You have begun the great journey home.

This path we walk together is narrow, and often difficult. Along the way, we are faced with many challenges, distractions and disappointments. At times, we will be tempted to give in or give up.

Jesus is the motivation, strength and power to finish this journey.

He has gone before us, and as we look to Him, He will lead us home. BASECAMP is a rest stop on this journey.

Assemble at BASECAMP. Renew your strength for the journey home.
