This is the culture many of us grew up with...
(adapted from Jesus and John Wayne, by Kristen Kobes du Mez)
This is the kind of culture we're trying to create at Vintage...
(reflecting what we're for, not simply what we're against)

Vintage's Culture:

  • Doesn't ask you to check your brain or heart at the door
  • Embraces and honors the beauty and power of the arts
  • Fosters respectful dialogue and disagreement
  • Invites questions and encourages healthy curiosity
  • Is a M.A.S.H. unit for the religiously/spiritually wounded
  • Loves/welcomes kids as full participants in the church
  • Takes the bible seriously, not always literally
  • Values shades of mystery over black/white certainty
