Sunday Nite (April 21)

Sometimes I just have to pinch myself!

Every Sunday nite is a tired Sunday Nite. Most are rewarding Sunday Nites. And some, like today, are just stinkin’ special.

God moved at both Vertical locations today in a very special way. I REALLY hope that you were with us. If you weren’t, here’s what you missed:

  •  Week 3 of FAQ. Today we answered “What does the Bible say about Ghosts/Spirits/haunting”, “Is it sin for Christians to drink Alcohol” and “Can a person lose their salvation”? Tough stuff this week. 
  • I am so thankful for God’s Word, His grace towards us, His mercy shown to us and for the opportunity to bring understanding into people’s lives. 
  • This series has been SO CHALLENGING. It is so hard to KNOW that you are all up in the middle of people’s lives, beliefs and challenges. We will ALWAYS stand on God’s perfect Word which is without flaw or error. Once again, so thankful for that Word.
  • Multiple people gave their lives to Jesus today at Lumberton. God, WHY DO YOU LET US EXPERIENCE SUCH BLESSING?!?
  • Those of you who introduced me to your guests at Lumberton today – HI FIVE!!!
  • at Lumberton

    Vertical Worship at Lumberton killing it today. Rhonda led worship along with Jon on acoustic, Gary Floyd on bass, Andrew on drums and Robby on lead.

  • Vertical Bladen had a new set up today!! We actually used their stage and had our biggest adult day yet!!!
  • Baptism Day at Vertical Bladen was an absolutely incredible experience. 5 baptisms today at Bladen.
  • I love seeing how Vertical Bladen is learning the Vertical culture. Every week they sing louder and louder – every week they are learning me and that when you come to Vertical you gotta talk to the people.
  • I am so enjoying meeting all of these new people. I love the conversations we are having. I LOVE seeing what God is doing in so many lives.
  • We saw 6 people give their lives to Jesus through salvation this morning at Bladen. We saw BUNCHES more make decisions towards Jesus.

at Bladen

  • Vertical Worship at Bladen had Alison and Justin leading worship along with Karla-Beth on vocals, Josh on lead guitar, John A on acoustic, Christoph on bass and Ethan on drums. They were smokin’

Here’s what other said online about today:

  • Sandy: The word was fierce, the music was moving, and the hearts were open today at Vertical!!! I have learned so much from this great group of people! If someone is looking for a church or you feel like you need Jesus in your life, bring yourself and your family to Vertical. My family comes home each Sunday filled with joy from the service. #blessed
  • Amber: Vertical was awesome as always! Already pumped for next week.
  • Nicole: Got baptized today & i couldn’t be more happy! God is good ❤
  • Leisa: As a Mom…today at Vertical Church is gonna be amazing…cause my Awesome Aaron is being baptized…God has always taken care of me and my sons and provided our every need…I thank him so much for never leaving my side…Lifechanges being made…I am so blessed…wish my family in heaven is seeing this today cause my strength comes frm them…n I believe they will be celebrating with us today!!!!! God is good…All the time…so as for me and my house…we praise you!!!
  • John: so blessed to get to see God using Vertical Church in Lumberton and Bladen each week, it really just never gets old.
  • Morgan: All I know is Vertical Bladen was on FIRE today!! Very humbling to see my peers being baptized & witnessing the powerful work of God in the lives of His people! I love it!
  • Nikki: All I can am think right now is wow. Look at how far God has let us come and just think about how far He is going to take us. So proud of my Vertical Family. :)
  • Santana: God showed up & showed out @ Vertical this morning! I confessed publicly that Jesus is my King! One of the best feelings I have ever God be the Glory! God is doing amazing things in Bladen so glad that my son & I are apart of that!
  • On Saturday we had a vTeam party at Camp Grace. We played, we partied, we ate (of course – grin), we competed, we worshiped, we sang, we prayed, and we enjoyed each others presence. You haven’t worshiped until you have sung with this rowdy bunch!
  • We were blessed to have my friend Jeff Kapusta (@jeffkapusta), Lead Pastor of Lifepoint Church in Wilmington in to speak at the vTeam party. The message that he brought to our team was so spot on… God-led. God is using Jeff greatly in Wilmington. God is using him greatly in my life also. Thankful to call him friend.
  • BTW… Jeff loved our vTeams. He could tell that God is doing something great at VC by your passion.
  • I did something at the party I have never done at Vertical Church – I led a complete worship set. I didn’t have to sing much as the crowd was leading. Unbelievable.
  • SHOUTOUT TO VERTICAL CONNECTIONS PASTOR JOHN PAUL (and McGee) Deaver for bringing this party together. It was AWESOME and a perfect evening.! Just another reason to be a vTeam member.
  • Looking very forward to speaking at the Robeson Baptist Association Semi-Annual meeting. I am thankful for the opportunity to share what God is doing in our midst, our churches and throughout our region. Thankful for pastors who love Jesus  and for their partnership in the Gospel. (John 13:34-35)
I cannot wait for you all to see the baptism videos. We will try to get them up this week. I love you all – so thankful for what God is doing in our midst. May we NEVER take this for granted friends.

Vertical Stories Two – April 2013

Hope you caught yesterday’s stories! Here are more:



Vertical Stories – April 2013

God is working in people’s lives at Vertical. We like to share their stories.

More coming tomorrow!



