OUR HISTORY

OUR HISTORY

1982

In 1982 God gave young pastors Lance and Cheryl Pittluck a vision for a new kind of ministry on Long Island. Two years later, after having trained under the tutelage of Vineyard movement founder John Wimber, they left the staff of Vineyard Ministries International in Anaheim, CA, to come to New York and plant a church.

The vision was for a church that could help people meet God without the barriers that sometimes come with religion. It was for a church that that helps people become ‘disciples’ of Jesus through worship, thoughtful & practical approach to the Bible, healing, care for the poor, building community & relationships, reaching out to the world around us and launching other churches around the metro area that would do the same.

1989

By 1989 we had begun looking for a more permanent space to meet. Lance strongly felt the Lord say “provide a home for the poor & I’ll provide you a home”. By 1990 we had purchased a home in Freeport for single mothers (the Parish House) & God made the way for our current Rockville Centre facility (which was an old Baptist church building).

1997

In July of 1997 Lance was asked by John Wimber to assume leadership of the Anaheim Vineyard. In October of that year Lance handed the leadership of The Vineyard Church here in Rockville Centre over to Randy and Pat Larson.

2015

On October 1 of 2015, Randy and Pat retired after 50 years of ministry. They handed over leadership of The Vineyard Church to Ray and Julie Longwood.

We’re excited for what the future will bring!
