After several years of joint family vacations and planning, in the summer of 2011, Dr. Hal Hester and his family moved to Brooksville, FL to start the Vineyard Christian Church in the family room of Drs. Natalie and Karl Leibensperger.
In January 2012, the Vineyard Christian Church moved from a home church into rented store-front space. When the Nature Coast Vineyard of Inverness discontinued meeting in 2013, the Vineyard Christian Church integrated current members of Nature Coast into the Brooksville congregation. From its humble beginning with a few families meeting on Sunday afternoons, the Vineyard Christian Church has steadily grown and is bursting the seams of its store-front location.
As we prepare to move into larger quarters with multiple buildings, Pastor Hal envisions more locations throughout the Nature Coast area, extending the message and ministry of the Kingdom of God.
