[Vimeo_Channel_Gallery user=”2539317″ color=”fff” thumbwidth=”100″ type=”album” videowidth=”612″ maxitems=”25″ thumbwidth=”110″]

Jesus was relentless in His pursuit to accomplish the mission that the Father had given to Him.  He was willing to sacrifice His very life so that we could experience and express his life. Before Jesus went to the cross, He also prayed that we would be courageous, unified and relentless for Him. He prayed that the church would continue to be relentless, just as He was.

#1: Relentless


From the beginning of time God has been relentless at pursuing the hearts and lives of His creation. The book of Acts is a roadmap for what that could look like for the church. Outside, at Hunter Creek Farms, we kick off our fall season and introduce what could be next for us.
