Foundations: Intimacy with Jesus

About the Course

Jesus is a Bridegroom King, and He is returning for a Bride. Jesus is longing for the Church to come into her identity as a Bride—a close, intimate partner. In this course, we will talk about God’s great affections for us and how we can practically grow in friendship and intimacy with Jesus. This class will equip students to grow in relationship with God in any context or vocation.

August 21–September 15
