Relive the moments that made this year special at VOUS

You Are A Brick

Over the past four years, God has exceeded our expectations in every way. We can’t believe we get to be part of such a beautiful, vibrant community of faith. VOUS is special, and it wouldn’t be what it is without the service and sacrifice of people like you!

We've compiled this annual report to provide some visibility into the impact that you are having as a partner of the vision and mission of VOUS Church.

As you browse this report, we hope you are reminded of the many lives around the world that have been impacted because of your generosity, your prayers, and your support for VOUS.

Look at what we can accomplish together!

As you come to Him, the living stone, rejected by men but chosen and precious in God’s sight, you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

Calrie

Someone said, “You should serve.” So I signed up for the Load In / Load Out team.

It’s just been an amazing experience. VOUS makes it very easy for people to get plugged in and get connected right away. I can’t imagine life without my team. When we leave at the end of the night we know that people have given their lives to God, and when the semi truck pulls out we know that God’s work has been done and that God is pleased with our mission and what we’ve done.

Angel & Kary

Last years offering was hard for us. We weren’t in the best place financially — but we were committed to giving.

After praying, the amount we felt we had to give meant we didn’t know how we were gonna make the next months rent. We just knew that was what we had to give. We gave it in obedience and trusted that God was going to cover the rest. And he did. He covered that rent and every other rent in 2019, in abundance.

I’m grateful we get to give and be part of what God is doing in the capital “C” church, at VOUS, and in our personal lives. As we play our part, God does the rest.

There were many years that I had struggled to find friends that would pour into me, pray for me, and keep me accountable.

That changed the moment I decided to be a part of the VOUS family. I was able to connect with people for the first time in a long time. Attending crew, completing the Growth Track, and getting plugged in on team have helped me tremendously on my faith journey. I look forward to each and every Sunday where we as believers have the opportunity to gather, be engaged, and pull our resources together to bless others. To share the love of Jesus. To point people towards the cross

we did this together

Thank you for being a part of helping us to accomplish the vision God has given us for 2019.

As we serve together, we get to be a part of something so much bigger than ourselves. God is doing more if we’ll awaken to it. He wants to continue doing more if we keep trusting him together.

We’re not just building for the here and now, we’re building for next generation. We stand on the shoulders of so many generations before us to blaze a trail that the world has never seen before.

These numbers mean a lot to us because they each represent a life that has been impacted and has had an encounter with God in some shape or form.

We're humbled and honored to have the opportunity to lead this community both locally and globally online via VOUS Friends & Family.

Thank you for partnering with us. We look forward to what God will do when we just allow him to use us.
