Vineyard Cincinnati is a non-denominational church with an approximate weekly attendance of 5,500 adults at our main location in Tri-County. We also have a site in Eastgate and a Spanish-speaking site called La Viña. Over the years we have been noted for acts of kindness, including giving away groceries and holding free car washes as part of our ministry.
One way we serve Greater Cincinnati is through the Healing Center, a safe place on our campus providing "help for the whole person" through forty different services. Every month we serve thousands of people struggling with spiritual, emotional and physical needs (more info at healingcentercincinnati.com).
