The River Leap of Faith
by: Blue Ocean Faith • 0
"The Leap of Faith is probably the best thing we’ve done as a church, in my opinion, in the past several years. And, our Easter service, which we used to tell testimonies about the Leap of Faith, was the best church service that I’ve ever been to in my whole entire life – no joke or exaggeration" -- Ryan Wobbrock, Brooklyn
The Leap of Faith is a six week faith experiment (during the Lenten Season) of prayer and fasting designed to foster deeper intimacy and relationship with God. The "Leap of Faith" started around this time almost 10 years ago when we stumbled upon this surprisingly-powerful idea—that banding together as a whole church to believe God for new things in our own lives and in our church had a lot of power! So many prayers were answered, and the overall Lenten Season was such a powerful experience that we have done one every year since!
Each Leap of Faith follows a specific theme where participants are encouraged to ask the following three questions: "What would you like Jesus to do for you?" "What would you like Jesus to do for the people around you?" "What would you like Jesus to do for your community?" The theme and hope for this year's Leap of Faith is that all of us would experience the love of Jesus in a fresh and powerful way. In pursuing that idea, we thought it would be fun to band together and participate in something called "The Jesus Project" where collectively we dream of experiencing Jesus through things we could try--through "projects" of sorts. The sermon series will focus around this theme and the daily Bible Guide will take us through the gospel of John.
