In a fallen world, pain is a reality. None of us escape unscarred. We often feel out of place, searching for somewhere to belong. There is something inside of us that craves redemption, because we were made in the image of a God who is at work redeeming creation.
The purpose of the Redemption Tour is to awaken people to the reality that God wants to meet them in the middle of their greatest fear and deepest pain, that He wants to redeem the negative events of their lives into something beautiful that can bring healing to others. We believe that God wants to do extraordinary things in and through each one of us, but we often miss out on what He is doing when it comes in ways we don’t expect. We tend to look for the next big thing, but what if God wants to meet us right in the middle of our everyday—even mundane—lives?
The Redemption Tour will take place from July to November 2015. Check out our schedule below to see when we will be near you! A gathering will consist of worship, a talk from Jared Stump, time for reflection and ministry, and an opportunity to connect with the team over coffee.
