We believe God has called us to be a multiplying church that trains up and sends out leaders to share the Gospel. Chris and Alex Asmus are now serving in St. Paul, MN. Here are some updates from Chris and Alex about Vertical Church St. Paul.


Praise Reports:

So far in our Advent series Who Would Have Dreamed, we have seen that Christmas means Jesus has come to deliver us from sin and from shame . Let’s continue to praise Jesus for these ever-glorious, ever-present realities!

Prayer Requests:

Tomorrow is our Christmas outreach at 3:00 PM at 1021 Hennepin Avenue!
Would you pray that as we go out tomorrow, we would all be “filled with the Holy Spirit and continue to speak the word of God with boldness” (Acts 4:31b). 
If you cannot make it, we understand. However, you can still get involved! Please pray that many would be saved and that there would be “great joy in the city” (Acts 8:8).


  • December 15th Outreach: We are so excited to have the opportunity to serve our homeless neighbors here in the Twin Cities on December 15th. Our church is bringing 200 bagged lunches to the event. We will hand out food and spend time praying with the people who come to the outreach. You can help!

    Help us hand out food: this is a big need. We want to be the hands and feet of Jesus and serve our homeless neighbors. We'll be going to the First Baptist Church in Minneapolis from 3:00-5:30 PM to give out the lunches and pray with those who attend. The address is 1021 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis.

    Make this a priority for you and your family. We want to be a church that, by God's power, turns the Twin Cities right-side-up with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We're not an audience, we're an army. Let's link arms together on December 15th to for the name and fame of Jesus Christ. 

  • Sunday, December 23rd is Plus 1 Sunday! We are praying that everyone brings 1 guest to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ this Christmas season. For the glory of God, and for the sake of your loved one, would you invite them to church today? 

  • Also, after service, we will be holding a Christmas Cookie Contest! Bring 12 or more cookies to share with the church, and the winner of the contest will receive a $100 gift card (and Christmas cookie bragging rights for an entire year).

  • In 2018, God provided for all our needs through your Christ-displaying generosity. More amazing, in 2018 God grew you into a more generous person. Let’s finish 2018 and set a new tone for 2019 with cheerful, worshipful, and generous giving. So far for the month of December, you have given $5,368.
