Episode 1 - Why Vertical?

July 10, 2017
 
Why do have we dedicated an entire podcast towards Vertical Ministry? Because church was never meant to be safe or comfortable or predictable. Church without God accomplishes nothing. When a church goes Vertical it changes everything. A Vertical relationship with God is what every heart longs for and Vertical Ministry is what every church should be. So jump into Episode One where we unpack the concept of Vertical Church with Pastor James MacDonald and Ed Stetzer.
