2017 18 Inch Journey Phase One Reference Form

The 18 Inch Journey is a discipleship school, focused on teaching students to cultivate a lifestyle of wholeness and daily transformation by the love of God.  Proverbs 4:23 says, “Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life.”  We believe that the heart is the center of everything, and our goal is to empower students in the stewardship of their hearts, and in tending their relationships with the Trinity and with others.  We teach this through discipleship, creativity, worship, and community.  Our dream is to see a generation liberated by God's love, living radical lives of wholeheartedness in every season.
