Life verse: "Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me, watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly." Mathew 11.28-30

Jacob Cunningham - Worship Pastor
Jacob has been involved in praise and worship since he was about thirteen He started out leading a children's church band, then later a youth band, was involved in a couple of worship teams and was eventually hired on staff as a worship leader at a church in Clearwater, FL. Jacob has always enjoyed and been thankful for the opportunity to express his love for God through music and experience God's presence in worship. Jacob has an amazing wife, Crystal and two beautiful daughters, Molly and Ruby. These three girls are Jacob's motivation.
Music is Jacob's passion. Aside from being involved in music in the church, Jacob has always spent a lot of time writing original music for his own bands that he started with his friends to play out locally. Jacob has no shame in plugging his current band, Friends of Giants, in this bio. Check out https://www.facebook.com/FoGiants
Jacob feels a little funny talking about himself in the third person. Kind of like Jimmy from that one Sienfeld episode... "Jimmy might have a compound fracture! Jimmy's going into shock."

Bill Moore - Prayer Team Coordinator
Bill grew up in Delaware. He met his wife, Kate, in geometry class in tenth grade. They have a daughter, Kim, and she and her husband, Corey, have two children, Hunter & Sky. They moved to Florida in 1978 and bought a business on Treasure Island. That was three years of learning about how faith works. The business didn’t turn out quite how they expected, but it did get them here. He first heard that Jesus loved him on July 4, 1976. He was an atheist, but after hearing about Jesus’s love for twenty minutes he was in. He wanted it all. He went home, bought a Bible and read it. They joined a Presbyterian church where the pastor was Spirit filled. They were saved and filled with the Spirit all in three months. Through the journey, he's been a deacon, an elder and a pastor. They have been involved in youth ministry, college and twenty something ministry, prophetic teams, and healing teams. Bill was a singles pastor in an Assembly of God Church and they have always been in a small group. When Bill was a Presbyterian he felt he was too Pentecostal, and when he was a Pentecostal, he was too evangelical. Then they found the Vineyard. They fit! The prayer ministry has been a part of our DNA ever since the beginning. Bill has led and taught ministry teams, extended healing time, intercessory prayer groups and prayer walking.
