Why Church?

Our guest speaker this week not only comes with a wealth of wisdom but also a ton of love for Harvest and our Vineyard Canada family as a whole.

Joyce Rees was the founding director of Jacob's Well, an intentional Christian community in the downtown east side of Vancouver, often referred to as the poorest postal code in Canada. During her near decade leading the Jacob's Well community she also planted the Strathcona Vineyard.  Joyce is a regarded speaker in many streams of the Church around the world and is co-creator of the theological podcast, Down to Earth, which had over 50,000 individual listeners in its second season! Additionally, she has served for the past two years in a part-time capacity as our National Resource Coordinator for Vineyard Canada. In this role she curates and creates resources for our Vineyard pastors and leaders, and supports our catalysts and their initiatives to strengthen Vineyard churches across the country. Calum and Joyce now pastor Epic Vineyard in Calgary.
