Today’s Himalayan Region Vineyard churches are a product of providential and practical events. Providentially, God had his hand on the intersecting paths of people and events. In the mid 1990s, David Ruis (then pastor of Winnipeg Centre Vineyard) and Noel Isaacs (a fourth generation believer from the Darjeeling area of India) connected and immediately shared a vision for worship music, justice, and compassion becoming foundational values for the Kingdom mission. In early conferences in the region, passionate worship and ministry to the least attracted many who searched for a new paradigm of values in their evangelistic mission to the Nepali people.
