How are people experiencing the Online JOG?

I certainly came away with more imagination for what courageous generosity can look like - now and over a lifetime.
The videos were excellent, the pacing was good, the timing was appropriate … I didn’t know if an online deal like this would be effective, but thought that it went very well … We would love to continue the dialogue to see about sharing this with others.

On a scale of 1-10, how likely are you to recommend this experience to a friend?

10. Loved it.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this experience. It felt like the right pace, good conversation, slow and still restful . . . not like I was taking an online course.
People are hungry for this conversation. It’s relevant and timely. A grace-filled call to the body of Christ to arise and reflect Christ to a hurting world.
