In 2014 Pastor Jon and now the Worship Pastor Dustin started being led to plant a church in Gallipolis. In 2016 with the great support of family, friends, various churches, Jon, his wife Lindsay, and soon to be five children (one on the way), moved to Chicago to go through a 4 month church planting training center at Harvest Bible Chapel. After an extended stay while working for Harvest Bible Chapel, Jon and Lindsay moved back to Gallipolis to start Vertical Church Gallipolis of August 2017.
A core group of people came together, started meeting weekly on Sunday nights, Wednesday night prayer groups and various other discipleship groups. Vertical Church Gallipolis is built on the firm belief that God is faithful to answer the prayers of his people to glorify His name and built on discipleship.
October 7th 2018 Vertical Church Gallipolis launched its first Sunday morning service for the honor of God.
