and the REAL winner is…

Varsity Church

Yep, that’s the name!  Here’s why…

1 – It fits the college culture

This is a college town, and if you live here and don’t know that than you must be from another dimension.  Everywhere you go you see The University of North Carolina – from the names of businesses, to Carolina blue on signs, the firetrucks and buses are blue, people wear UNC colors all over town, to the color of the sky – it is everywhere.  Makes a Wake Forest guy sick to his stomach!  Plus, Varsity is a throw back, a retro word.  Reminds me of the golden days of sports, whatever time period that might have been.  Varsity fits this culture.

2 – Its a sports town

Forbes calls it the #2 BEST college sports town in America.  We can argue that all day.  The point is that sports play a role in shaping this community.  I figure, lets use a name that fits.

3 – It fits our DNA

We are using words like team, action, gameplan, coaching as our lexicon, in our processes, how we disciple.  Varsity fits that well.

4 – URL

And we could get varsitychurch.com as our URL.  Now that is SWEET!

So there you have it – Varsity Church is on the books!  Enjoy it!

    Chad, News just in: Three churches in Florida are now called, “The Varsity”, “Varsity Journey”, and “Discover Varsity”. Coincidence?

      You know when you set the trends you can’t help but have copycats! Better be like Todd and grab EVERY URL I can find with the word varsity in it…well, he probably beat me to it already.

    Definitely creative. I doubt any other church has that name. 🙂 Nice work man. Can’t wait to see it grow. Peace.
