The church has experienced steady growth over the last few years, with plans underway to offer additional services as well as satellite video campuses in nearby communities. 


The Vineyard has an Outreach building that facilitates the church’s Mercy Ministry, reaching over 450 families each month who live in low income or high-rise communities. This facility also serves as a staging area for numerous other servant evangelism events that happen year-round. 


At the core of the Vineyard is a unique balance of spiritual passion and dedicated expressions of service both inside and outside the church walls.  The church does a great job of connecting pre-Christians with Jesus, offering new Christians avenues for discipleship with authentic community, while engaging all Christ followers towards a deeper journey with God.

The church community has passionate worshippers who are hungry for Holy Spirit activity in the services.  The musical worship has a modern sound, and the worship team has some talented musicians and dynamic vocalists in place for God to do some great things in the services.
