Do you long for purpose? Do you have dreams that you’re desperate to see unfold? Do you know who you really are? We live in a culture that values fairness over justice, consuming over creating, glamour over character, image over holiness, and entertainment over discernment. How do you keep swimming against such a strong tide?

As you step out from under your parents’ wings and start living life according to your own convictions, you have to determine what you stand for. We want to come alongside you to help you understand your purpose, solidify your identity as a man or woman of God, and pursue your dreams.

ECHO is the College ministry of Vertical Church, and is designed to engage your heart, help you make your relationship with Christ more personal, and equip you to live out your faith in practical ways.

Sunday AM


If you are a college student who's attending either our Lumberton, Bladen, or Pembroke Locations on a Sunday morning, you are invited to JOIN US in the Main Service. You'll love it! 


When we serve according to our strengths, the church is built up, the mission is advanced, and we are fulfilled.
Each Sunday Vertical Church is full of volunteers who love to serve! From running cameras in the Main Service, to playing with preschoolers in vKidz, to being a welcoming greeter at the front doors, there are LOTS of ways that YOU can SERVE and make a difference.  

  • vKidz
  • FUZE Students
  • Parking
  • Greeter
  • Cafe
  • Production
  • ... and more!
