Bishop Gary Mueller of the Arkansas Conference of the United Methodist Church has appointed Jeff Jackson to Northwest Arkansas to start a new faith community called The Vine of NWA effective July 1, 2019.

The Vine of NWA is anticipated to serve as an engaging, multiplying model community that reaches out to people in fresh, new ways. The Vine of NWA will incorporate unique opportunities for worship both inside and outside the church.

“I am excited about new ministry opportunities in the NW District. The Centerton area is at the epicenter of growth in Arkansas and we want to be a vital partner of the growing ministry opportunities,” shared Stephen Coburn, NW District Strategist/Superintendent.

Bishop Mueller stated, “We are thrilled to continue the utilization of Jeff’s calling for building new communities for Christ. Reaching, growing and multiplying are the common denominators for The Vine of NWA. We are truly full of excitement for this opportunity to make new disciples who will make even more disciples for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.”
