God Has More For You

The Trellis invites you to walk deeper into this mystery of Christ's life formed in you through the work of spiritual formation: The active formation of your whole self—heart, soul, mind, and strength—into the likeness of Jesus. You'll learn how truth, practices, community, and the Holy Spirit can help shape you as you discern the next step prepared for you by His grace.

Wherever you are in your walk with Jesus, God has more for you—more of Himself to pour out, His likeness to impart, His faithfulness to steady you, and His power to meet you in your weaknesses. Join us as we journey toward Him.
You're invited to a formation community of saints walking in the way of Jesus.
