Introducing Their Story to God's Story.
The connection between Their Story and God’s Story is about introducing my friend Jesus to my friends who don’t know him yet. “For Christ love compels us because we are convinced that one died for all and therefore all died. And he died for all that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died and was raised.” 2 Cor. 5:14-15
