seeking to know and enjoy God a little more everyday thru intentional conversations
Life is all about relationships

And despite life being about relationships, the church gets caught up building programs. We begin elevating the vessel above the treasure and at some point we begin confusing the vessel for the treasure. What does it look like to return to a simple, biblical view of the spiritual journey of faith? This blog is a search for stories and expressions of people seeking the narrow road and living it out in their everyday, ordinary circumstances. Join the conversation.


key elements in this journey of faith (similar to
Joy in Jesus
There is more joy in Jesus than anywhere else. Our goal is to know, treasure and promote Him.
Informal yet intentional
In this journey of treasuring Christ, we utilize strategy and a roadmap for those we are sharing life with. Though it may appear to be casual and informal it is no less intentional.
Relationally Driven
Spiritual transformation happens best in the context of sharing life together. God uses human relationships as the primary means of stimulating spiritual life and transformation.
Stories of Growth
Authentic life transformation deepens, repeats and multiplies, where the person cannot help but bring others into their experience. Joy isn’t complete until it overflows into the life of another.
People in Process
There is a traceable, and usually messy, growth story of genuine spiritual life (authentic faith in God) producing ongoing spiritual transformation.
Biblically Saturated
The Word of God is the content for seeing lives changed. The Bible is living and active. By it we encounter Jesus and learn to form our lives around Him.
