how we got here

In April of 2010, four pastors and their families, made the decision to leave their jobs to chase after a God-sized dream of launching a church that would help people who don't like church meet God. On February 6, 2011 that dream became a reality; Vertical Church was born. 

The story of Vertical is not the story of a good idea. It’s the story of a God idea. It’s the story of turning a vision into a reality. It’s the story of defining problems and offering solutions. It’s the story of repentance and faith, of forgiveness and freedom. It’s the story of failing forward. It’s the story of a perfect place for imperfect people.

The church has grown from just a banquet room of 20 people at the Holiday Inn, and we've seen God do something miraculous in our region. We're seeing lives being changed, marriages restored, addictions broken, and lots of daily growth along the way. Our vision is a GOD-SIZED vision and we believe that our God can do anything and that He wants to see those who are far from Him filled with life in Christ. Vertical is a diverse community of people coming from all over our region to worship God and experience His power and presence through worship and a Biblical message.

We invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple and people are free to go after God with passion! It is our prayer that you would join us at 1 of our 3 locations and experience this phenomenal movement of God. Tis a place where God meets people who aren’t perfect, and no matter where you are on your personal spiritual journey, you are absolutely welcome here. 

weekend experience

Every weekend, you’ll experience a couple of things:

+ A dynamic worship experience   + A casual atmosphere  

+ Refreshments + Great music + Live worship  

+ Relevant and practical teaching from the Bible  + A ministry that your kidz will love

  • vkidz

    vKIDZ is designed for kidz ages 6 weeks through 5th grade to come and experience the love of Jesus. We believe that children are not the church of tomorrow, but the church of today. We partner with parents to help kidz connect with God by building lasting relationships, being silly and having fun together, and connecting with them on their level.

  • fuze

    FUZE is the Student Ministry of Vertical Church. We are dedicated to providing a place for students (grades 6-12) to connect with God, with other students, and with leaders that are dedicated to seeing students grow closer to Jesus. Our mission is to lead students to become passionate about Jesus so that they will lead others to Jesus.

  • ECHO

    ECHO is the college ministry of Vertical Church. We aim to engage students' heart, to help students make their relationship with Christ more personal, and to equip students to live out their faith in practical ways. Our mission is to lead students to be passionate about Jesus so that they can lead others to Jesus. We believe the way to do this is through Jesus’s call of discipleship.

  • Vgroups

    vGroups are intentional gatherings of people which take information from Sunday morning messages or God's word and turn

    that into application for their daily lives, ultimately leading to a transformation of their heart to become more like Jesus. They are your key to developing connections with those who share your interests or those who are dealing with similar life issues. Following the examples in Acts 2:42 and Proverbs 27:17, vGroups are a place where you can share life, pray for one another, explore God’s word, and celebrate what God is doing. This is what we call doing life together.
