San Jose, CA
Join us for a catalytic 1-day event for young professionals in Saratoga, California. Our hope is that God would awaken us to a deeper relationship with Jesus, a vision for our part to play in the world, and a passion for generosity.
Life is so busy and full. It can be hard to slow down. But on this one day we want to create space in a beautiful environment to be refreshed through time with God and one another.
Think of this like a 1-day vacation, but instead of sitting on a beach, you'll be at a beautiful California villa with a fun group of twenty and thirtysomethings
We'll sit under great teaching, enjoy catered meals, premiere a short film, and end our day in an amazing outdoor ampitheater, worshiping our glorious God.
