Ancient-Future faith. A new way of doing church. A re-think of the gospel for our time - bringing the "good" back into the good news.
In a University town like Ann Arbor that leans left, is environmentally friendly, and hears "secular humanist" as a compliment, not a slur, we've had to do our homework. The conventional framing of faith in the mold of someone's culture war shrinks the gospel, draining the good out of the good news. The Vineyard Church of Ann Arbor aspires to be not only a great local church, but a mission outpost as well—contextualizing the gospel for a town like ours.
Intrigued yet? Come here to live. Get a part time job. Immerse yourself in a learning experience to field-test your crazy hope: that the gospel is big enough for the world you live in and that the church can really matter! And, in the process, maybe discover your niche in the mission of God to renew the earth one nook and cranny of creation at a time.
So what are you planning to do this year? Next year? We're looking for those who are eager to learn, committed, curious, and willing to invest in something bigger than themselves. You will be challenged and stretched over the following months; but we guarantee it won't be boring and you could find yourself growing in ways unimagined.
