Welcome to the Hyde Park Vineyard Church’s campus ministry webpage! We’re glad you found us.
The best way to get to know a church is to visit.
We would like to give you a brief overview of the church’s history and mission and hope that you consider letting us be a part of your home away from home!
Rand Tucker, our senior pastor, founded the church in 1998 among University of Chicago students. Rand is passionate about developing leaders and serving the community of Hyde Park.
Our Associate Pastor Sue Valentine studied behavioral science as an undergrad and then earned her MBA—both at UChicago. Sue has a strong passion for connecting with students as she easily relates to both the struggles and joys of studying at UChicago. She is also trained in spiritual direction, which makes her a great counselor and an excellent listener.
Jamie Keener, our representative to the student community, is a fourth-year English major at the University of Chicago. She volunteers regularly at Vineyard and is also involved in InterVarsity Christian Fellowship.
The church has moved around the neighborhood over the years but has remained committed to serving and developing students. We recently purchased and moved into a building on a residential block. Our address is 5333 S. Greenwood Avenue. We meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00 and 11:00 AM. We also have a midweek service called MORE that meets at 7:00 PM on Wednesdays.
Hope to see you Sunday!
