Our Story

How it all started...

In February 2015, several families who had been forever changed by the ministries at  Harvest Bible Chapel Chattanooga were praying about planting a new life-giving church where people could experience the same intentional discipleship they had experienced. They wanted to be in the Southeast, near the coast, and in a growing area where a large percentage of the population did not follow Jesus. After considering several cities, they moved to Charleston to plant this  new, life-giving church. By God’s grace, we launched on January 10th, 2016.

Building a strong foundation...

Since our launch, we have been consumed with making disciples. We've seen some come to Christ for the first time,  followers of Christ grow in their walk with Christ, and everyone learning how  to make disciples for the glory of God.

Where we are headed...

We are a church planting church

We hope to one day plant Vertical Churches all over the Lowcountry and the Southeast. The ways we are serving do not terminate in the present but are equipping us for how God will have us multiply in the future.

We are reaching the unreached

We have partnered with global missions organizations for the purpose of church planting. We are also sharing the good news of Jesus in Charleston through sharing our faith, multiplying ministry and serving others with the love of Christ.

We are training the next generation

Vertical Kids is training the next generation not only to know the Bible but to believe Jesus and to follow Him and tell others about the Good News He delivers. Vertical Students will develop students to follow and share Christ for the rest of their lives.

We are training future leaders

Small groups apprentice future small group leaders, serving teams raise up new serving team leaders, men and women meet regularly for mutual encouragement, and everyone at Vertical Church is being equipped to love God and love others.
