Changing Lives

God changes lives…

Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of witnessing first-hand the transformation that takes place when people find Jesus and go on a journey of following him.

Here are some of the many stories of people whose lives have been changed here at Trent Vineyard. You’ll find stories of hope, restoration, freedom and healing, all pointing to the fact that God really does change lives.

I’m grateful to each person who’s contributed their story and hope that you’ll be moved and inspired by reading them.
