We are excited about our 2014 Canadian Vineyard National Celebration. July 28-31 in Kitchener, Ontario. Our theme will be “Encounter Jesus. Live the Story.” Our time together will be designed for all ages, so plan now to attend with your family and friends to experience all that we love about our Vineyard DNA: God inspired worship, Biblical teaching, practical workshop tracks and lots of personal ministry time.
Cheryl Bear is Nadleh Whut'en from the Carrier Nation in Northern British Columbia. Her story includes having an earned doctorate, and being an award winning First Nations recording artist and national and international speaker. She and her family are living the story by visiting every one of the 1000 First Nations communities, Reservations, Reserves and settlements in the USA and Canada sharing the Great Story of Creator’s love and helping Native people to encounter Jesus. They have been to over 600 so far…and amazingly seem to have found "cuzzins" in every one. Cheryl is well known for her wisdom, sense of humour and ability to raise awareness of the value and uniqueness of Indigenous people and their culture.
David is a well-respected worship leader, songwriter and communicator who has opened the way for many people around the world to encounter Jesus. Together with his wife Anita, he is also known as a church planter and pastor having established churches in Canada and the US within the Vineyard family of churches. For the Ruis family, living the story involves a lifestyle that integrates creative worship expression with community that is engaged with the issues of poverty and social injustice. David has also been instrumental in seeing Vineyard communities established in Nepal and India. Much of his focus tends to be in indigenous settings, working amongst the poor as well as facilitating leadership development and fostering originality in songwriting and the arts in various cultural settings.
Robby has been called by God to live the story by helping equip and release the church in the power ministry of the Holy Spirit. Power encounters with Jesus leading to radically changed lives have been a mark of the church he planted with his wife Angie in Aurora, Illinois and in his itinerant ministry all over the world. Robby teaches on prophetic ministry, healing, ministry of the presence of God and deliverance from demonic power: all ministries in which he, and others he has mentored, have been significantly used as God’s Kingdom breaks in with signs and wonders. He was recently featured in the movies "Furious Love" and “Father of Lights”. His book “Do What Jesus Did “ was released in June 2013.
