Church planting, or starting new churches from scratch, is at the forefront of the mission of VCC and the Vineyard movement. If the disciples had never left Jerusalem in 33 A.D., we wouldn’t know what “church” is today. Since it’s inception in 1983, the Vineyard has planted over 2,500 churches worldwide in 70 countries, including over 600 churches in the USA. We aim to be more than a dead-end link in the chain of Christianity – rather, we work hard to start new churches and bring Christianity to future generations.
Jeff Miller served for 4 years on the Vineyard Southeast Church Planting Coordinator team as overseer of the state of Georgia, responsible for helping in the coaching and sending process of new churches across the southeast. For more information about these things, please visit our website at www.vineyardusa.org/site/task-forces/church-planting and click on church planting.
VCC has also planted our first daughter church. In summer 2007, we sent Rodger and Angela Otero and a small team to Chapel Hill, NC to start Greenleaf Vineyard Church! Check out their website at www.greenleafvineyard.org.
