Why a new church?

“...if the entire population of more than three hundred million Americans wanted to go to an established church, including those that meet in storefronts, rented school facilities, and the like, more than half would be turned away, even if every church held three weekend services.”

-Ed Stetzer – President LifeWay Research

There is still a need...

The population within a 30 mile radius of Vertical Church is roughly 990,000. 54% are decidedly un-churched.



Will you prayerfully consider how you can partner with us to launch Vertical Church? We are raising $100,000 to launch on January, 12 2014. Your generosity will effect lives in our local community but also in the Philippines as $2000 of our launch budget will go to Souls for Christ ministries to aid in rebuilding churches destroyed by the November Typhoon.


We are seeking to raise our first year operating budget of $180,000. These funds will resource things like outreaches, children’s ministries, rent, and salaries. You can make a one-time pledge or continue to give throughout the year.
