Vineyard Institute trains a leader leader to lead, to know the Bible, to engage Kingdom theology, and to deepen one's spiritual life.

If you believe you are being called forward as a disciple, pastor, church-planter, missionary, or ministry leader – then Vineyard Institute is designed for you.

Vineyard Institute (VI) is a global Vineyard theological and biblical education initiative, coordinated by a team of leaders from 4 continents. VI provides practical, accessible biblical training for leaders of all levels in churches worldwide.

Studies occur both online and via cohorts on location, and the curriculum combines online learning with local mentoring and student-to-student interaction. The flexibility of the program can be adapted to a variety of ministry contexts. Churches can use individual modules for training large numbers of people, while more advanced leaders can choose from a number of diploma programs.

Equipping Through Education.

Vineyard Institute was created to equip the people of God to pursue the call to go out into the world as workers of the harvest.

Since 2013, we have partnered with over 400 Vineyard pastors and churches around the world to help them find, equip, and deploy leaders from their churches to go out into the harvest field and spread The Good News.

Vineyard Institute – Real World Education

VI’s global training program includes high quality theological education, integrated with spiritual transformation and hands-on ministry training so that God’s people are prepared to do Kingdom work at any level in the church and in the world.

Students typically hold full-time jobs while they journey through this program serving and building learning communities in their local church and online. VI instructors are the best practitioners and educators from churches and seminaries around the world who provide an undergraduate equivalent. But it’s the local pastor who provides real world hands on training right in the student’s community.

Your Kingdom Come

A Vineyard Perspective On The Kingdom Of God

From the beginnings, the Vineyard has been committed to the proclamation of the kingdom of God and to bearing witness to the deeds of the kingdom through healing (physical, emotional, and social), doing justice, and delivering those held captive by evil.

Since the kingdom of God is the future reign of God breaking into the present through the life and ministry of Jesus, we are a forward-leaning movement emphasizing the ever-reforming nature of the church engaging the world in love.

This booklet as part of The Distinctives Series, with reflections from over 25 different contributors from around the global Vineyard, will connect you with key ideas central to our shared Vineyard mission. The Distinctives Series is for every pastor, leader, and individual member of a congregation. Each booklet is also an excellent teaching tool for newcomers and those getting to know the Vineyard. It's also perfect preaching material for Sunday messages!

The booklet is written in an accessible and passionate style, each 16 page booklet will inspire you to engage with God, and our Vineyard calling, in a fresh, powerful way.
