Chris Lake

John Stott, who believed that all of life is a context for worship, mission and ministry, inspired the Vere Institute’s foundation. The Vere Institute seeks to envision, equip, encourage and empower Christians to see their lives as meaningful and to live as fruitful whole-life disciples on their daily lives, wherever they find themselves. We hope that you will join the journey to discover together how to make our faith a reality for all of us, 24/7, 365 days a year.
