Vineyard Church wants to leave Dayton better than we found it by making long lasting simple and spiritual differences throughout the city and beyond.
Our mission is to cultivate a God-present and life-changing environment where people are transformed into passionate followers of Jesus Christ, who demonstrate God’s endless and unconditional love to the world.
Doug, who always desired a role in church leadership, would join the staff of The Cincinnati Vineyard, leaving his job in corporate America. It was during that time Doug would meet Scott Sliver, a worship leader and a small businessman. Becoming friends the duo would learn they shared a unique dream, to see a church like the Vineyard in Dayton.
Soon the two ordinary guys would pack up their families, leave Cincinnati for Dayton to change the world. They would plant The Vineyard church in Dayton with a single goal, to make a lasting change on the city in simple ways with the love and power of God. Since planting the church over 20 years ago, they have never looked back, leading the church in innovative ways of making God’s love known throughout the city and beyond
