We are a church that meets in Central Oregon, in the town of Sisters. We deeply believe in  rooting our church in God’s Word and carrying out His mandate to make disciples. 

OUR MISSION: 

Vast Church exists to make disciples for the Glory of God and the joy of all peoples. 

OUR VALUES:

Knowing God Deeply in His Word – Hosea 6:6 

Love God Passionately – Matthew 22:37-39 

Proclaiming God Boldly – Luke 10:1-3 

Living Powerfully for God’s Glory – 1 Corinthians 8:6; Isaiah 43:6-7; 1 Corinthians 10:31;  Colossians 3:17; 1 Peter 4:11

THE NAME: 

Vast Church was officially formed early in the fall of 2011. Prior to that, we spent a few hot,  dusty months meeting in a hay canopy outside Sisters, here in Central Oregon, under the name  Red Canvas. We spent time searching our hearts and seeking what God wanted to do with this  new organization. As a result, we settled on the name Vast – not because we’re big (far from it),  but because God is. We are a Bible-based church that believes both in the inerrancy of scripture  and the profound errancy of the human heart. Simply put, we are all sinners. All of us. You, our  leadership, the guy writing these words and every other human being ever created. Except  Jesus. And it is him we seek to know and follow more deeply as we live together in a  community of transparency, openness, honesty and truth. All are welcome here. We don’t  believe people should feel they have to be good enough to show up at our doors. Quite the  opposite, in fact. We all face challenges, struggles, hurt, pain, temptation and failure. But only  by meeting together, living in community and exploring the love of Jesus – as well as what he  did for us on the cross – can we endure, heal, thrive and discover true joy.
