XTREME LIVING – RAD DISCIPLESHIP

Living On The Edge

Young or old, we have one life to live. Let’s live it to the fullest for Jesus, changing lives on the way. (And we’ll be the first to change when we take radical steps of faith). Don’t do what’s comfy. Do what’s rad. Do the crazy things Jesus asks us to do in His Word. By faith. With Him. Not by might but in full throttle Holy Spirit power.

TEEN TOPICS

We’ve each been blessed—and cursed—with a specific, complex temperament. While our personality is unique, we recognize similar patterns and traits in diverse Bible characters.
