Why Vintage?

Simply put: because the harvest is plentiful and the workers are few. Vintage exists to help raise up college students to do something more. Knowing Christ is a free gift. Following Christ will cost you everything. Sadly, many college students never grasp this truth. It’s Luke 14, and Vintage propels you to count the cost, and truly follow Him.

This pursuit will ultimately lead you in two directions:

1. A genuine pursuit of God. Christ said himself, “I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him he will bear much fruit. Apart from me you can do nothing.” A huge part of this project is learning to remain in Christ.

2. A genuine love for others. True love for God propels you to love others. It is not simply about you becoming a “better Christian.” It’s Acts 20:24 and Matthew 28:18-20. This project helps to equip students in making an impact for Christ on the ATU campus.

This is the something more. You only get a few summers. Do not waste them. Invest them into something eternal…something that will help you in the, oh so sweet, journey of following Jesus!

“Vintage is a summer discipleship project that encourages true Biblical community while equipping students for a lifelong passionate pursuit of Christ.”

– Matthew Ferren, Vintage 2012 Participant

The Dream Fulfilled

Today, as we conclude our sermon series, “Joseph’s Restoration,” we get to see the incredible fulfillment of Joseph’s teenage dreams, his restoration to his brothers, and his father’s reaction to the news that he is alive.

The Final Test

Today, as we move into week four of our sermon series, “Joseph’s Restoration,” we see a clear reminder that there can never be restoration between either us and God or us and others until we take personal responsibility for what we have done.

The Royal Welcome

Today, as we move into week three of our sermon series, “Joseph’s Restoration,” we get a reminder that no one – absolutely no one – is beyond the reach of God’s grace and mercy as an unlikely hero emerges from Jacob’s sons.
