The Faithful & The Vile (6-Days)

In this series, we’ll look at six encounters Jesus had on the way to the cross. We’ll see how his perfect sinless life stands in contrast to everyone he meets. You’ll meet a betrayer, a denier, a rioter, a distant admirer, a passionate crier, and two foolish travelers. Discover how Jesus’ faithfulness stands in the place of our wretchedness. These are the stories of The Faithful and The Vile.

Empty Nets & Broken Lives, Six Eternity-Shaping Encounters in the Gospel of Luke (6-Days)

Encountering Jesus changes everything. Peter realized his sinfulness after Jesus miraculously filled his empty fishing nets. The paralyzed and blind realized they needed forgiveness more than physical healing and then they received both. Two sisters encountered Jesus and discovered worship trumps service. Meander through these stories and more in the gospel of Luke, and discover how Jesus fills our nets and restores our brokenness, one personal encounter at a time.  


Holy Leisure in the Gospel of Mark (4-Days)

Holy leisure is about finding rest and enjoyment in God’s presence, even when life’s circumstances are hard. The Gospel of Mark is full of examples of Jesus exemplifying this restful dependence on his Father, even when exhaustion, storms, and interruptions threatened to thwart his will. Experience a life of holy leisure as you learn to live, rest, and trust, like Jesus.

Discover spiritual rest with Amy Carmichael and Hudson Taylor, travel through the valley of death with Corrie ten Boom, and be amazed at the divine protection of Gladys Alyward.
