Today Vintage Church is excited to not only celebrate 10 years of faithful ministry of our Founding Pastor and his family, but we are sending them to plant a second Vintage Church in Pittsburgh, PA. This new church will be planted in strategic partnership with the North American Mission Board’s SEND Network. The SEND Network is planting churches in 32 North American cities. We have enjoyed our partnership with them in New Orleans, New York City, and Denver. Pastor Rob will begin serving as a NAMB Missionary starting on January 1, 2018. On top of working with NAMB, we are excited to announce a new partnership with Longhollow Baptist Church. The Wiltons will move to Nashville, TN at the end of the year and begin as a Church Planting Resident with Longhollow Baptist Church. Longhollow Baptist Church will serve as a strategic sending church. Pastor Rob will also serve with their staff to help launch their new church planting strategy. After this time, the Wilton family and a core team will then move to Pittsburgh at the end of the summer 2018. It is our hope to celebrate the official launch of Vintage Church PITT in 2019.
We are so thankful for all that the Lord has done over the last decade through Pastor Rob and his family. He has modeled for us what it means to live the gospel, serve the city, and be the church in New Orleans and beyond. We are excited that Pastor Rob will continue to serve our movement as our Founding Pastor, Advisory Board Member, and Director of Church Planting. We truly believe that the best is yet to come in New Orleans, Pittsburgh, and beyond!
