Learning to Live Every Day with Jesus
Apprentice — one who is learning by practical experience under a master, a skill, art, or calling
While many of us may know what it means to put our faith in Jesus, we may have never experienced what it means to become His apprentices. The Apprentice Conference explores how living each day with Jesus can transform our lives.
What does it mean to have an everyday relationship with Jesus, especially in the chaotic and busy world in which most of us live? How can living as He did lead us into an interactive relationship with our Father in heaven? How can walking with Jesus each day transform the way we think and the way we live?
Join us for a stimulating, relatable and very practical conference with James Bryan Smith, author of the Apprentice Series: The Good and Beautiful God, The Good and Beautiful Life, and The Good and Beautiful Community.
