Meet the pastors and staff of Vineyard North Phoenix.

Brian T. Anderson

Senior Pastor

Brian is the founding and Senior Pastor of Vineyard Church North Phoenix located in Phoenix, AZ. Brian and his wife, Thora, planted VC as a home Bible study with only a few people in September 1985 and have pastored the church for the over 30 years since.

Brian has a desire to build a healthy church that does the works of Jesus. He especially loves to train & equip other pastors & leaders to help them become all that God has for them. God has used Brian to impart a greater hunger for the Bible, worship, holiness, & renewal to people throughout the world. Over the years, Brian has served Vineyard USA, an association of about 500 churches around the U.S., as a board member, regional coach, and Vice President.
