Sam & Brooke Cerny
Sam met the Lord when he was young and grew up in the Anaheim Vineyard. After marrying Brooke, they moved to Central Asia and joined a church-planting team there. After those years of missions work, he returned to the States, taught at Harvest Bible University in downtown Los Angeles, and is currently pastoring Vineyard Yorba Linda. He earned an M.A. in Apologetics from Biola University and a Th.M. from Regent University. Sam and Brooke have four children, and along with a deep passion for the Lord and His church, he loves to backpack, climb peaks, and scuba dive.
Brooke grew up in the Anaheim Vineyard, and Jesus captured her heart at an early age. She and Sam spent a few years on the mission field in Asia and afterwards returned to the States. Brooke loves the local church and longs to see God move in the community. She is praying for another Jesus People type movement. Her hobbies include traveling and eating out as often as possible. She has four teenage and adult children and her first grandchild on the way. Brooke serves as the San Diego / Orange County area pastor for Vineyard USA.
Stephanie does administrative work for Vineyard Yorba Linda, has been married to her husband Mike for 21 years, and is a mother to five amazing humans. She was originally from Colorado but considers herself a Californian now. She enjoys the outdoors, beach, mountains or deserts and loves being able to play the guitar and sing at church.
Admin / Worship Leader
Valerie was born in Northern California and attended college at LeTourneau University in Longview, TX. She met her husband Roger while in Texas. They have three wonderful daughters. After attending the Anaheim Vineyard for several years Valerie joined Vineyard Yorba Linda in the summer of 2020 and came on staff shortly thereafter. Valerie loves travel, cooking and plays a mean game of Bananagrams.
Deanna met the Lord as a young teen in 1991 at the Anaheim Vineyard and was blessed to spend her formative years there. College and missionary work in Kenya helped broaden her experience with the worldwide church, but she has always considered the Vineyard her spiritual home. She married her husband Eric in 2006 and now spends her days homeschooling their six children.
Roger was raised in the Reformed Church and accepted Jesus at a young age. He began attending the Anaheim Vineyard while home from college in the summer of 1995 where he was captured by the power of God’s presence in worship. He graduated from LeTourneau University as a Mechanical Engineer in 1998 and married his wife Valerie two weeks later. They have three daughters and Roger enjoys camping, working on cars and international travel.
OUR PRACTICES & BELIEFS
Our goal is to be a community who practices and
lives out what we believe including...
Exploring the Scriptures
We dive deep into the Bible and learn all that we can about God and His ways. Bible studies are an intricate part of our life together.
Did not our hearts burn within us…while he opened to us the Scriptures? (Luke 24:32)
Learning to Pray
As we pray constantly, God does meet with us and answer us. So together we’re learning not just to pray, but also to persevere in prayer.
One of his disciples said to him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray…’
Worshipping the Lord
He alone is worthy of our worship. We love to sing to Him and offer all that we are and all that we have to Him.
For the Father is seeking such people to worship him.
Returning to our God
In community we can turn to God and away from the sins, addictions, and fears that grip us. In Christ, recovery is real.
’Yet even now,’ declares the Lord, ‘return to Me with all your heart…’ (Joel 2:12)
Everybody wants to be valued and loved; and in our church services, small groups, meals together, and other gatherings, we’re building the relationships and friendships that we long for.
That you love one another, just as I have loved you. (John 13:34)
Sharing the Good News
As a church, we’re called to run an urgent rescue operation, to share the good news of salvation in Jesus to those who are lost.
Proclaiming the good news and healing people everywhere.
Reaching the Nations
We pray for, support, and participate in God’s work in the nations, in countries like Mexico, Nepal, and others.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations. (Matthew 28:19)
Living Empowered Lives
We seek to cultivate naturally supernatural lives where we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to prophesy, heal the sick, cast out demons, and perform miracles.
By the power of signs and wonders, through the power of the Spirit of God. (Romans 15:19)
We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, inerrant, and authoritative word of God.
We believe in the full deity and full humanity of Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth; in His sinless life; in His miracles; in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential, and that accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into a relationship with God.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. We further believe His power and gifts are available to believers today.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: those who are saved will be resurrected unto eternal life with God, and those who are lost unto eternal separation from Him.
We believe it is important to uphold the scriptural practices of the early church. Therefore, we hold to the practice of water baptism and the regular taking of communion. We do not believe that either of these practices is essential for salvation, but that they serve as a demonstration of our living in faith in Christ.
