnership. Michael is also a certified coach with Multiply Vineyard and provides both coaching and consulting for leaders and churches across denominations. He is passionate about Jesus and the Kingdom of God and his family. Michael enjoys reading, various sports, and watching his Green Bay Packers.
