A place for everyone

Ministries & Communities

Our mission is to invite people into a life-giving relationship with Jesus. Whether that’s for our kids, teenagers or other groups, we want to create opportunities that speak directly to any age or demographic.

We desire for our space to be where kids feel both emotionally and physically safe and we accomplish this by leveraging a check out system involving claim tags and volunteers who are background checked and specifically trained.

We Love Moms & Dads

We recognize that God has called parents to be the primary faith-nurturers of children, therefore, we choose to partner with each family as they provide spiritual direction for the next generation.


What does a Vortex students experience look like?

Vortex Students is the junior high and high school community of Vortex Church. We are committed to creating a place where young people can belong, grow, and encounter God. Expect loud music, engaging games to leave you crying from laughter or voiceless from cheering for your team, and a relevant message to challenge students to seek Jesus throughout their lives.

Small Groups

Vortex Small Groups are key to developing connections with those who share your interests or can come alongside you in life’s harder moments while you grow in your walk with the Lord. Groups meet once a week in homes, businesses, restaurants, or at the church. The groups change and begin again three times a year, so you have the opportunity to try out different ones. You’ll never fully experience all that Vortex Church has to offer until you connect in a small group!

If you’re interested in joining or leading a group, fill out this form and a leader will be in contact soon!

Women's Ministry

A community of women encouraging each other throughout life

We believe that God created us to be in relationship with Him and others. Whether single, married, a mom or an empty-nester—we believe women need to share life and laughter as they grow in their faith.

Encourage, challenge, and Equip

Just as iron sharpens iron, we believe men need each other to challenge, equip, and encourage one another to follow God and live life well. Regardless of age or background, from businessman to outdoorsman, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in our men's ministry.


When people pray, lives are changed!

At Vortex, we believe fervent, heart-felt prayer is key to seeing people come to Jesus and experience transformation and supernatural growth.
