Journey Groups are groups of 2 to 6 people of the same sex that Journey through life together. Journey Groups focus on living out our blueprint for being a disciple (aka L.I.V.E.S.). These groups will meet weekly, where they come together to S.O.A.P. through scripture, and seek to Journey through life together with the common goals of listening to God, and living out what God is teaching us from the Bible.
L.I.V.E.S. is our blueprint for making disciples at Vertical. One of our goals at Vertical Church is to help people discover the joy that is found in living the life of a follower of Jesus. In fact Jesus makes it very clear that everyone who believes in Him should not only be living out what He teaches, but also guiding others in doing the same. Through L.I.V.E.S. we have a simple process that helps us live out what a disciple is at Vertical Church.
The Bible should be the first place we go for guidance and direction in our lives. Although we know the importance of Scripture, we often get bogged down with busy schedules and push it aside. At Vertical we use a very simple but effective bible reading plan called S.O.A.P. As we gather in our Journey Groups we are able to go through the S.O.A.P. process and discover God’s direction for our lives.
