What would your life look like if you were completely available to God?

Any Time Any Where At Any Cost To Do Any Thing

Dear Jesus, I want you in the center of my life and I commit, through your power, to serve and obey you any time, any where, at any cost, to do any thing. That is a powerful commitment. Evangelism is best done in the context of relationships. The great news is that Christians already have relationships with just about every Canadian. So the shift is going from a life centered on ourselves to a life focused on serving others. You can change the spiritual direction of Canada. Reach your world by going on a Faith Adventure. Throughout this guide, you’ll find ways to impact the people around you – whether it’s your family, your neighbour, your colleague or your entire community. Some of these Faith Adventures will help you get your feet wet, and others will require you to jump right in. Are you ready to engage with God’s vision for your life and our nation?

Get your church involved Inspire your church to make theLife™ commitment and impact your community.

A Good Place to Start Start spiritual conversations

Burst your bubble

Soul Cravings Prequel

A Relationship Revolution

A simple conversation can change a life. But, sometimes, starting a meaningful dialogue about faith can be a daunting task. Soul Cravings Prequel by Erwin Raphael McManus is a doorway to a conversation‌ to help you begin one, to help you go deeper, or for your friends to engage in online whenever they are ready. Explore universal desires for intimacy, destiny and meaning in life with your friends, family and neighbours by giving the book away. Watch Crave: The Documentary to be inspired and challenged to talk about God with anyone, wherever you are.

If you’re passionate about your faith, are you talking about it? Do you converse with people about everything from books to politics to fashion, but never about God or your spiritual journey? Bursting Your Bubble: A Relationship Revolution is a 7-week DVD series designed to inspire and equip you to get out of your Christian bubble, build transforming relationships, begin spiritual conversations and find the words to share your life story. You can also lead the training in your home or church to empower others to impact those around them.
