Alex Ackermann grew up in a liturgical church, but gave his life to Jesus at the age of 18, at a time of great searching and release from stress and anxiety. Since that time, he has dedicated himself to receiving the goodness of God, and passing it on to others. He married his wife, Donna, in 1985 and they have five beautiful children.

He loves to teach the Bible expositionally. In February 2020, he and Donna moved to Longmont Colorado, to start the Vineyard Longmont. Their desire is to bring a worshiping community to the area to bring freedom, healing and salvation for many.

Donna was born in Colorado Springs at Fort Carson… an “army brat”.   Her dad, who grew up on a farm in Illinois, had met and married her mother who is from Panama.  Donna graduated from Widefield HS.  While attending CSU-Ft Collins, she gave her life to the Lord at an evangelistic concert, and joined the group “MasterPeace”,  There she met her husband,  Alex Ackermann and was a part of her first Vineyard church. She has a Broadcast Journalism degree, is a graduate of the Vineyard School of Ministry, and was recently ordained as a Pastor.

Donna has been married for 35 years to her best friend Alex and together they have raised five talented, adult children.  Feeling the call of God for full-time ministry they have started several new ministries; a college drama & vocal ministry at CU Boulder, the Youth ministry in Boulder & Colorado Springs, and then planted a Vineyard church in Pueblo.  Donna was on staff  at the Vineyard Canon City for 10 years, most recently as the Admin Pastor.  Earlier in 2020, the Ackermanns were sent out by VCC to plant the Vineyard Longmont.

Donna loves cooking but mainly international food, studying Spanish, French and German, raising sustainable fruit trees & vegetable/herb gardens and spending time with her big extended family.
