We earnestly covet your prayers as we step out in faith to raise funds and build a core team in order to launch Vertical Church Milwaukee in 2018.  Here are some specific things you can join us in praying for:

People-  We cannot do this work alone, and need others to join us in Milwaukee. If you or someone you know are interested in learning more about how you can partner with us in this way please fill out the form on our contact page.

Pray for:

- God to be working in the hearts and lives of the people in Milwaukee softening their hearts to the gospel message
- The Lord to raise up a core team of God-honoring, community-building, believers who are passionate about the church to partner with us in this work.
- The families who will be moving with us to Milwaukee, that God will direct their decisions and provide for them in this season of transition.

Provision-   We've set the goal of raising $90,000 to cover the cost of building rental, signage and marketing expenses, equipment for launch, as well as the general operating expenses for the first year. Ultimately, this allows us to impact lives in Milwaukee with the hope of Christ. While we understand that raising this amount of money is a tremendous endeavor, we are confident that as God has continually directed us towards this great work, He will also provide what we need in order to accomplish it.

Pray for:

- God to provide a team of people who are willing to give generously to this great work that God has called us to.
- Our faith to increase as we trust God to provide this large sum of money.
- Us to raise above and beyond what is required, so that we can further our reach in Milwaukee.

Place- We want the presence of Vertical Milwaukee to be a blessing to other churches in the city and to be located in an area that is ripe for the gospel.

Pray for:

- Clear direction as to where Vertical Milwaukee can make the biggest impact for God’s Kingdom in this city.
- A space where our core team can meet together regularly.
- A building for Vertical Milwaukee to use weekly once we launch.

Presence- None of our efforts will be successful if we are trying to accomplish this on our own strength.  We desperately need to rely fully on God’s hand to lead us every step of the way.

Pray for:

- Our hearts to remain sensitive to the work of the Spirit through this church-planting process.
- God to be glorified in all that we do.
- The gospel to have a powerful presence in Milwaukee and lives to be changed as they encounter our great God!

We can only move forward on our knees. Will you join us in praying for Vertical Milwaukee and all that God wants to us to do in this city for His glory? As we seek the Lord together there is no limit to what He can accomplish through us!
