  • Jacqueline Furness

    pastor of Prayer and Healing

    Jacqueline has been connected to the Vineyard movement since 1988. She quickly fell in love with Vineyard’s “everyone gets to play” motto, along with the theology of the Kingdom of God being “here, but not yet.” She has always been drawn to prayer ministry during her time in the church. She started to attend our Vineyard in 1997, where she says she "learned how to love God, His Church, and His people." She is passionate about connecting others to each other and to God. She is happily married to her husband Tom, with whom she has 4 amazingly gifted children: James, Nancy, Julia, and Eva.

  • ANNIE GONZALES

    Office Coordinator/Graphic Designer

    Annie has been with Vineyard since 1998 when she experienced the wonders of the Holy Spirit at a dream conference in Nashville, TN. Moving to Indianapolis in 2000 she began attending Indy Vineyard and remembers clearly standing in the back of the sanctuary during worship being overwhelmed with the love of God and thinking to herself “This is home.” Annie began working with us in 2016 as office coordinator and designing graphics. She has a passion for worshipping Jesus with everything inside her. She has a gift of joy, helps, hospitality and encouragement. Annie has been married to the love of her life, Merlin, since 2001 and loves going on adventures with him, having fun with her step kids - Andrew and Kayla, and being in community with her Vineyard family. Growing up in New Orleans, she cherishes her southern heritage, cooking, entertaining and most of all her family. Annie loves creating designs that let the glory of God shine through and living in His abundant joy! Her favorite life scripture is Romans 15:13 The Voice.

  • Heather Jessee

    Children's Director

    Heather has been a part of the Vineyard family nearly 10 years.  Her family returned to her home state after her husband served in the Air Force for 12+ years. In that relatively short time they moved 5 times.  For her there is nothing sweeter than coming home and staying more than a few years.  As a result of a lot of moves Heather has learned the value of being rooted in family and being known.  She is known as someone who has a lot of energy, enthusiasm and joy!   She has been volunteering with Vineyard Kids since she first started attending.  Her love for kids is deep.  She is moved by the Father’s love and wants each and every child to know their value.  She wants each child to know God is happy and in a good mood when He thinks about them!  She dreams big and plans for the day when each child walks in the fullness of Christ and their calling as sons and daughters.  Heather and her stud hubs, John, have been married 18 years and have three boys she regularly cries and thanks God for: Samuel (15), Avery (14), and Jack (10).

  • Ian Wray

    Youth Pastor

    Ian joined the Vineyard staff in 2018 and is the Youth Pastor here at Indy Vineyard Church. He felt the calling to youth ministry while on a mission trip called the World Race, where he served around the world for 11 months visiting 15 different countries. Ian loves to travel, enjoys playing board games with friends, and anything that would make an extrovert smile. In other words he LOVES people! He is a Hoosier through and through, born and raised in Muncie, Indiana, graduated from Westfield High School, and went to Anderson University for his Bachelor’s degree. And the most important thing to know about him, besides loving Jesus, is that Taco Bell is his number one love language
