Rebuilding Our Communities

Founding Pastor, Happy Leman, concludes our message series, Kingdom Impact. Happy will discuss the power of impacting our community. Cities are not hard to change, it just can’t be done from inside the church walls. The church is empowered by the Spirit to be a major change agent in our communities because the problems are spiritual and they do not have natural solutions alone. God’s Kingdom is about more than personal salvation, it also includes community change. Start asking the Holy Spirit what you are to do about this situation.


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
