The Vineyard has been a part of Gainesville since its start in 1987. We love this city. We love the students and how we get to sow into their lives before they go off to change the world. We love the downtown area, from shopping at the Wednesday Union Street Farmer's Market to hanging out at Volta or The Bull (which our community pastor Jacob manages). We love hiking Payne's Prairie, swimming in the springs, and enjoying local theatre. There are a thousand reasons to love Gainesville, but behind it all is our desire to be a community of Jesus-followers that reaches out to everyone around us in authentic, relational ways that share God's love.
