The “Why” Behind the “What”
I believe every Christian is well-intentioned and desires to make a difference in the lives of others. I also believe that God strategically places us in our neighborhoods and in our work places to be and share good news with our neighbors and co-workers, but often we just don’t know how.
Staying is the New Going: Online is all about learning to love the places God puts us and being ministers of the gospel right where we are. Launching this group comes from a place of passion. I desire to create opportunities for people to engage in discipling relationships, and this is my first attempt at creating a online environment focused on a singular topic with friends from around the U.S. who want to follow Jesus more deeply and intentionally with their whole lives.
