Ultimate Journey II

After unpacking self-deception through Phase 1, Phase 2 helps students discover God’s solution for their lives as they explore the incredible love relationship God desires to have with them. In Phase 2, students will come to understand the eternal covenant that God entered on their behalf and how God is committed to meeting every one of their needs. As a result, students will be able to stop striving and trying to prove their worth or meet their own needs and be able to move beyond the hopelessness of never feeling good enough in order to experience peace and rest.
