Joy. We are designed for it. We live our entire lives in search of it. Joy Starts Here takes a closer look at joy as a critical, relational component to restoring hope and changing communities. Learn how predators destroy community and how to have a tender heart towards weakness. Joy Starts Here is for people who feel stuck and do not know how to start moving towards relational wholeness.
In this 11-week class, you will learn to build joy and shalom through readings and interactive lessons. Joy Starts Here teaches how to interact with God so you can see yourself and others as he does, exploring pathways to biblical joy and strengthening your resilience for dealing with life’s challenges.
