Who We Are

The Vineyard Church of Wellsboro is one of 600 Vineyard Churches nationwide and is affiliated with the Vineyard Church USA (see vineyardusa.org for more info). We gather every Sunday evening to deepen our relationship with Jesus and to enjoy one another's company. Our service lasts about 90 minutes. While we're there we experience excellent worship music with a contemporary band, and hear a message from the Bible that's relevant, practical and encouraging. Because we have so many children in our church, there’s a well-staffed nursery and Sunday School programs for the children. Plus, we serve great coffee and bagels and healthy snacks (for free I might add :-)!

One of the most powerful aspects of Jesus’ ministry was that He was personal, and relational. It’s hard to experience love from a distance. We experience love best as we interact with other people. Relationships are what bring and connect people to the Body of Christ. So while worship services are a very important part of our church life, it's at our small group meetings during the week that we experience real fellowship. Many have said that it’s the first time in their lives that they’ve ever developed deep relationships and felt connected to other people.

As a church we’re also aware that nearly 2/3 of the people in Tioga County have no church affiliation. It has been said that loving deeds done by unassuming Christians convince more people of the love of God than all the words in the world! One of the important ministries of our church is connecting with this un-churched population in practical and relevant ways. We have fun together experiencing new ways that we can reach out in love to our families, friends, and neighbors.

If you're looking for a church home where you can grow spiritually, or if you would like to re-connect with God, then come and visit us at the Vineyard Church of Wellsboro. If you have any questions, please give us a call or email us. We'd love to hear from you.

Bob Morris

Lead Pastor: Bob Morris Feeling that this was where God was calling them to be, Bob, Debbie and their two children, Kristen and Rob, moved to Wellsboro in 1986. Bob had been recruited as the CEO of Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital. In 1989, he helped engineer the creation of the Laurel Health System and served as its first CEO. In 1994, he was the victim of a near fatal motorcycle accident. Because of complications from his injuries, Bob resigned from his position at LHS in 1996. On Sept 9, 2001, a small group began to meet at the Morris’s home to worship and pray for God’s direction. To their surprise, within 6 months the group had doubled in size. Within a year they began to seriously wonder if God would have them start a new ministry in Wellsboro. In July 2002, after numerous meetings and encouragement from Vineyard Church leaders, and after much prayer and fasting, Bob and Debbie felt called to “plant” a Vineyard church in the Wellsboro area. This began a two-year educational process for Bob through the Vineyard Leadership Institute. In June of 2004, following completion of his training, Bob was approved to be a Pastor through the Association of Vineyard Churches, and their home church was released to be a Vineyard Church. The church was legally incorporated in November of 2004 as the Vineyard Church of Wellsboro. Bob grew up in Vestal, N.Y. He has a B.A. in Business from SUNY at Binghamton, and an M.B.A. with a certification in Health Administration from Cornell University. Bob serves the Board of the Tioga County Partnership for Community Health and is a member of the Wellsboro Ministerium. He enjoys playing guitar and bass on the church worship team. He confesses to being a N.Y. Knicks and N.Y. Yankees fan. We have decided as a church body not to hold this against him. Pastor Morris is deeply loved by the Vineyard Church of Wellsboro family. We thank God for Bob and Debbie Morris everyday.
