Freedom Vineyard is a community led project, we only do what individuals within our community have a passion to do. We take joy in growing leaders and seeing them serve both our community and other communities around the city.

Brad Culver orchestrates a satellite Freedom community in McRae (about an hour away from Bancroft). Brad and Mary are long time Vineyard leaders with a real passion for creating community amongst those other churches are not able to reach. Brad is also a well known speaker in the alt church world south of the border. If you are in their neck of the woods I'm sure they'd appreciate a visit.
