We have a wide variety of ministries to help you connect, grow, serve, and lead. We need the body to accomplish what God has called us to, and encourage you get involved with us as we endeavor to love God and love the people around us.
We believe community is essential and fundamental to a growing disciple of Jesus. While our corporate worship services re an important part of our church, it is in the context of small groups where we can experience real community. If you are not yet involved in a small group, we encourage you to make time for it in your life. Please contact Bonner Wolf if you interested in getting more information. See our community groups
The world gives us many confusing messages about what it means to be a man. Jesus has made it clear. At the Abbotsford Vineyard Church, our men’s ministries are not designed to be simply times where “men can be men”, but rather significant places where men can provide and receive mentoring, encouragement, challenges and support in being the men that God has called them to be. We value authenticity in our relationships and seek to help each other live lives of integrity, honesty, purity and pursuing God. Please see our Men's Ministry page.
We believe in Women at Abbotsford Vineyard. We believe in the beauty and strength and callings that God has placed in the hearts of women and we want to be a community that celebrates and supports each other through all of the seasons of life. We want to equip women to find their God-given gifts and to use them to serve wherever and in whatever capacity God has called them. For more information on events or ways to get involved, please see our Women’s Ministry page.
We love kids at Abbotsford Vineyard, because we believe that Jesus loves kids and that children have a special part to play in God’s kingdom. We want to provide our children with a safe and fun place to get to know Jesus, where they learn who they are as sons and daughters of God and how to live well together, and where they can be influenced by teachers who care about them. Please contact Emma Bergen if you interested in getting more information.p See our Kids Rock page.
We have a great group of youth in grades six through twelve who have a passion for Jesus, for knowing His Word, for wanting to be more like him, and for sharing Jesus with those around them.

See our Student Ministry page.

One of the unique ways we reach out to our own community is through our Free!Style Ministry, which provides a variety of brand new, high quality clothing that we give away to individuals and families who could use it. This often opens the doors to conversations, relationships, and continued opportunities to serve those in need. Please contact Leslie Canaday for more information on how you can get involved.
