John Mumford shares the biblical teachings on the church and it’s purpose
John and Eleanor married in 1978 after meeting at university in England. They have two sons, two wonderful daughters-in-law and four grandchildren! They worked for nearly two years with John Wimber on the staff of the Anaheim Vineyard in California, before starting the first Vineyard church in Europe in 1987 (South West London Vineyard). In 2008 they handed over the leadership of that church to concentrate more on the Vineyard movement, both nationally and internationally, then in 2015 they transitioned the leadership of Vineyard Churches UK & Ireland.
Together they now coordinate the Vineyard International Executive, which helps facilitate the growth of the Vineyard internationally. More nations are becoming their own established Vineyard families every year. Growth is exciting but it presents challenges. John and Eleanor’s desire is to enhance the Vineyard family’s ability to work harmoniously across the world so that we can be more effective together in fulfilling the Great Commission that God has given us. John and Eleanor visited our camp some years ago and we are delighted to have them back as guest speakers.
