What we do
Vineyard Missions connects and equips Vineyard USA churches to participate in the mission of God across cultures.
1. We serve Vineyard USA churches by interacting with interested individuals and organizations internationally, organizing various volunteer groups (e.g., the Missions Leadership Team and country partnerships), and reporting back to the churches on the development of church planting efforts internationally.
2. We provide capacity building in cross-cultural skills, assist with cross-cultural leadership development, and scaffold churches' care of their long-term, cross-cultural workers, including providing expertise in crises.
Through our efforts we also acknowledge that every church belonging to the Vineyard USA community is an individual local congregation with responsibility for its own missional efforts and decisions while interdependently working in connection with other churches around the world.
