Vineyard College primarily offers ministry training by internship and has been equipping people like you for ministry since 1997. We want to help you recognise their unique gifts and abilities, as well as giving a thinking biblical base to the learning. Our internship programmes combine theory and learning by doing. The training occurs where you are, in your own church or organisation, with the people you already know, affecting the community you are already engaged with.

We are a Registered Private Training Establishment, accredited by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority and with NZQA’s highest quality ranking, a three yearly audit cycle.

Together with his wife Cindy, Mark planted two of the early Vineyard Churches in New Zealand. Starting with a few night school classes in 1996, they have since developed the college into a vibrant organisation that has students from a great variety of churches and organisations all across New Zealand. Mark and Cindy have 4 children, a number of crazy animals, and live in the sunny Waitakere Ranges.
