“Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer, he desires a noble task.” – 1 Timothy 3:1

Vineyard Institute was formed out of a passion to raise up and train emerging leaders in the Vineyard Movement who desire to take on the task of becoming an overseer with a noble and good heart.

Our Mission

Vineyard Institute seeks to equip and develop Christian leaders at every level of every church, within the multinational, multicultural and multigenerational Vineyard community. VI includes the best Vineyard theological resources available and an educational platform that is flexible to the needs and goals of learning communities in the local church.

At VI, you will be trained through high quality theological education, integrated with spiritual transformation so that you are prepared for Kingdom work at any level in the church and in the world. If you are interested in developing your leadership through theological, Biblical and practical application, then Vineyard Institute is for you.

“The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few…….. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.” – Luke 10:2-3  Before Jesus sent out his disciples…He spent time training them to tell everyone about the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick. Vineyard Institute, a global education provider, was created to equip the people of God to pursue the call to go out into the world as workers of the harvest, whether that calling is a pastor, ministry leader, church planter, missionary or a disciple in the workplace and community.
