• Encountering God

    We try to help people get to know and love God
We are a diverse group of people who seek to follow Jesus, because we’ve found him to be the way to a fulfilled life. We want to be open about how fantastic that is; but we also want to be honest that there’s also so much in life that we’re still trying to figure out.

Have you ever wondered what it means to become a Christian?

Interesting listens
