The Story of River Heights Vineyard
River Heights Vineyard Church began “officially” on Sunday, November 4, 1990, but the story goes back further than that. Jon and Sue Marsden had been part of Victory Vineyard Church in Burnsville, MN for eleven years. Jon was associate pastor there from 1983-1990. God began to prompt them and the leadership at Victory that the time was ripe for them to go out, so Jon and Sue and a team from Victory Vineyard were sent out to plant the church in Inver Grove Heights. The church met for two years in the auditorium at Simley High School and for thirteen years in rented retail space at 6410 Cahill Ave. E. In October of 2005 we were able to purchase the land and building we now meet in at 6070 Cahill Ave. E. in Inver Grove Heights.
From the start we have desired to be a people with a passion to love Jesus Christ and one another. We want to be a church that honors Jesus Christ, teaches and follows the Bible, helps people experience God’s presence, builds relationships filled with God’s love, and gets involved in the community by serving and caring. We hope to be a part of that larger company of people through whom God will work to bring revival to the Twin Cities.
