- Jesus


Many times our spiritual lives don't seem to be going anywhere. The world promises faster computers and easier lives but our souls feel emptier, our days quicker, our lives drier.  We feel as if we are stuck wandering in a desert without a way out.


Up and down, around and around, faster and quicker but no progress.


Jesus promised that He is the way. Through Him and with Him, there is a promised way to the plan, power, and the freedom of the Father and the Holy Spirit.


Come and join fellow youth and churches in pursuing the one real way forward-
