Have you ever started something only to never finish it? While we might struggle to start and finish things in our own personal lives, God has begun some incredible things in the church and has called us to complete them. Over two years ago, God birthed in the heart of Vintage Church the MORE Initiative. This initiative laid an incredible foundation for what is to come. As we enter into 2018, God has called us to complete what he began. How are we going to do this? In 2018, Vintage Church is going to complete the Pathway! Join us for the next 4 weeks, as we discover what it looks like for us to complete the pathway together!

Gathering Times and Location

  • Sundays at 9 & 11a

The Vintage Pathway

Connect Track_Vintage Pathway.png

At Vintage Church we are intentional in everything we do. We believe God has big plans for each one of us. Because of this, we have the Vintage Pathway, Vintage Church's discipleship journey. The Vintage Pathway is the journey that we believe each and every person should take so that they can grow in their relationship with Jesus. Each step a person takes along the Vintage Pathway leads them into greater maturity in Christ.

What are the steps along the Vintage Pathway?

  1. Gather: For many people, the first step in following Jesus or connecting with Vintage Church is by attending a gathering.
  2. Connect: After people attend gatherings, they connect further into the life of Vintage Church through the Connect Track, joining a group, and serving on a team.
  3. Partner: While it is awesome for people to connect with Vintage Church, we believe it is important to also commit by becoming a Vintage Partner.
  4. Lead: Our prayer is that all people at Vintage Church would aspire to lead whether that is with our vTeams, vGroups, Ministry Teams, Staff, or pastors.
  5. Send: Whether it is to our neighborhood or across the globe, we believe that God sends all Christians out to live the gospel, serve the city, and be the church.

vGroup Discussion Questions

  • Have you ever started something only to never finish the project? Why did you stop and what did you learn about yourself?
  • In 2 Corinthians 8:11, Paul tells the Corinthians, "now finish doing it well, so that your readiness in desiring it may be matched by your completing it out of what you have." Why do you think it is important to finish things we start as Christians?
  • On Sunday, Pastor Dustin taught the Vintage Pathway. How does the Vintage Pathway help explain how Vintage Church makes disciples?

December 3, 2017 | Discipleship Cone | 2 Timothy 2:1–2

It's time to complete what God has begun! Let's make disciples!

vGroup Discussion Questions

  • On Sunday, Pastor Rob Wilton preached from 2 Timothy 2:1–2 and Vintage's focus on discipleship in 2018. Prior to Sunday, what had you heard and thought regarding discipleship? Have you ever been discipled or discipled someone else? How was that experience?
  • In 2 Timothy 2:2, Paul tells Timothy, "What you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men." What does it mean for us today to entrust the gospel to others? Think of some practical examples.
  • Pastor Rob shared about the discipleship cone on Sunday. He talked about how discipleship happens at different levels in the worship gathering, in vGroups, in Life Groups, and by your self. With these things in mind, what is one thing you need to adjust in 2018 to grow in discipleship more?

December 10, 2017 | Leadership Pipeline | Mark 10:42–45

 It’s time to complete what God has begun! Let’s lead the way!

vGroup Discussion Questions

  • We continued our Complete the Pathway series this weekend, focusing on our Leadership Pipeline. In thinking about leadership, what kind of experiences have you had under different leaders and in leadership? Were these experiences good, bad, or indifferent?
  • In Mark 10:42–45, Jesus provides a very different vision for leadership than the world offers. Look at Jesus' words again and take some time to compare Jesus' vision of leadership with what our world says is good leadership. What makes Jesus' vision of leadership so counter-cultural?
  • What leadership opportunities has the Lord given you? In those leadership opportunities, where do you need to grow and what is your plan to grow?

  • On Sunday, Pastor Dustin preached from Luke 10:25–37 and the parable of the good Samaritan. After reading this passage again, what does the actions of the Samaritan tell us about him?
  • There are so many needs in our city, including physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and others. What is one need you are passionate about and what is one thing you will begin to do in 2018 to meet that need?
