What are Small Groups?

Small groups are the best place to connect at Vertical Church if you want to grow in your relationship with Jesus. Our small groups are designed to help you develop significant relationships with others who can encourage and challenge you to consistently apply the truths of God’s Word to each area of your life. 

Small groups are not “another thing” at Vertical Church; they are the main channel for discipleship and care for each person who is a part of the Vertical Church family. 

Overview of Small Groups:

Each small group meets three to four times each month and is led by a trained Small group Leader. Group meetings are normally two hours and include time for Bible discussion---walking back through the sermon, accountability, and prayer. They also include informal times to build relationships with others in the group. 

God wants every follower of Jesus to be continually growing as we worship Christ, walk with Christ, work for Christ, and witness for Christ. Each Vertical Church Small group is committed to both Mutual Ministry and Multiplication. 

Mutual Ministry means that each member of the group is looking for ways to minister to the other members of the group. All groups should also be prayerfully considering a way to extend the ministry of their Small group through Multiplication. 

Multiplication means eventually forming two or more groups so that others who are not yet in Small groups can continue to find places to connect with a Small group.
