What is the Ascend at VBF?


The Ascend College Group (ages 18 – 26) meets every Thursday night at 7:00 pm, in Station 3:16 (2300 East Brundage Lane).

Purpose: “We Are Family”
We believe that the church should be a family.
We encourage young adults to come just as they are, with all of their problems. We desire to connect with one another through fellowship, learning, and growing more intimately with God.

Method: We connect college-age adults through our large group on Thursday evenings, consisting of contemporary worship, studying God’s Word, relevant teaching, and fellowship opportunities. We also encourage each young adult to be committed to a co-ed, men’s, or women’s life group, led by one of our Ascend leaders.
