Mike is passionate about equipping people do to what they were made to do and seeing the Kingdom of God bring freedom in peoples lives. He has been apart of that through a variety of ways including; campus ministry leadership while attending University of Minnesota Duluth (graduating with a Political Science degree focusing on International Relations), a college ministry internship, completion of Vineyard Leadership Institute and now as a pastor of Small Group Community and Men’s Ministry all through the Duluth Vineyard. He is excited to see how God is going to use all that experience to raise up the next generation of Heroic Leaders! Jess has been heavily involved at the Duluth Vineyard for 4 years. After graduating from University Minnesota Duluth with a degree in psychology and working with at-risk youth through a variety of non-profits in Minnesota she found herself back in Duluth. Jesus captured her heart and it has been a wild ride of leading small groups, graduating from Vineyard Leadership Institute, working as an office manager (at the Duluth Vineyard) and now getting to point young adults towards their creator, so they may find their identity in Him and then join in on what the Father is doing to change the world!
