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.
