WHO ARE WE
Dave Pedersen is currently the Senior Pastor at Fountain Vineyard Christian Fellowship in Port Elizabeth which he and Colleen started in 1984 in their home, after 9 years in Methodist ministry. Fountain Vineyard has served as a resource church for church plants in South Africa and beyond.

He is a man on a mission, involved in missions across Africa and has a great love for Safaris into the African bush. He is passionate about helping Christians recover from burnout through the power and grace of the gospel and the Christian community.
His personal hobby is discovering recreation through chainsaw creativity, while Colleen is passionately developing doulas in support of healthy birthing. They have four children and 9 grandchildren.

ABOUT THE VINEYARD
The Vineyard story is about ordinary people who worship and serve an extraordinary God. The Vineyard is simply one thread in the rich tapestry of the historic and global Church of Jesus Christ. But it is a thread of God's weaving. From the beginning, Vineyard pastors and leaders have sought to hold in tension the biblical doctrines of the Christian faith with an ardent pursuit of the present day work of the Spirit of God. Keeping balance is never easy in the midst of rapid growth and renewal. Visit the national website for more information on the Vineyard movement.
