Guest Message on Worship with John Hix

April 6, 2014

John Hix

Today, it was our privilege to welcome John Hix, Area Pastor for our Region in the Vineyard.

John brought a message today on Perspectives in Worship:  King, Father, God.

Please listen here.

Here is a little more about John:

I was born in So. California (1964 – the leading edge of Gen X), where my church experience began in the Episcopal church, I stayed there through my jr. high years, until I ended up at an active Presbyterian church with a dynamic youth group. In college (University of California, Santa Barbara) I was exposed to Calvary Chapel, and then the Vineyard. Jack Little was the pastor of the first Vineyard I attended in 1984. I will never forget my first Sunday in that church, where the worship was intimate and expressive, and the people were obviously connecting with God in a deeper way than I was used to. I didn’t participate as much as I observed that day, but my heart responded to what was going on, and I’ve been in the Vineyard ever since. It is my tribe.

I have participated in 4 Vineyard church plants, being on the original planting team in 3 of them. I have a great appreciation of the hard work of breaking new ground to raise up a church. I have lived the challenges of being bi-vocational, having to support my family in various “tent making” positions while my heart longed to be at the church. I have served as a worship leader, a worship pastor, an associate pastor, and am currently serving on staff at the Vineyard of Overland Park as the Worship Arts Pastor, with my 7 year anniversary coming up in November.
