Our Story

How do you pronounce that?

We’ve heard it all and we like to leave it open-ended. VU VI VO is an acronym, when decoded, illuminates the vision, journey and ministry of Jesus to mature spirituality and the promise of shalom.
  • VU = Vision up (Adoration as creatures to a Creator)
  • VI = Vision in (Transformation and contemplation)
  • VO = Vision out (Love, Out pouring and self emptying love)

Our origin

VU VI VO Ministries was birthed with joy around an outdoor table in the red hills of Oregon’s wine country by a small group of friends and pioneers longing for a day when all shall be well. With a shared vision of Jesus and commitment to share the life & beauty of the gospel with the world we simply began in the direction of our hope.


In 2015 faithfulness, obedience and opportunity uprooted our Oregon-based ministry and we followed the mandate to take the good news to the ends of the earth (quite literally). For our context that was Tampa, Florida. As with any new beginning, we had to recalibrate, pray, adapt, relinquish and embrace. Life is lived forward in hope and understood backwards in still moments. Each day the call gains clarity; we see, we hope and we participate in the future.


Participation in the future is our vocation and movement towards wholeness, flourishing and shalom. We believe there is nothing that cannot be mended and made new. This is where the thread we are stitching meets the thread He is stitching.
