Behind the scenes of Vertical Church Band on the road is a team committed to their home church. Every week we’re leading worship, planning services, training volunteers and leaders, and writing songs for over 14,000 people across 7 campuses in Chicago. This is a huge part of who we are as a team and what we do in ministry. That’s why we’re now offering a Worship Workshop for you and your team. Come and join us for an afternoon of training from the band and leaders from our band and church ministry.
