Our Services

What are services like?
Vineyard is a multi-ethnic church that blends the vibrant faith of the historic Christian creeds with a sympathetic and discerning approach to contemporary culture. Worship style is informal, with music in the pop-rock (with a dash of gospel) style. Dress is casual. Combined average attendance at the Sunday celebrations is around 300. Children’s Ministry is available at both services for nursery through fourth grade in age appropriate classes. Youth Ministry (Middle School and High School) is also available at both celebrations. Fresh gourmet coffee is on hand before and after the celebrations.

What is the community like?
Vineyard is a community oriented church. We seek to foster personal relationships that enhance spiritual growth (we have many groups to choose from) and are committed to serving the local community. We embrace an active and contemplative approach to spirituality. We aim to pray for the sick as Jesus did - in a low-key, non-hype ministry style. We value the empowering presence of the Spirit and a vibrant practice of the spiritual gifts. We also value the spiritual disciplines of silence, solitude, and fixed-hour prayer. In fact, our church web site is the host for The Divine Hours by Phyllis Tickle, a flexible and contemporary approach to praying at regular intervals through the day, adapted from the Book of Common Prayer. We also highly value the spiritual path outlined in the Twelve Steps.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Everyone is welcome here! We value an innovative approach to ministry, with multimedia enhanced worship celebrations, an active website, and an entrepreneurial approach to launching new ministries. We are passionate about making Christianity accessible to people with no previous God-connection. We seek to overcome the cultural barriers that unintentionally exclude those who haven’t committed themselves to the path of Jesus. This makes the journey more invigorating for all concerned. We provide practical help to people seeking to understand the hows and whys of Christian life.

Rev. Donnell Wyche
Senior Pastor

The Reverend Donnell Wyche serves full-time as the Senior Pastor and the Head of Staff. Pastor Donnell joined the Vineyard church in 1997 and joined the staff in 1999 and was ordained in 2004. He grew up in Washington, DC and received his B.A. in computer science from The College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio and is a graduate of Vineyard Leadership Institute. Passionate about the intersections of race, faith, politics, and technology, Pastor Donnell started out as a Solution Architect at IBM in Southfield, MI. Since then, Pastor Donnell has served as a national task force leader for youth ministry and multi-ethnicity within VineyardUSA. He has led seminars and trainings on becoming culturally competent, transitioning your church to a multi-ethnic church, and has served as a part-time instructor in web technologies at Washtenaw Community College. Pastor Donnell is the president of the board of the InterFaith Council for Peace and Justice and has pursued issues of affordable, fair, and accessible housing as a board member of the Religious Action for Affordable Housing. As a trained computer engineer, Pastor Donnell created, in partnership with the late Phyllis Tickle, the online home of The Divine Hours. His latest technology project is Community Center for Churches, a software tool to help pastors better care for and shepherd their congregants. Pastor Donnell is married to Maria, an early childhood advocate and speech-language pathologist, and together, they are raising three multi-ethnic, spiritually engaged, peace loving, politically aware, woke activists!
