Culture is a garden
to be cultivated

Makoto Fujimura

incarnation over Imitation

Esse quam videri is a Latin phrase meaning “to be rather than to seem”. The vision is Jesus, not just to seem like Him,
but to be the very presence of faith, hope and love that renews us spiritually, culturally and socially.
You’ll find us celebrating the good, suffering with the broken and participating in a hope where all shall be well.

Life and beauty immersed, enjoyed and shared.

LAB > the podcast

The gospel is not an idea. It is a seed that produces real evidence that we can taste and see. We may not always be consciously aware of it, but this fruit is all around us. LAB: The Podcast celebrates people whose lives and work give us a glimpse of the life and beauty of the gospel.

Each year V3 cares for culture by identifying and investing in one initiative for the common good.

The LAB Initiative helps fight human trafficking, raising funds to pioneer efforts in the areas of enforcement, survivor care, demand reduction and early intervention efforts.

You can join us by praying and bringing what you have to set captives free!

V3 > Market

VU VI VO takes on shape and form in our marketplace. Each product is an expression of life, beauty and friendship.

LAB > Coffee Collaboration

Buddy Brew Coffee and VU VI VO have teamed up on a coffee collaboration. Its a win-win for life and beauty. Not only does this support your local roaster but a portion of the proceeds support the V3 Initiative to end human trafficking.

To grow in Christ is to be re-humanized to become fully alive, fully human, fully free.
