This is the “WHY?” Behind Vertical

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 16 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 thought hits all of us: 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 her “Georgia”. Georgia is a twenty-something and was raised in a very legalistic, religious environment where church and very strict teaching was a daily constant. Not only did she feel she couldn’t live up to the expectations of her church, she felt that God was ashamed of her – so she avoided God. Eventually she ran from God so hard that she “hated Him”. Her father began attending Vertical Church and began to pray that God would use this church to draw his wayward daughter back. “Georgia” did begin to attend under her father’s insistence and week-by-week the coldness of her heart towards God began melting. She soon met Jesus. Before Vertical, “Georgia” didn’t care if she EVER attended a church again.
  • Another person, we’ll call “Anthony”. Anthony was raised in a very religious home. He believed in God, and even gave his heart to Jesus as a young man. But the world caught Anthony and he began to rebel against everything that his parents had placed in him. Anthony ran from God as well. After years away from God which included crime, homelessness and drug addiction, Anthony came to Vertical to try to save his marriage. He didn’t expect to be moved as he was only attending to appease his unhappy wife. Little did he know that God was about to change his life dramatically. Today, Anthony is impacting people for the Gospel everywhere he goes.
  • Or my friend “Carrie”. Carrie didn’t really have much church background – she never really “got” church. She believed in God – she just didn’t see the need. After hearing about VC many times she decided to try it out. Seeing her one day she gushed, “I have NEVER been to a church that I can’t wait for next Sunday!” (BTW… so thankful to hear that SO much!) God is working in her life and she is drawing ever closer. I believe before long she will surrender her heart to Jesus.

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 – we want to show people who don’t normally do church see all that the church is FOR: FOR the glory of God, FOR families, 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 is the “WHY?” behind Vertical.

NOTE: Our Next Vertical University INTEREST MEETING will take place on Sunday, May 3rd at 6pm – BCM House (across from Givens Performing Arts Center in Pembroke).
