First, we want to say thanks for checking us out. We're pretty excited about what God is doing at our church and we're glad to have the chance to share that with you.


As a small congregation of people, we are committed to the spiritual health and spiritual growth of this community. Jesus is our Chief Shepherd. We value the priesthood of all believers and a plurality of elders in leadership. 


The Kingdom of God is expressed wherever Jesus rules and reigns, and His power is present to heal the sick, to cast out demons, and to enable us to live like Jesus did on the Earth. As a people, we are committed to the Word of God and to the Presence of the Holy Spirit in our midst.


We welcome you to join us on the journey to know Him more and to transform the world as we carry His Presence into it.                                                  



Santa Barbara Vineyard continues to carry the DNA of John Wimber’s heart for the Vineyard movement which was to engage the world with mercy, compassion, and miraculous signs and wonders that authenticate the gospel message of Jesus.


Instead of a single pastor-led congregation, we are an elder-led body. The elders lead in unity, and their spiritual gifts complement one another for the purpose of equipping and leading the congregation to do the works of Jesus and follow Jesus' command to "Go into the world".  


Our elders are:

Rory McCarthy

Melene Lockhart

David Mitchell


Our worship leaders are:

Chris Guest

Hannah Griffin



An Authentic people living in Obedience to God
