​​Why Oasis Might be Right For You! ​​

Why do people come? Why when they come to one program, do they often come back for more? For some, it is straight forward--they are looking for training in spiritual direction or contemplation. We offer quality training in those areas, so they come and treasure what they find. But for others it is far from straight forward. They feel a draw toward a deeper walk with God and are really looking to find a community, where that desire resonates on the faces of others as they speak it into the opening circle. Or they have some notion of wanting to be able to lovingly listen to others around spiritual matters and come hoping to be equipped in that way. Some want to take their prayer to new levels of communion. Some come wanting to balance seminary academics with immersion into the mystery of God. Some have walked from church without walking from Spirit and seek to grow and integrate their spiritual life in new ways and learn from other seekers on the path.

 What draws you? What tugs at your heart and spirit? What would it mean to deepen your trust right there? Know from Oasis, if you come we will meet you where you are and surround you with a loving, safe, and contemplative learning community. More than anything else, that is what Oasis offers.

Anastasia -"uprising"- is the Greek word for Christ's resurrection. With all my heart I believe Jesus' "uprising" has societal and personal effects, for life now and eternally. For two Saturdays in a row we've witnessed youth uprisings: On March 24 we witnessed...
