What Is The Vine?
The Vine Campus Ministry is designed to mobilize staff, churches and students to reach their campuses with the Gospel across the state of Vermont. The Vine comes from the verse John 15:5 where Jesus states "I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without Me." Our intent in this ministry is to bring Christ to the Campus and the Campus to the Church. We believe that every college student needs to hear the good news of Jesus Christ and we believe that every student that has heard and responded to this good news by making Jesus the Lord and Leader of their lives is best served by connecting to a local expression of the church.
Where is The Vine?
Our "flagship" location is at the University of Vermont which is also open to students at Champlain College. In 2023, we will be breaking ground on two new campuses. If you are looking for a campus you can find a full list here. If you can't find your campus please let us know you would like to start a chapter at your campus and we will gladly help you make that happen. We have hopes and plans to reach out to other areas around Vermont as we find a develop new workers to break new ground.
