Imagine a faith - a life - that when trouble comes, it not only survives but it thrives. You don't just 'get by', but you get by with hope, with courage, with peace, and with joy.

Am I the only one who deals with this? Am I alone in this? Probably not. The people you work, live, sit, and are in line with are most likely dealing with the same kind of things you are. They just aren’t talking about it. But we are. In this series, you will hear...
It’s time for us to go All In on God’s mission to Monmouth County: to share his love with those who don’t yet know him, inviting, inspiring, and leading people to follow Jesus. You are made to be on this mission with us, so we invite you in to it!
