Message from Our Founder Dean and President

Welcome to the Vineyard Place Biblical Seminary!


At VBS, we believe that an effective education doesn’t just come from memorizing or lecturing. Active participation in the learning process entails analyzing, discussing and collaborating - in order to comprehend and retain. All of our courses are designed to encourage deep mental processing and student engagement with the class material.

For years Vineyard Place Biblical Seminary in Houston, TX has been training pastors, elders, leaders, and teachers with a mind

for truth, a heart for God, and a life for ministry. We exist to equip

Christ-centered men and women with biblical knowledge and

theological principles that are grounded on the authoritative word of

God, for faithful, effective ministry to the church and the world.


If you believe the Lord is calling you to pastoral ministry, or if you are interested in serving the church more effectively as a Christian counselor, Sunday School teacher, global missionary, lay member, or if you are just hungry to grow more in your knowledge of and love for the Lord and His Word, then we would count it a privilege to help you on your way.
