Values:

Grace

In Jesus we enjoy abundant, big, lavish, roomy, unending, never-condemning favor with God that results in a resting, reliant, rejoicing life of intimacy with our Father. The Holy Spirit expresses that grace in our relationships. (Acts 20:32 TPT, 2 Cor. 12:9 TPT) (See verses referenced at the bottom of the page)

Rest-oration

We cooperate with God's design for our spiritual, physical, and emotional health, rest and renewal. (Matthew 11:28-30 MSG)

Adventure

As we listen to Jesus, He invites us to embrace a risky, playful, growing, fun, free and courageously creative life with Him. (John 10:27 The Voice)

Confidence

We rely on and trust in the certainty of God's favor, goodness and provision because we are in Christ. This calm assurance allows us the freedom to risk trusting others. (Colossians 2:2 NLT)

Essentialism

We live with purpose, focus, and intentionality, passionately pursuing and living the unique calling of God that best expresses our giftedness and meets a real need in the world. (Colossians 1:28-29 TPT)

  

Grace verses:

Acts 20:32 (TPT)  “And so now, I entrust you into God’s hands and the message of his grace, which is all that you need to become strong. All of God’s blessings are imparted through the message of his grace, which he provides as the spiritual inheritance given to all of his holy ones."

2 Cor. 12:9 (TPT) "But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness. So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me."

Rest-oration verses:

Matthew 11:28-30 (MSG) “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

Adventure verse:

John 10:27 (The Voice) "My sheep respond as they hear My voice; I know them intimately, and they follow Me."

Confidence verses:

Colossians 2:2 (NLT) "I want them to be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love. I want them to have complete confidence that they understand God’s mysterious plan, which is Christ himself."

Essentialism verses:

Colossians 1:28-29 (TPT) "Christ is our message! We preach to awaken hearts and bring every person into the full understanding of truth. It has become my inspiration and passion in ministry to labor with a tireless intensity, with his power flowing through me, to present to every believer the revelation of being his perfect one in Jesus Christ."
