Ted has enjoyed 32 years of pastoral ministry in four churches from Pennsylvania to Virginia. His passions are teaching the Word, mentoring men, pastoral counseling, and hospitality evangelism. Currently on the pastoral staff at Pillar Church in Stafford, VA, Ted counsels men with life-dominating issues and strengthens marriages that face the unique pressures of being in the military. Ted and Genean have recently been catalysts for ministry to Afghan refugees in the Stafford area.
While in college, Ted was saved and transformed through the Good News of Christ. He worked in the communications and insurance industries for 10 years before pursuing his MDiv from Westminster Seminary in Escondido, CA. Originally from Southern California, Ted and Genean have been married for 43 years and have three adult daughters. Along with Genean’s 97-year-old mom, the Vinatieris enjoy Kingdom serving through an open home. They’ve had the privilege of hosting or housing hundreds of people. Some of the stories are just sheer smiles!
