Las Vegas, NV | vivalaverve.org
Verve church is for people who don't like church. It is a non-denomination Christian Church located near the Las Vegas Strip. Why Las Vegas? Between 5% and 9% of the people in Las Vegas go to Church. The pastors believe that there are lot of people who are looking for God and seeking a spiritual dimension to life, but just don't want to go to church to find it. Pastor Vincent Antonucci says, "we have atheists, girls from the strip clubs, gang members, drug dealers, and pimps. They just hear these radical stories of people finding a new and better life, and that's kind of the appeal."

CSF is a non-denominational campus ministry on UK’s campus. CSF isn’t a place. CSF isn’t a program. CSF is everywhere on campus- although we do have a building where we sometimes hang out.

It’s wherever people are interacting with each other and with God.
