Butterfly Words

Hi, my name is Madison Thompson and I was involved with a program at Anaheim Vineyard this summer called STP (Summer Training Program). It is a program where different pastors from the church would teach a week on different subjects.  This went on for about three months.  It was put together...

Why Should I Spend...

Over the summer the Anaheim Vineyard youth group held a youth discipleship program. The teens had a final project to do with several options to choose from—one of which was to write about something they experienced this summer while doing the program. Redpoint is going to include several of...

Cultivation Generation 2012

My name is Kiah Jones. I’m 15 and from the Vineyard Boise. God moved me. Broke me. Changed me over Cultivation Generation 2012. This is my story….what I could express.

God’s Work I...

I will be graduating this year and have been thinking about my time at youth group coming to an end. It has been an awesome ride. I have been blessed in so many ways by being involved. First I have learned to read my Bible more consistently. I have also gained courage to pray for complete...
