Vine History Vine University was established in Los Angeles in 2004 by a group of American pastors and missionaries. Their vision was to promote the fulfillment of the Great Commission by building an evangelical community of learning and faith dedicated to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19). The founding president, Dr. Chong Moo Park, has led the work of translating the vision into an institution of graduate missiological education.
