Vibrant Church Initiative

The Vibrant Church Initiative (VCI) launches congregations into a new way of being and doing church. It is an ongoing process for renewal that is unique to each congregation and its mission field. Click here to view the VCI Brochure and take a few moments to watch the video from the Texas Annual Conference (click here).

On Monday, September 9, 2019, at a special Church Conference meeting, VCI was approved by the members of the church who were in attendance. There were 150 ballots cast with 146 voting yes for a 97% approval for the VCI Prescription Report.


What's Next

Over the next 18 to 24 months, we will be working to implement the items laid out in the Prescription Report. Click below to see a timeline of dates and action items in the VCI Prescription Report.
