The Vineyard Church of Ithaca was started in 1999 by a team of people largely made up of Cornell University students, and lead by Bob & Liz Wilson. In February of 1999, we held our first service on the 3rd floor of the Community School of Music and Arts building on State Street. While it took us a couple of years to really get established, the church then grew rapidly. In 2013, we welcomed Pastor Ward Davis and his family to our church. In 2022 Ward left us and we are entering into a pastor search. While we still have a large contingent of Cornell and Ithaca College students, more and more people from the Ithaca area, who were distant from the church, have gotten connected here at the Vineyard! As a young, and growing church, our story is still being written…we hope you’ll consider being a part of it!
