"For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many."

Mark 10:45

There's no better way to get connected at Vertical than to volunteer with us! At Vertical, we call our volunteers, "hosts", because their role is to welcome students in and foster a sense of approachability in efforts to spark further conversation about Jesus Christ. Hosts spend every Monday night serving students at Vertical in a variety of ways, from prayer to setting up. We invite you to consider joining us as we play a small role in what God is doing at Baylor - our team needs YOU!

Host Quotes.

"The opportunity to volunteer at Vertical has given me a chance to meet so many new people at Baylor I would never have met otherwise. And what better way to get to know someone than to serve alongside them each week?"
- Bailee Flake, Student Host

"Volunteering with Vertical has pushed me to serve in different ways and allowed me to connect with people I would not have ordinarily met. It is an opportunity to grow your faith and will challenge you with what it looks like to live out what Jesus models in Mark 10:45."
- Garrett Hall, Student Host
