Faculty and Staff

Our Principal

Mr. Wilkinson obtained a degree from California State University Long Beach, and went on to study abroad and do his student teaching at Gwent College of Higher Education in Wales, UK. After completion of this, he obtained his California Teaching Credential from CSULB. Jim has served as a mentor teacher for both CSULB and CSUF. During his 17 years as a teacher in the Public School System, he was awarded the Golden Bell Award from the State of California, in recognition of developing an innovative Physical Education Program. Jim has also worked for the Commission of Teacher Credentialing, reviewing various Universities’ Student Teacher Programs.

He first came to the Vineyard Church nearly 30 years ago, and served as a Youth Pastor at Vineyard Newport Beach, before coming to Vineyard Church of Anaheim. Although Jim was enjoying a very successful career in Public School Education, it was during those early years here that God revealed a new opportunity to him. In 1999 Jim became the Pastor/Principal of Vineyard Christian School.

Jim and his wife Ingrid, who has also been a teacher for 25 years, have been married for 33 years and have two beautiful children. Their son Tully, 24 years old, who has been married to his wife Steffany since 2012, serves as a Worship Pastor for a prominent Church here in Orange County. Their daughter Nicola, who is 22, has served with YWAM Perth Australia for the past 2 years; serving and working with youth on the margins in the Philippines, Nepal, Kolkata, India, and in the outback regions of Australia working with Aboriginal youth.


Vineyard Christian School’s teachers are first and foremost, believers in and followers of Jesus Christ! They are active members of a Bible-based church, view their work with students and families as their calling, and believe that they are here to serve at the will of their Heavenly Father! In addition, each Elementary and Middle School teacher is credentialed and has at least a bachelor’s degree in Education, which coupled with years of experience, offers students the optimum opportunity to be successful learners. Our Preschool teachers meet or exceed the qualifications set forth by California’s Title 22 requirements for Early Childhood Educators, with many of them having obtained their Associates or Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development.
