Under the Hood: Mile High Vineyard

Get a look under the hood of healthy Reproducing Churches.


In 2010 after a decade of being exclusively in Arvada, the Mile High Vineyard set out on a journey of multiplication, resulting in the planting of three other sites over five years, together functioning as a multisite church. But as we moved further through that journey we started to reimagine what it means for us to continue to be a church that multiplies for the sake of our city.

As we started this reimagining process, we went from being defined as ‘one church in multiple locations’ to what we describe as ‘a family of neighborhood churches’. We believe this transition helps to simplify our structure, giving each church location more local autonomy and enabling us to go further than we previously imagined, while remaining rooted in the conviction that we are better together than we are alone.

In practice this means that everything we do flows out of a foundation of friendship, where we are seeking to learn together, share resources and collaborate, with a renewed commitment of planting even more healthy reproducing churches.

By registering for this FREE Exponential Webinar, you gain access to our Online Community that offers four weekly church leader programs and additional free resources for your church multiplication journey.


A growing number of church leaders are longing for something more than just adding attendees to our services, programs to our churches, and begging week in and week out for volunteers. They long to see disciplemaking-based kingdom multiplication. They long to become Reproducing Churches. 

Exponential began wondering what it would look like to build a community of Reproducing Churches that cared more about WHO they were catapulting and sending forward than WHAT they were accumulating and leaving behind. That led to an inaugural list in 2019 of Outreach Magazine’s List 0f 100 Reproducing Churches. And that community continues to grow.

Exponential is a growing community of leaders committed to accelerating the multiplication of healthy, reproducing faith communities. We exist to equip movement makers – like you – with actionable principles, ideas and solutions.  With these webinars, you’ll get a chance to hear in more detail, what it takes to become a Level 4  Reproducing Church.

We are passionate about accelerating multiplication through movement makers!

“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
