The History of the Vineyard Movement
In 1982, John Wimber, a pastor and church consultant, was asked to serve as the leader of a newly formed association of churches (all in Southern California) called Vineyard. As the leader of this new movement, John pastored the pastors and trained and encouraged the planting of churches internationally. Vineyard churches have been planted in many nations including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, Russia, Turkey, throughout the European continent, Africa, Southeast Asia, and Australia. God has shown us, however, that his desire is to build not only the Vineyard, but also promote his Kingdom, and encourage, build, and love the whole church.
