Our history

Jim Bricker and his wife Kristy started Vineyard Community Church with a small group of friends in 1993.  The Holy Spirit instilled on Jim's heart the vision of a contemporary church on the southside of Indianapolis that worshiped with upbeat music, taught the Bible in practical ways and had a casual setting where all would feel welcome.

On Mother's Day of 1993, Vineyard Community Church met for the first time in a meeting room at the Saint Andrews Apartments in Greenwood.  That first celebration included 35 people.  Over the years the church has met in several locations including a day care center, a former skating rink and a former ladies workout center.  In 2006, the church moved to our current location, 512 S. Madison Avenue.

Our church family has grown from 35 people to more than 2,500.
