First Ever VIDEO Update

We would like to introduce you to Karen. Karen is auditioning to be the Vertical Spokes-model – let us know what you think about her.




It's still not too late to be part of this weekend's "VERB" activities – email Joey to sign up.

They Don’t Care!

Can I be honest with you? For most of the people that God has placed us in this region to reach with His message, CHURCH isn't even on their radar. 

"They" don't care that we're starting a church. (ouch, that seriously stings!). They aren't sitting around thinking, "man, i wish someone would start a church that is geared towards people who don't like church". Reaching people who don't know God is… wow.

Support-raise-handOne of the biggest hurdles in starting a church that has a goal of helping people who don't like church meet God is making those people who don't like church aware of who you are and what you're doing – which is hard because as I said earlier, they don't care.  All of my Christian readers, by a show of hands, how many conversations about church/Jesus do you have daily with people who don't like church? 

See what I mean?

With this in mind, we are preparing to begin what I will title an awareness campaign. In other words WE (all of the people calling Vertical home) are going to begin praying for opportunities to share the story of Vertical Church with people who don't go to church. We are preparing tools to do this but here is the 1st of a few:

The goal of this awareness campaign is trying to help people "who don't like church meet God" – people for whom their dislike (or dis-interest) of the church is keeping them from going further relationally with God. All we are doing is asking God to use us to tear down walls with the thousands of whom this is an issue. We are trying to share truth, community and need with people despite their opinions and pre-conceived notions. Ultimately we want to "lead people to be passionate about Jesus so they can lead others to Jesus". "What about sharing the story of Jesus?" We will – every chance we get as the Spirit leads. May we never forget that everything that we do as a church is to play our part in God's plan for our region:

"How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" (Romans 10:14,15 NIV)

That above scripture is referring to you. May God use the people of Vertical to bring great joy to our region.

Why Do You Have Such a Weird Name?

A question that has been frequently asked since we began Vertical is "Where did we get our name and what does it mean?" After all, the name "Vertical Church" is not a normal church name. Maybe the best way to answer your question is for you to look at our logo:

Arrowandcircle  
Life sends us in a continual circular motion, forcing us to go around and around as we sort through the clutter of a fallen world.  It is only when we look VERTICALLY to God and give our entire life to Him that we can break through the circle and be in the center of God's will.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's not just a cool name and a cool logo – it's our mission – a church that wants to help people who don't like church meet God. 

So now you know.

Why I Want 100 People to go Here!

Unleash2011header
 
The Unleash Conference at Newspring Church is a One Day Conference designed to challenge, encourage and equip local church leaders. I have been to every Unleash Conference and have left so inspired to allow God to use me to make a difference in our region. Without a Newspring there wouldn't be a Vertical.

So here's the deal: The conference is on March 10th and we want EVERY VERTICAL LEADER to join us for this trip – my goal is 100 people!! Why 100? Because besides the powerful worship and 2 great messages by Perry, there will also be 2 break-out session for your ministry that will show you how Newspring does what you do at Vertical. God has used this conference (this church, and particularly Perry) in my life. Watch the video below:


 

 

Why am I mentioning a March conference on October 19th? Because early bird registration is only $39 a person until November and I know most of you can swing that if you will register right now? (registration is here). Honestly, I wish that we could just buy everyone's tickets but there is no way we can swing that – WILL YOU MAKE AN INVESTMENT INTO YOUR MINISTRY AT VERTICAL? 

PS… let me know after you have registered!

Vertical “Verbers” – Week One

What an amazing weekend we had!

 

This weekend was the first week of our "Love is a Verb" initiative. Love is not something you feel, it’s something you do. We believe that the best way to reach into our community is by finding ways to meet needs within our community by participating in community gatherings. We believe God has called us to our community – not our community to us.

We began this work on Friday Night in target community One, Bladenboro, by cleaning up after the West Bladen football game. We had a great crowd show up to take part in that – we loved some people, cleaned bleachers, had great conversations and even changed a flat tire for a young mother in the parking lot.


On Saturday we moved "Verb" to Fairmont to take part in the Fairmont Farmers Festival. About a month ago a Vertical Partner had asked the mayor of the city if we could clean up for them after it was over – HE WAS SPEECHLESS because their budget wasn't allowing them to pay for clean up – we offered to meet a need we didn't even know they had and it was exactly what they needed. It was awesome (and it was TRASHED). Honestly, I was so proud to watch our people do such a nasty job in Jesus Name. We had many conversations, knocked out an imposing job in 1 hour, dreamed of ideas of how to be even more effective in situations like this and we loved on this community with our actions, not just our words.

The most exciting thing about Vertical Church and what we're becoming is WHO God has put on our team – a group of the most selfless and giving servant-hearted people.

This coming weekend "Verb" moves into Lumberton. Friday Night we will serve at the Lumberton Football game (concessions/clean-up after the game) and then on Saturday we will handle parking for Chevy to the Levy (We need about 15 people to park cars – let me know if you're down). Anybody who is interested in serving anywhere or talking to someone about Vertical Church can do so by filling out the form here
