ROLE BASED MEET-UPS

One of the new additions for this year will be Role Based Meetups! These meetups throughout the week will provide opportunities to connect with other people who work in similar ministry areas. We will have meetups for various types of local pastors including specialties like Executive Pastors, Campus Pastors, and Associate Pastors.

Additionally, there will be meet ups for various staff and volunteer roles such as justice and outreach, missions, chaplains, kids and youth workers, worship, communications, and spiritual directors and coaches (and more!). We even will have opportunities for board members and trustees of churches to connect, as well as retired pastors! Make sure to sign up in registration to learn more about these various opportunities for each area of ministry that you work in (paid or volunteer!)

How you grow up often defines much of who you are. The kind of family you grow up in, the kind of culture you grow up in, even the kind of friend group you grow up in. All of these can affect how you live, think, act, and see the world. So what does it mean to “Grow Up Vineyard?” We think it means you have a sacred heritage and a holy destiny. It means you carry with you the faith of generations that have brought you to this place, and that your unique gifts, personality, and faith will define the future. It means that you are a vital part of something bigger than yourself and that because of you, others will find and know the life-changing relationship that Jesus offers. Are you ready to discover more of who you are in Jesus? Are you ready to embrace more of who God is calling you to be?


As we hang out, there will be two goals:

  • Discover more about who you are in God and how God wants to use you
  • Have tons of fun and make lasting, meaningful friendships with people just like you

 

You don’t want to miss…

  • Four amazing meetings with awesome worship, powerful speakers, and time to pray for each other. These meetings will run concurrent with the adult sessions.
  • The return of color wars: who will win the trophy this year?
  • An “escape day” on Wednesday (awesome location of amazing fun TBD, but most likely a full day at an adventure park with roller coasters and a water park)
  • Hang out times to make friends, play games, and just chill
  • Sickest merch drop yet

 

Sign up to volunteer with Vineyard Kids!

  • Part of our vision for teens who are “Growing up Vineyard” is that we get to pass it on to the next generation! Would you consider taking 3 hours to volunteer with Vineyard Kids? The kids love having teen role models to look up to—your presence will make a huge difference in their lives! BONUS: if you sign up and serve, you’ll get a $25 Amazon Gift Card as a thank you!
