In this podcast series of Breaking Bread, Ted Witzig Jr helps us understand the nature of identity formation and how we can better steward this area of our life.

Biblical Decision Making

There are few things that Christians struggle with more than knowing God’s will.

Learn more regarding the obvious and subtle factors that affect decision making in these decision-making resources.

ABIDE

From its beginning, this discipleship program has focused on providing practical tools and training that, by God’s grace, enable believers to walk a deeper, more transformative life as disciples of Jesus. Our aim is to take the “ought to-dos” from Christian ministry and complete them with the “how to-dos.” We invite you to come set aside a period of intentional time to find refreshment in Jesus, growth in Christ-likeness, and equipping to draw others into The Way of Jesus.
