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 'on location' to plant in St. Paul, MN. Here are some updates from Chris and Alex about Vertical Church St. Paul.


Praise Reports:

  • Our giving goal for May was $7000.00. We are so thankful to God, and thankful to you, to announce that we reached our goal with $7,874 dollars generously given! In regards to your giving: This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.- 2 Cor. 9:12
  • This week, the Asmus family got to move into their new home in St. Paul! The North American Mission Board is welcoming them to live in this home for the next 2 years at very little cost to them. Would you just thank God on behalf of the Asmus family?

Prayer Request:

  • Today kicks of 2 weeks of prayer and fasting. Today’s particular prayer request is: Pray that God would exalt his name in St. Paul. “Pray then like this: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.’” (Matthew 6:9) What are you fasting? Every time you feel a hunger for whatever you’re fasting today, pray Matthew 6:9.


  • Our fast kicked off today! We will be posting our specific prayer requests on the Vertical Church Facebook page. If you are fasting from social media, please email Emily at admin@verticalstpaul so she can email you instead.
  • As you know, we are working our way towards $10,000 giving per month before we launch in September. This month’s giving goal is $8000.00 (only $126 dollars more than we gave last month!) What a joy to grow in generosity together! Let’s do this.
