Overview SUBTITLE: Living Courageously in a Spineless Culture
Community Description The only risk in life is not taking one! It doesn't matter where you are in life as every stage and position in life presents the opportunity to risk something valuable for God. Twentysomethings pastor J.R. Briggs investigates the lives of Bible characters often not talked about, like Philip, Jeremiah, and Nathan, but who demonstrate some of the greatest examples of world-changing risk found in the Bible. Now it's your turn. What's God calling you to do? When God calls you to follow His will, don't be afraid to take the chance to live with a reckless abandon for Him. The time has come to embrace your fear and jump!
