MISHAWAKA, Ind. – (July 19, 2016) The Vineyard Church and DJ Construction have embarked on an addition and renovation project to add much needed space to the church’s facilities.

However, as Lead Pastor Mark Pope points out, it’s not only about more space. Pope says, “This project is not primarily about more space but about more relationship. Relationship with those who already attend our church and with those who have yet to walk in our doors.”

The new 7,000 square foot auditorium will essentially double the seating capacity, while the existing auditorium will be transformed into an expanded atrium space that will allow for greater fellowship.

Pope continues, “Our expanded atrium will allow people to connect with others between our weekend worship services and especially before and after an evening small group, workshop, or class. Our new auditorium will not only offer room for more people, but also an even better atmosphere for friends and family to explore Jesus. This is huge! Our hope is that hundreds (and perhaps even thousands) of individual lives will be eternally impacted in the years to come!”

Additionally, the project will add more office space to allow the staff to function efficiently.
