Young Adults

WHO WE ARE

We are the Young Adult Community of Vineyard Columbus

We long to be young adults who are meaningfully connected, deeply formed in the way of Jesus, and on mission in the world around us.

We’ve created thoughtful spaces of connection and growth for those in the 18-30 age range. So whether you're a recent high school grad, college student, or young professional, we'd love to have you join us as we seek to follow Jesus together.

We host a monthly Young Adult Night on the first Thursday of the month at our Grandview Campus, small groups that meet throughout the city, retreats, and other periodic events that help us build community together. Stay up to date on the happenings of the young adult community, and worship with us at one of our campuses on Sunday mornings!

College

We have student organizations at Ohio State and Columbus State called InterVarsity Vineyard Columbus, the multi-ethnic chapter of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. These groups are Jesus-centered, Scripture-based, Spirit-empowered, and socially engaged.

What We Value

  • witnessing with our lives - Alpha
  • emphasizing mercy and justice - food pantries
  • engaging in the rich history of the Church - church services
  • and engaging with the Holy Spirit - prayer and healing

Alpha

When: Starting fall 2023, more details to come

Alpha is a place for conversations about faith around food with friends. We welcome anyone no matter where they're coming from. Conversation is the goal, not consensus. We listen deeply. And we value dependence - we choose to be dependent on the Holy Spirit, slow to speak, and always listening to what He's doing. Alpha begins with food, then we watch a film designed to spark conversation, and then we discuss the film in small groups.  We regularly host Alpha for students during the school year. If you'd like to have an Alpha on your campus, or you'd like to help out at the next Alpha we have planned, let us know!

We want to connect with you!

It can be challenging to find a community that feels right for you. Our small groups have one simple purpose: to bring people together. Whether you’re looking for a weekly Bible study or a place to explore faith, we would love to get you connected!
