Matthew Miller, Pastor of the Vineyard, has a heart to reach the lost and to positively impact the community through the love of Yeshua. Matthew and his wife of 15 years, Jessica, have three young children, two daughters and a son. Serious about God’s admonition to be one, they strive to serve the Lord as a team. Since early childhood, Matthew knew God had a call on his life to be a pastor. But for over a decade, starting in his teens, he ran from that call. During that time he found himself living a lifestyle of sin and death. He was involved in a lifestyle of drugs, alcohol, and violence which eventually led him to live on the streets of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Then Yeshua, by His grace, delivered him and filled him with The Holy Spirit. With a rekindled fire Matthew entered seminary, seeking the TRUTH!
For 7 years, he trained for ministry in an Assembly of God Seminary and church. During those years, the Lord had Matthew researching the Roots of the modern Christian Church. And then, in a defining moment, Matthew knew the specific call on his life: to restore the body of Christ to its Hebraic Foundation. In obedience to the Lord’s direction, and after several more years of tutelage, this time with a Messianic Rabbi, Matthew was ordained, and in 2010 he was given his assignment: start a congregation in Johnson City.
The Vineyard has a simple message. Jesus to the Lost and Come out of her My people to the elect of God trapped in the systems of religion.
Associate pastors Ken Fabbri and his wife of 24 years Sharon, are blessed with four adult children and one grandson. These seekers of TRUTH are a dynamic duo! Raised in a traditional Christian home, Ken’s been following Yeshua since he was twenty and Sharon converted from Catholicism to evangelical Christianity at age twenty.
For 18 years, they have served in youth ministry, missions, and benevolence. In the workplace, Ken is a commercial real-estate developer with Interstate Realty and Development, and his wife Sharon is an occupational therapist. They use the workplace as their primary mission field and impact lives on a daily basis with the love of Yeshua. At The Vineyard they oversee Mission outreach, are on the prayer team, teach the Wednesday night Teen class and also help with counseling individuals and
In 2008, while searching for deeper truth, Ken and Sharon discovered their Hebrew roots. Pastor Matthew’s teachings about the Sabbath and Biblical Feasts have deepened their understanding of Scripture, sharpening their vison through a Hebraic lens. Active with the fellowship since it was launched in the Miller home in 2010, Ken and Sharon continue to serve as an integral part of The Vineyard’s leadership team.
