In our largely individualistic society, many people think that church is irrelevant and unnecessary. Nearly sixty percent of American adults are not involved in a church. But church is important to Jesus - so important that he instituted it as his primary means to communicate his loving message in this world. Church planting, or starting new churches, is an effective way to communicate the message that Jesus has given the world.God has called the Vineyard to be a movement that is actively planting new churches. Since the Vineyard, USA began in 1981, Vineyard has planted over 600 churches in the U.S. and numbers more around the world.
Our Lead Pastor, Michael Lehmann, currently serves as the Regional Church Plantin Coordinator for the Southwest Region of Vineyard Churches. In this role, Michael works with church planters and potential church planters throughout the southwest in an effort to evaluate, train and equip them for the work they feel called to do in starting a new church.
As a church, we are currently involved in a church planting partnership to plant a new church in the Bryan/College Station area (near the campus of Texas A&M University). We are excited about the future of church planting and discovering new ways that we can partner in helping new churches "press the start button>"
