Lisa says she has wanted to be a youth pastor her entire life! She’s made for this, she loves and understands young people, and her enthusiasm for them is contagious (better be careful – chat with her for a few minutes and she’ll get you so fired up about youth that you’ll probably want to join the youth ministry! ) Steve is a graduate of Vineyard Leadership Institute, loves teaching, and is also very excited about pastoring our youth. He also serves on our church leadership council.
A worshiper, accomplished songwriter and visual-multi-media artist, Ammee, along with her husband Jay, pursue music as an art inside and outside the walls of the church, having released several music projects to that end. Although her passions include art and music, her desire is for everyone to have an authentic experience with the creator of the universe, and to know that there is a Heavenly Father who loves them. Ammee and Jay have led worship at churches and conferences in the US and Canada over the last 15 years, but now call Grace Vineyard home.

Shannon spent many years trying to “figure out” God until the Holy Spirit grabbed a hold of her heart in 1989 and showed her that she had to look no further than the Bible to learn what God says about Himself (John 14:6). Since that day, Shannon has had a passion to study the Bible and to see others get excited about what God is saying to them in His Word. Shannon is married to Kevin who keeps her life exciting and they are raising two teenage boys, Connor and Kaelen, who are a blessing from God! Shannon and Kevin both love hanging out with people and hosting small groups in their home.
