Modern life can be stressful. Through all of the demands, responsibilities, tasks, and expectations, it can be challenging to see a path to sustainable success when everything seems to be hanging by a thread. This stress can make us feel as if one wrong move could cost us everything, but that isn’t necessarily the case. We’re simply distracted, and some extra guidance may help. Pastor Mike Signorelli knows just how vital the role of faith is in building sustainable success. In fact, he an entire church around this ideology.
Mike Signorelli is the founder and lead pastor of V1 Church, one of New York City’s growing churches. The church is even popular with agnostics, atheists, truth-seekers, and is being nationally recognized for its growth. The church has opened two locations in the last two years, both in a region where less than 5% of people attend church. This is a colossal accomplishment because parishioners gravitate towards Mike’s practical application of faith in their daily lives.
“In the context of our busy lives, we need the language and relationships that fortify our souls,” stated Mike. As a pastor, he understands how those facts help us build each other up and lead truly successful lives. Motivation comes from within, but an accomplishment is a product of embracing positive, external factors that propel us to see our dreams to fruition. “We are not necessarily looking for organized religion or another set of rules, but we are longing for the metaphysical amid personal difficulties,” he further explained.
At V1, the focus is not on past rules or rituals that are turning modern society away from the concept of churches; but instead on spiritual significance, which is something everyone can benefit from. “It all began when I attended a conference by a renowned futurist, during which he explained that as global access to necessities increases, the single greatest need for the future of humanity would be spiritual significance. It was an eye-opening experience”. Mike knew right then and there that his dream of creating a church in one of the world’s busiest cities was not just a dream, but a necessity. He claimed, “We share faith and spiritual connection in our church so that we can lift humanity together towards Christ, which means true success for every one of us.”
Mike Signorelli built V1 Church to help his parishioners realize and reach their potential. With the one campus located in Farmingdale and a second in Glendale, V1 Church shows no signs of slowing down. People continue to flock to their services, building their faith, and using the positive energy to launch themselves further in their careers, relationships, and lives, all for the greater good.
