Thor Colberg – Lead Pastor

Thor was born in New Haven, CT, and Bonnie was born in Charleston, SC. Thus ended the War Between the States.

Thor accepted the challenge of following Jesus while at Furman University through the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. After graduation, he went on to complete a Masters of Divinity at Emory University, and became a United Methodist Pastor. That same year after two dates, he asked Bonnie to marry him. They then spent the next 13 years in the Methodist church.

In 1987, God called Thor, Bonnie and their three kids to plant a Vineyard in Augusta, GA, which started in their home with a handful of people. Over the next 16 years the church grew to over 750 people and planted five churches.

In 2003, Thor and Bonnie felt like the Lord said, “Do it again!” They turned the Augusta Vineyard over to their Executive Pastor and launched out to Charlotte. Worship Celebrations began in January 2004. Many wonderful people have joined in and the Vineyard North Charlotte has already planted two churches: Charleston, SC, and Palm Spring, FL.  On the international stage we have planted 5 Vineyard’s in Ukraine, along with 80 plus churches in Ethiopia and South Sudan.

Thor is also on staff with Global Training Network which is impacting thousands in Africa and Eastern Europe.



Anything fun! Thor works out just about every day either swimming, running, weights or spin class. Currently, he is taking Mua Thai lessons.  He and Bonnie love spending time with their grandkids – all ten of them. He also loves good food and great fellowship. Thor loves to train and coach church planters and pastors.
