Helping People Connect Back to the Church

There are so many people who believe in God but have given up on the church. Some did so because they were hurt, some because rules were enforced without the Spirit of the rules, while others were just plain disinterested. There are over 96,000 people in our region that don’t go to anyone’s church. The most surprising thing I have found through 13 years of ministry is that most actually believe in God. Though they believe in God they just aren’t into church. What are we going to do to reach the masses that are just not going to go to a “regular church”?

Let me say it again in a way that everyone will understand: HOW ARE WE GONNA REACH YOUR FAMILY MEMBER WHO ISN’T INTO CHURCH?!? YOUR CHILD, SISTER, DAD? YOUR BOSS? YOUR WORK ASSOCIATE? WHAT ABOUT YOUR TEENAGERS WHO ARE NOT INTERESTED IN THE THINGS OF GOD?!?! I know you care… what’s your solution?

Sometimes Vertical Church is misunderstood. Vertical Church is not a reaction to regular church, it’s an action to reach people who aren’t going to come. It’s not THE solution, but it is A solution. We do what we do the way that we do because we unashamedly want to help people who don’t like church meet God. You see, I’ve met people who don’t feel like they fit in at church…

  • Like a new friend, we’ll call him “Steve”. Steve is a single parent and isn’t a local. He has been raising his child on his own and has been pretty down on his luck. Steve wasn’t a christian but someone invited him to Vertical and from the very 1st weekend he LOVED it! The next week he was back with a friend. After  checking us out for about a month we had a conversation in which he received Jesus into his life. God is changing Steve’s life and the life of his child! Steve was not interested in church prior to VC.
  • Another dude we’ll call “Don”. Don was raised in a legalistic, religious home and went to a very judgmental church that drove him away as a teen. Don went his own way, lived a ROUGH life and had ALL the scars to prove it. A few years after a tragic time he met Jesus but never felt like he fit into church until one day a Vertical attendee invited him to check us out. This Vertical attendee kNEW that “Don” would indeed be accepted at Vertical (I am SO THANKFUL that our people know they can invite their friends and we’ll love them where they are). So Don attended and loved it… Jesus is at work!
  • Or my friend “Lorraine”. Lorraine never felt she fit in at church. She believed in God – she just didn’t fit in and was ready to give up. She quit attending but prayed that God would send her to a church where she could freely worship Him apart from all the other ‘church’ stuff. She was led to Vertical where God is doing a work – drawing her closer and closer to Him and ultimately using her to bring others to know Him.

These are 3 REAL PEOPLE who are attending Vertical. They weren’t interested in church but they were interested in learning about God. The names have been changed but the truth remains the same: People need to be loved. People need to find acceptance. People need to know that the church, the Body of Jesus Christ, is there FOR them and to meet them right where they are at. Most of the time the church is known for what we are AGAINST. This Sunday at Bladen Community College we intend to help people who don’t normally do church see all that the church is FOR: FOR the glory of God, FOR familes, FOR kidz and marriages, FOR our cities and towns, FOR people meeting Jesus. People far from God know that they are flawed. So are we. In our gathering may we give them the hope that they are so desperately seeking.

We are FOR helping people connect back to God’s church, whatever that might take. This weekend we begin a journey of joining all of the like-minded, Gospel preaching churches of Bladen County to help the 19K who don’t attend anyone’s church meet Jesus.

Got something to say? Go for it!
