Vertical Generation (VG) is a mission of Calvary Student Ministy, seeking to serve the world around them and to share the good news of Jesus.

We intend to connect with ministry partners and church planters across the globe to encourage, resource, and help advance their work in their cities and communities.

VG seeks to do this by understanding the needs of those we are partnering with and then mobilize students to use the gifts and resources they have to invest Kingdom work with our partners.

Students have opportunities to use their gifts and talents through various ministry needs. These needs may include, but are not limited to, visual arts, band, vocal ensemble, production/tech, drama/puppets, recreation/outreach, etc.

When a community of students, with the common bond of Christ come together to share it, we believe lives are transformed.
