In the second episode of The Vineyardists podcast, we had some amazing guests: Rose Swetman, Kyla Morgan, and Dawn Geraty (bios below). We discussed the recent Northwest Regional Conference, our local churches (and what's been happening in them), and ended with a great conversation about women in leadership.
Amanda Nash, Steve Sjogren, the Cincinatti Vineyard, Red Bluff Vineyard, Duluth Vineyard, and the Lexington Vineyard. With extreme shoutout and respect to Jed and Kim Johnson of Wide Awake.
Rose Swetman and her husband, Rich, co-founded The Practicing Church in Shoreline, Washington. She is the founder of Turning Point, a missional group that partners with local agencies to serve low-income families in the greater Seattle area. She is the Regional Leader in the Northwest Region of Vineyard USA. Rose obtained her Doctor of Ministry from Bakke Graduate University in Seattle, Washington focused on Transformational Leadership for the Global City. She currently is an adjunct professor at The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. Rose and Rich have a blended family of 8 children, spouses and over 22 grandchildren.
Kyla Morgan is a doctoral candidate at Princeton University in the department of history. She has served on church staffs in Ohio, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania and is currently a part of a church planting team in Princeton, NJ.
Dawn Geraty is the co-lead pastor of the Red Bluff Vineyard and involved in numerous aspects of local church ministry. She and her husband have five children, one amazing dog, and a leopard gecko. Dawn, most of all, loves Jesus and is one of the kindest human beings alive.
