Miguel Zayas (wife Mai)

Miguel Zayas is the new Senior Pastor of the Inverness Vineyard Church after a unanimous vote of the members who were in attendance at the official Membership Meeting on Sunday, July 30th. He received overwhelming recommendations from the Pastoral Search Team, the IVC Elders, the Church Leadership Council and our Founding Pastor. He had previously been serving as a Vineyard Pastor in Estonia for the last 15 years. He grew up in New York and served as a missionary with Vineyard churches. He is married to an Estonian named Mai whom he met at Bible College here in the U.S. They have 4 children ages 11 to 20. Their oldest daughter is in college in Oregon. And their oldest son stayed in Estonia to complete his senior year in high school. Their other 2 children are with them here in Birmingham. For those of you who missed Miguel's sermon when he was here on July 16th, here is the link to watch the video of his message.  You can hear and see more about him and his family in the message that he shared. Or better yet, just come this Sunday to hear him.
