One Day to Change the World

Happy Leman reflects to us how disheartening the news can be from all around the world. It’s easy to feel like there is no way we can personally help. However, when we aren’t personally able to leave our positions to participate in disaster relief, we can definitely support the people who do. Happy unpacks the different ways we can partner with those who are, in Vineyard terms, “Doing the Stuff” on site to change the world with Jesus.


About The Author
- Happy & Dianne are true partners in providing the senior leadership for The Vineyard Church - Urbana (IL). The partnership began over 30 years ago when they met and married at the University of Illinois. After a few years in secular careers, they founded the Vineyard in 1978. The change in their lives came when Dianne was declared infertile by two major hospitals. A friend suggested they pray for children. Hap & Di did, and God blessed them with five natural children (four boys and one girl). From this life-changing experience, they started a Bible study that grew into the current Vineyard. The focus from the beginning has been healing, the Holy Spirit, and the Kingdom of God. Happy has served in various roles throughout Vineyard USA. In additional to being a current Vineyard USA Board member, Happy is the Regional Overseer for the Midwest Region. Happy also directs Vineyard Partners (a group of 30 churches) which is involved in Vineyard church planting throughout central Mexico
