Show Notes

Welcome to season 3 of the We Are Vineyard podcast! This year marks the 50th anniversary of Vineyard churches in the US, and to celebrate we will be highlighting stories of local churches throughout the country. In today's episode, Jay talks with John Elmer and Brad Bailey about Westside Vineyard Church. John and Brad share stories of how the church was formed, the approach to learning leadership lessons as they were figuring things out in the early days, and some characteristics and values of the Vineyard that have remained through all these years.  Brad Bailey serves as the Lead Pastor of the Westside Vineyard Church (on the Westside of Los Angeles). He began attending the church in 1985 and became the Lead Pastor in 1991, the second to follow Kenn Gulliksen who had initially planted the church. Brad is also a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and has valued serving the Vineyard movement as an Area Leader and Missional Partnership Leader for India. Brad’s wife Leah is a Bone Marrow Transplant Coordinator at UCLA. They have four young adult children, having left the “nest” to Buddy…the Golden Retriever.
