Our Story

Jim and Kristy Bricker started Vineyard Church with a small group of friends in 1993. God gave Jim a vision of a church where people—churched and unchurched—could come as they are and feel loved. A place where people could worship passionately, learn the Bible in practical ways, and where anyone could come and belong.

Vineyard Church gathered for the first time in a meeting room at the Saint Andrews Apartments in Greenwood on Mother's Day of 1993. That first celebration included 35 people, and we've been celebrating ever since.

In 2021, Vineyard partnered with the Baxter YMCA. Over the past 30 years, our church family has welcomed countless thousands in the Central Indiana area to experience the love, healing, and hope of Jesus.

Vineyard Community Church is part of Vineyard USA

Vineyard USA (VUSA) is a rapidly growing multi-ethnic network of over 2400+ churches worldwide, and has impacted the Church as a whole across denominational lines in uncountable ways. The Vineyard movement emerged on the scene in the late 1970s, at what has been called a “crossroads” of American Christianity and culture. Calling ourselves “empowered evangelicals,” the Vineyard Movement seeks to blend the best of the Evangelical traditions with their focus on Christ-like character and regard for the Scriptures, with the best of the Pentecostal and Charismatic traditions of welcoming the empowering of the Holy Spirit for life, ministry, and acts of service.
