Discernment is where prayer and action meet.


Where leaders can learn to listen to God and discern next steps in the context of community.

Created Space is for business and ministry leaders who are on the edge of a pivot or who perceive a shift in their purpose or direction. It is a consecrated space where we learn (or remember) how to listen and to discern the next right step.


Enter a collaborative space where business leaders and creative entrepreneurs can process decisions, gain insight and discern next steps.
