What is a Jesus People Workshop?

The concept is really simple.

  • Connector.

    Hear New Ideas

    We want to introduce you to Jesus People … authors and speakers who excel at communicating thoughts and ideas that ultimately point people toward Jesus.

  • Connector.

    Wrestle With Those Ideas ... Together

    Following Jesus is not based on getting the answers right. So you’ll be invited to wrestle with the tensions and questions you encounter with others who attend.

About The Pursuing God

The Pursuing GodIs God lost? Many of us feel that way. It’s as if God’s gone missing, out in the universe somewhere — and we must pick up the hunt, following any trail of breadcrumbs to go find him. We speak of “searching for God,””exploring spirituality,” and “finding faith.”

But what if we have it backward and God is the one pursuing us? What if our job is not to go find God, but to stop running and hiding? Not to discover the light, but step out of the shadows? Not to earn God’s love, but simply receive it?

Jesus reveals a God who comes after us, who is on the prowl, hunting down his world for reconciliation. And the question we’re left with is not whether we’ve been good enough, jumped high enough, or sought hard enough …

The question is: “Do we want to be found?”
