Community is a blessing God offers us in the body of Christ.

We welcome you.

Our prayer at the Lord's table is "make us one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world."  The Vine is grounded in that prayer.


Our Vision: Unifying to embody the love of Christ in Spirit-led actions one community at a time.
Our Mission: To discover, equip, connect and send lay and clergy leaders who shape congregations that offer Christ to a hurting world, one neighborhood at a time.
