Our Sunday services are exciting, casual and relaxed. Each week, come and experience a warm welcome, engaging music, and a practical message from one of our pastors. There's no dress code, because Vertical isn’t about what you wear or how you look; Vertical is about life change.
If you’re visiting for the first time, we won’t embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for a while – and we understand. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.
Philip is our Lead Pastor and oversees the mission and vision of Vertical Church. He is a co-founder of Vertical Church and has been here from the beginning. Philip teaches on Sundays, is passionate about global missions, church planting, and investing in his community as a volunteer soccer coach for a local high school. He and his wife Lori live in the Madison area and have three kids Brice, Shelby, and Eli.
Kids + Families
Each week we welcome kids from infants all the way through the fifth grade. We offer separate, safe, clean, fun and age appropriate environments for nursery, preschool and elementary as well as trustworthy kids volunteers who have cleared background checks.
At Vertical we use a fast, simple and secure check-in system called Planning Center Check-Ins to ensure the proper safety and care of your children. At check-in you will receive a printed name label for each child, as well as a matching security label for a secure checkout. If it’s your first visit with us, please arrive a few minutes early so we can help you properly check-in your kids. After your first visit, Vertical Kids check-in will be quick and easy.
At Vertical we love our role of coming alongside students' spiritual journeys in our student ministry, Amplify. We try to engage their head, heart and hands so that they grow to love Jesus with all of their mind, heart and strength.
Amplify meets every Wednesday night from 6:30-8PM at Vertical.
The last Wednesday night of each month is Vibe Night, an offsite event with games, food, and giveaways. Vibe Night is from 6:30-8PM and the locations can be found through our social media and Amplify newsletter.
