Show Notes

In this episode of We Are Vineyard, Jay talks with David Parker about growing up as a troublemaker in an irreligious home and the backward way he came to know Jesus. David shares about building a church where people feel comfortable bringing their loved ones, some practical ways to make your church more welcoming to unchurched people, and why he loves having a church filled with non-Christians.

David Parker is Pastor Emeritus of the Desert Vineyard Christian Fellowship, an outward-focused church in the high desert of Southern California. Over its 45-year history, the Desert Vineyard has pursued a vision to connect with its community and culture in a way that has produced a diverse and fruitful congregation. 

David has a B.A. in Ancient History from the University of Missouri and an M.A. in Theology from Regent College, Canada. He has been a featured speaker for the past 35 years at worldwide Vineyard and New Wine conferences.  David and his wife Nancy have a loving marriage of 47 years and a close family of four adult children and five grandchildren who live in the western parts of Mexico, Canada, and the United States.
