Vinia is a diverse family of leaders and churches on mission together to engage, develop, and empower leaders who bear lasting fruit for kingdom movement.
At our core, we are committed to abiding in the Vine, bearing much fruit, and the kingdom of God. We believe that leadership begins with the transforming work that God is doing in us before anything else. Our being precedes are doing! We realize that apart from God, we can do nothing!
Vinia leaders include young adults who are learning to lead more confidently, and seasoned ministers who are continuing to strengthen their leadership. Confident leadership flows out of our character (heart), convictions (head), and competency (hands).
Fruitfulness is the result of our connectedness spiritually to God, personally to our family, friends, and neighbors, and professionally to the leaders and team around us. We lead in any opportunity with internal clarity – knowing who we are, why we are here, and where we are going. Every Vinia leader has a clear sense of personal calling and a written life impact plan which focus our life.
Organizationally, we belong to the Missionary Church and have been around for over one hundred years. Our churches and ministries share in a common statement of faith and practice, and together we support and strengthen one another. We embrace seven tools that grow our leadership confidence and leaders around us.
