The Origins Project

Ancient Text. Present Context. Future Textures.

“For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God…” (Acts 5:38-39 NIV)

Our Passions: Jesus, Humanity, and Innovation

  • Jesus: Jesus and the inspired Scriptures are our guide for everything we do.
  • Humanity: God's extreme love for people infuses this mission with urgency.
  • Innovation: Creativity will be normative for our mission.
First major Origins event - Los Angeles, July 22-24 2010
We have a date for our first major Origins event. It will be in Los Angeles on July 22-24, 2010. We will be announcing more details, but this will be an event that will be more of a festival than a "conference". It will have times of teaching, sharing, art, film, music, spoken word, poetry, think tanks, creating and dreaming together about the mission of Jesus and how we can be fully engaged in the world for the sake of others. We will be sharing more in the months ahead, but wanted to announce the date and place. (information from the Origins newsletter)
I've had the privilege over the years to know & learn from the folks & the churches at the heart of this community - and they mean what they say. I can't recommend connecting into this highly enough - check out The Origins Project.
