Shift: Small Changes, Big Difference


Although painful at times, struggle often signifies the beginning of change.

Whether it’s relationship issues, financial concerns, bad habits, we all struggle. And fortunately, we all have the God-given power to shift our focus, our perspective and our priorities, which can lead to exciting life changes. But why do this alone?

Shift is a seven-week spiritual growth program in which participants learn about themselves, about God, and about how to make shifts in their lives. The program draws on the Jacob story from the Old Testament. Here is your chance to offer your struggles before the Lord, and watch them turn to blessings.

Start your own exploration with our free email program, containing inspiration, explanation, reflections, and tasks. The program will help you discover new spiritual insights about your life and will help you feel closer to the Lord. Or start your own small group in your church or community, using the Shift workbook.
