Vibrant Faith Ministries
We recognize that followers of Jesus need to change their practices and how they organize themselves in order to remain faithful, relevant and life transforming for these times.
We are "striving" to live a vibrant faith because God's Spirit is never completely done with us. We are always being renewed and called to make a difference in Jesus' name. We do this work in a "dynamic world." Everything is rapidly changing around us. There is no longer a "one-size-fits-all" when it comes to faith, so we must serve as curators, dialogue partners, consultants, coaches, cheerleaders and researchers to further the work of God's kingdom.

Located on a dry plateau about a mile inland from the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea, Qumran was constructed during the reign of the Hasmonean ruler John Hyrcanus, 134-104 BC. It saw various phases of occupation until, probably after the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD, it was destroyed by the Roman army commanded by Titus. It is best known as the settlement nearest the caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were hidden.
7 Cities of Revelation
Chapters 2 and 3 of Revelation, the final book of the Bible, consist of letters to seven churches in what was the Roman province of Asia, today western Turkey.