Sunday Nite (April 14, 2013)

FAQ Week 2 is in the books. Incredible day filled with worship, tension, questions, conviction, understanding and most importantly:


Wouldn’t it be terrible to go to church and hear that you and your life is in violation of God’s expectations and NOT HAVE someone to tell us how God can fix us and give us steps to do so?

I had the opportunity to preach at and experience both Vertical Locations yesterday. I hope that you were with us – if you weren’t here’s what you missed:

  • On Week 2 of FAQ we explored shacking up, gambling and why God allows bad things to happen to good people.
  • This week Donnie had the opportunity to put ME on the hot seat (revenge?). His questions for me: Paying taxes; Does God promise He won’t place more on me than I can handle; Why do some people raise their hands during songs; Is interracial marriage  prohibited in the Bible and is it ok to fantasize about your spouse?

    Will post tomorrow.

  • This was not an easy message to deliver.  But it’s like I said LIVE in both services, please understand that we are FOR you. If you have issues in any of the subjects we are dealing with we want to help you to take your next step with Jesus.

My man DK Lemmons ( had some great summaries of my message so the following are his quotes:

  •  Is gambling a sin? Bible doesn’t significantly prohibits. It’s not the game, but the manner in which we play it.
  • Why do we raise hands? Psalms 63:4 calls for us to raise our hands in praise!!
  • Interracial marriage? Most take Deut. out of context. It talks about interbelief not race. It is our duty not to chase after foreign gods.
  • Bad things 2 good people? No magical answer, God is God and we are not. Misunderstanding that God will keep bad things from happening.
  • Bible never said life will be easy after salvation. John 16:33- u will have hardship, but Christ has overcome the world! Ex: Book of Job
  • Why Bad things happen? 1.) Sin. 2.) God tests us. 3.) Satan (destroyer). 4.) Free Will. Our choice a against God.
  • God is always just, and sovereign!! He is not always fair. If he did, he would treat us as our sins deserve. How great is His love for us!!
Great notes DK!
  • I believe that the Cohabitation Ceremony video was a hit. I know people were cracking up at both locations where i was LIVE. Shoutout to Sam and Beth Powers for being great sports and playing our couple having the Shacking Up Ceremony. Yes, they are married. And yes, Beth is pregnant.

    The Video Shoot

  • Yes, she was pregnant previous to the shooting of this video (grin)
  • I certainly hope that people saw our heart in that…. we love people and are FOR them. We want to help them take the next step with Jesus.
  • Vertical Worship was great at Lumberton!!! Jon Lloyd leading with Gail, Christoph and Ethan on drums. Today was Gary Floyd’s 1st time on guitar for us at VC (he has played bass before). Gary is one of my favorite local guitarists from back in the day, possibly the best in the area!!! We played together back when I was 18… it is SO INCREDIBLE to see people I once played with and grew up learning music from using that talent to bring glory to Jesus.!!!

    Jon, Gail and Gary

  • Lumberton’s cafe environment is incredible for this series! I will try to get a picture for next week! I love our creative people at Vertical Church.
  • Lumberton VIP was rockin’ yesterday!!! They make Vertical, “vertical”.
  • When I walked into Vertical Bladen for the 1st time since launch day to preach at the 11am service i wanted to cry. No kidding! Some of our staff and leaders over there have been with us since day 1 of Vertical and I miss them so. We discussed this after the service. We understand that God wanted us to do this, and agree that it is totally worth it. But it doesn’t take away the fact that you miss seeing those people every day.
  • BTW… Vertical Bladen knocking it out of the park! Parking team was awesome driving up, VIP team, blowing it out, check in, cafe!!! Production and audio had it going on and the stage looked absolutely incredible.
  • Great crowd at BCC. You can tell that we are all getting to know each other over there. It really is just like when we started the 1st time in Lumberton. I predict that starting THIS COMING WEEKEND things are going to another level. 1st Baptism service at Vertical Bladen. I think i heard 7 people currently scheduled to be baptized. It’s ON baby!!!

    me at BCC – 11am service

  • Vertical Worship Bladen was on fire!!! Alison lead worship along with Amber Davis (1st time i believe), Josh on guitar, John A on acoustic, Robby Gaddy on bass (bass?!?) and Andrew on drums.
  • The music was en fuego at both locations: The Time has Come, Never Once and one of my all time favorites, “Always”. Lumberton threw in another favorite of mine, “The Anthem” right before my message.
  • Thankful to Vertical Worship Director Rhonda Lovin for the way that she brings it all together with the team! I can’t imagine how hard it is to schedule 2 locations to the level we do. WOW!!! And you thought she was just a great singer (grin).

    Tonight we had VERGE at Candy Sue’s Downtown. VERGE is our partnership class and the only way a person can join Vertical Church. We do VERGE approximately 3 times per year. Congratulations to our new Vertical Partners.

  • We will be doing a Bladen County VERGE on May 19th! You can sign up to attend Bladen VERGE right here.
  • So excited for our Church Plant, FuZion Church Raeford, as they had an incredible day yesterday!!!

Our First Vertical Bladen Baptisms…

…are right around the corner.

One of my favorite things about Vertical Church is the way that we do baptisms. The stories – they are so real and raw… real people having a real experience with a real God Who is changing their lives. Your next opportunity to be baptized is Sunday, April 21st.

So my question to you is have you been baptized SINCE you believed? Baptism is the 1st step as a new believer! It’s a person saying to the world, “Yes!! I Believe that Jesus Christ has saved me and is changing my heart and life!” If you’ve not been baptized SINCE you believed and would like to be scheduled for baptism or would like more information let us know HERE
