Vision

The Eighteen Inch Journey, Phase II, is a six-month school of transformation, devoted to the development of the whole person - body, soul and spirit. Together, we are pursuing the growth of powerful and balanced lives in submission to Jesus, unto overflow that changes the earth.

In considering your application, we are looking for those who are committed and READY to do the work it takes to live and cultivate a whole-hearted life. These six months are a deeper dive into all of the rhythms and values introduced during the Eighteen Inch Journey Phase I. Our focus for wholeness and transformation is a Body, Soul and Spirit Connection.  We have created an environment for transformation that is rooted in the saving work of the Gospel. We believe that what you get out of it is entirely up to you. We cannot want your wholeness more than you want it!
