From The Founders
It’s been an amazing journey. And now God has another trail for us to blaze. Together. A new ministry, a new book project, and the privilege of seeing God change lives right here in our own city. Look around a bit and email us with comments and questions. We’d love your feedback and your prayers as we launch into a new season of life. One filled with intrigue and adventure. Won’t you join us?
We were born into an imperfect world to imperfect parents as imperfect people. We inherited a mess. When Adam and Eve bit that darn fruit everything changed. Where perfect fellowship was broken in a heartbeat. But God…. Provided a way. A way to heal the wounds of our past and experience His unconditional love.

Return to the Garden
Return to the Garden – Through Jesus death and resurrection, all believers have the capacity for intimacy with God. That same intimacy that we experienced as we walked and talked with Him in the Garden of Eden. At His crucifixion, when Christ declared “It is Finished”, the temple veil was torn from top to bottom providing complete access to the His throne room. Our ability to step back into the Garden and enjoy full, uninhibited intimacy with Him was restored – as it was always intended to be.
The Tree of Brokenness
The Tree of Brokenness illustrates our futile attempts to get our needs met apart from God, leading to extreme brokenness in our lives. Choosing to do so makes it impossible to walk in the fruits of the Spirit promised to every believer. The root system, representing core longings that can only be met in God, are broken due to the traumas and wounds we experience in our lives. Those wounds separate us from our heart and distance us from Him. Due to that disconnect, our response is to act out through dysfunctional behavior, illustrated in the branches, as we seek to fill the spot only reserved for Him. These behaviors are no substitute for the healing work of Christ in our lives.
The Tree of Restoration
Tree of Restoration – Once our traumas and wounds are addressed – through Christ – we are equipped to experience a whole new relationship with God, our core longings fully met in Him. The result of this transformed relationship is a vibrant, blossoming life exhibiting all the fruits of the Spirit. Fully alive in Him, our identity is secure in the truth of who we were created to be. A restored child of God – one that can live out the purpose that God has called each of us to experience. Unique in every way, we are then equipped to step into the freedom God has for us when we reconnect with our true-self and His heart. Our wounds are healed so we can pass His love on to others.
