Founded by Pastor Bill Dwyer and Kenn Gulliksen, The Valley Vineyard Christian Church in Reseda is the second-oldest church in the Association of Vineyard Churches. The Vineyard Movement began in
the 1970s, and we have been spreading the love of God ever since. In all we do, our highest priority is to follow the words of Jesus Christ in order to be authentic followers who live for his
Here at our Christian fellowship church, we believe that everyone is a learner, and we can all learn from one another. As followers of the Bible and its teachings, we are all in the process of becoming more like Christ every day. Over the years, we have provided a community where believers come together to worship and serve others, but the love of Christ doesn’t end at our church doors.
In the same way that Jesus trained His disciples to share his Word and perform His works, we train the members of our church to reach out to others with compassion and love. Our global church
movement exists to serve communities around the world, and we have established several core values as a foundation for our ministry. At the center of all we do is a desire to allow Christ to shine
through us with His love, mercy, and power.
We aim to be honest in all of our deeds, and our church encourages integrity through personal accountability. While salvation for all is the goal of our ministry, we understand that not everyone comes to Christ at the same time. For that reason, we offer nonbelievers the respect they deserve when sharing the love of Christ. Fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ begins with understanding, and we do everything we can to make guests feel welcome at our church.
Unlike traditional churches, whose old-school approach to worship may not appeal to younger generations, we create a welcoming environment for all with a comfortable and casual environment. Our
contemporary music shares the same spirit of worship and praise found in the hymns of yesteryear, but for a younger crowd of followers who love Christ in a new way.
One of the ways we strive to reach and teach a new generation of believers is through our Bible study lessons. In today’s world, the constant distraction of technology makes it difficult to pay attention. Fortunately, Christians of all ages have the opportunity to enjoy the teachings of Christ at home and on the go through a set of audio Bible lessons offered through our church. We offer two lecture series presented by Dr. Dallas Willard at the Valley Vineyard Church in Reseda, CA. Each is a unique and profound addition to Dr. Willard's legacy of teaching Bible study topics to believers. Learn more about the lectures below:

As a follow-up to his best-selling book, The Divine Conspiracy, Dr. Willard delivered a series of talks that further illuminate his points made in the book. In an era when many Christians consider
Jesus a beloved but remote savior, Willard argues compellingly for the relevance of God to every aspect of our existence. He helps us to explore a revolutionary way to experience God — by knowing Him
as an essential part of the here and now, rather than only as a part of the hereafter. In other words, His Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven. While Dallas Willard’s books can be quite dense and a
slow read, he is much more accessible when speaking.
