Our programs are like an immersion into a new language – the language of living in Jesus.  The goal is fluency in the language of relationships.  Programs share a sequential vision, building an understanding of relationships and family culture.  The foundation is an encounter with Jesus.  This encounter is the means for both insight and vision.  Encountering Jesus leads a radical change in living and relationships.

What Will God Use Your Situation For? Can we be happy and joyous in our trials?

Zoe shares on what it means to keep a positive attitude when God as you walk through trials.

Scripture

James 1:11-13 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

For the sun rises and, together with the scorching wind, dries up the grass; its flower falls off, and its beautiful appearance perishes. In the same way, the rich person will wither away while pursuing his activities.

Happy is the one who endures trials, because when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

No one undergoing a trial should say, “I am being tempted by God,” since God is not tempted by evil, and he himself doesn’t tempt anyone.

James 1:2 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

Consider it a great joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you experience various trials,
