How do we grow in Jesus? How can we become more like Him? How can our lives be a reflection of the resurrection life of His kingdom at work within us? We're glad you asked.
You will need a plan. You will need others. You will need Jesus leading you along the way. We're here to help and we would love to come alongside as you take your own journey of spiritual growth with Jesus. We believe that Jesus is Truth and His Word gives life. (His words, not ours!) He speaks through His living Word, through prayer, and through community. So, we invite you to jump into all three. On this page, you will find:
1. Reading plans for jumping into Scripture this year.
2. Opportunities to grow in your prayer life.
3. The opportunity to connect with a spiritual growth advisor.
4. Other resources we have found helpful in our own growth in Christ.
Option number 3 is a new one for us. We feel a nudge form Jesus to offer customized guidance and counsel for anyone that wants it. This could be a quick, initial conversation over email. An opportunity to meet face to face - just once, or several times. Or it might get you connected to a group or some new friendships. Whatever you need to grow in Jesus, we are here to help.

"Turn your phone into an Inner Room. Learn to pray by praying"
"I've enjoyed reading this book as it is full of stories of how the author, Jill Weber, explores various forms of prayer and shares her personal journey of saying "yes" to God's call, even when it is not straightforward, to now helping lead the 24-7 International Prayer movement."
