Brown Line Vineyard

We all need help we can’t give ourselves.

How might faith in Jesus and community help you?


Our Vision

Faith with a healthy sense of humor and humility


Brown Line Vineyard (named for Chicago's Northside "L" train) doesn’t have all the answers. But we exist to help Chicagoans find deeper, fuller lives and connect with God -- especially those who have never fit well culturally in religious settings.

With a healthy sense of humor, we create space for people to experience for themselves the good God Jesus showed humanity. And with humility and an open mind, we engage our wider community by pursuing the compassion, justice, and personal growth work of Jesus.
