VERTICAL CHURCH IS PREPARING FOR LAUNCH, CONSIDER JOINING US.
Our next meeting is on Saturday, February 25th from 5-6:30pm.
The Core Group is a team of committed, compelled, contagious, and courageous Christians joined together in laying the groundwork for a new Vertical Church to glorify God by making disciples.

 
 
Why Vertical?

“The problem in the church today is that we treat God's glory as a by-product and the missional activities of the church as the primary thing when the opposite is what Scripture demands. We don't proclaim the gospel and feed the poor and shepherd the flock in hopes that God's glory will be the by-product of those activities. We seek the revealing of the glory of God through the methods He prescribes so that His glory is revealed in the church. When that happens, the lost are converted, the poor are fed, the saints live in unity, and much more, all as by-products of God's manifest presence in the church.”

― James MacDonald, Vertical Church: What Every Heart Longs for. What Every Church Can Be.

 
Core Group FAQs

WHAT CAN I EXPECT IF I JOIN THE CORE GROUP?

Expect high-level commitment and growing in your faith. Vertical Church is committed to a quality of discipleship much more than a quantity of disciples. You will be challenged to walk with Christ more closely and work hard to serve him in building his church. We will be meeting weekly to dig into the Bible and prayer as we prepare for the launch of the new church plant.

HOW DO I JOIN THE CORE GROUP?

  • First, contact the Pastor and attend a vision meeting to learn more.
  • Pray about it. This is exciting work, but it is hard, committed work.
  • If you believe God is calling you to join our core group, let us know by contacting us.

WHAT ARE THE EXPECTATIONS OF A CORE GROUP MEMBER?

Each core group member commits to five things:

  1. Make a healthy church transition.
  2. Grow the core group by inviting others to join.
  3. Sacrifice personal preferences for the good of the church.
  4. Realize spiritual warfare will come – and pray fervently!
  5. Financially support the ministries at Vertical Church.
