Are distractions getting in
the way of your life with God?

Dallas Willard said, “You will not drift
or accidentally stumble into a life
of constant companionship with Jesus.”

If we’re just drifting, we'll never find that
conversational life with God that we long for.

One of the problems is that we have
so many distractions in our lives.

What if there was a way to focus our hearts and minds on God that wasn't complicated or a lot of work?

What if you could cultivate a conversational relationship with Jesus that felt easy and natural?

Now you can!

We've crafted a unique online experience to show you how to find more breathing-space in your life by letting go of distractions and by listening to God just simply speak to you through Scripture.

Meeting God in Scripture is an 8-week online experience to help you move from distractions to a conversational life with God.

In Meeting God in Scripture, experienced Bible teacher Jan Johnson guides you through a weekly Scripture meditation paired with a weekly instructional video to help you along the way. At the end of each week, you will also receive a video blessing to conclude our weekly rhythm.

"The course has given me a lot of freedom in my relationship with Jesus. I'm one of those who have trouble being consistent with my "quiet time" and feel guilty if I don't. The traditional ways to structure a quiet time have been hard for me to use...I get bogged down and have felt frustrated with them. But this approach to meditation and relationship with Jesus has helped me to put aside those things and just focus on being with Jesus and listening to him."
