    Devotionals | November 08, 2021

    Who has been Jesus to you? Who has come alongside you and walked with you in life, helping you to discover life from God's perspective?

    For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.—Ephesians 2:10

I only quit one thing in my life before age 18, my high school football team. I quit because I sat on the bench 99.976% of the time.

What is strategic quitting and why should pastors and leaders practice it?

  • Background Noise

    Devotionals | November 03, 2021

    What thoughts hover in the background of your mind? Your thoughts and beliefs form the basis for decisions and actions.
