    Do you ever feel like your life is nonstop running and running, but you aren’t really going anywhere?

What if the life we long for isn’t found doing what everyone else is doing? What if it was found going against the grain?

    Against the Grain kicks off February 16 & 19.

We believe God’s people don’t merely need another method for evangelism – what they need is a passion to help people they love find the God who loves them.  Don’t have your one yet, that’s ok, see resources below to help you identify your ONE.
