Jesus isn’t a barrier. He’s an opportunity. And He's open to everyone.
When God’s Timing Seems Terrible
In the face of loss, where and how can we find the providence of a loving, sovereign God?
Preparing for the Hard Times
Nothing can guarantee we'll make it through hardship without scars, slip-ups, or shaky moments. But there are things we can do to maximize our chances of suffering in a way that honors God and makes us more like Jesus. And a lot of that work begins long before the trial does.
When Obedience Comes First

Finding God When Things Look Bleak
We may not always be sure what to make of what God sends us. But we can always trust and know the One who sends it.
Building a Faithful Future

Good News Afoot

What It Takes to ‘Taste and See’
A life following Jesus isn't an easy life. But it's the best possible life we could ever live. And it takes us to the best place we could ever be: the heart of God, the very definition of goodness. You’d think we’d rush to taste that goodness. What kind of healthy human doesn’t want to experience inner peace, to be truly and faithfully loved, to live with a sense that they and their lives matter? Yet we hold back....afraid the sweetness holds poison. Convinced the fruit we’ve been told is scrumptious will turn out sour or bland. Suspicious that the goodness is all taste and no nourishment for our famished souls.
