Why and What is The Journey?
Jesus is a wise leader, a profound teacher, and as God-in-the-flesh knows what abundant life looks like. Out of deep love, he offers that life to anyone who chooses to follow him. The Journey is a year-long spiritual formation and discipleship cohort where you will learn to follow and become more like Jesus in deeper ways. Through a combination of weekend retreats and monthly gatherings, you will be given practical tools to deepen your relationship with God, with yourself, and with others. By the end of The Journey, you will have a clearer image of how to cooperate with God as He invites you to become the kind of person who naturally does the things Jesus would do in any situation.
