About The Vertical Church

The Vertical Church is a fast growing church in the Southwest corner of Arizona not the California and Mexican border. In the last 16 years, we have grown from zero to over 1500 and have baptized close to 2,000 people. We exist so that people far from God can become the hands and feet of Jesus. We have a dream to see 3% of Yuma worshiping at Vertical by 2025 so that we can make is hard to get to hell from Yuma. By August of this year, we will be moving into our new 750 seat auditorium where the Kids and Students will occupy our old building. This is an amazing opportunity for someone willing to be a self starter, work hard, and work on a team with our Family Ministry Department!
