But you feel like you’re missing something.

You’re in a group.

You go to church most Sundays.

But you just don’t know what you can do to make your relationship with God deeper.


Connect with God was designed to help.

Life is busy and spiritual growth requires practices that take time and seem to only have a limited effect. It’s hard to appreciate their long-term impact on us when don’t see immediate results.

Core Practices

We have identified three spiritual practices that form a core to all spiritual practices. These three are something we believe all Christians should always be actively practices, while some of the others are more periodically used. If one of these is not part of your current routine, we’d highly recommend you begin here.


The Spiritual Practices

While reading the Bible, praying, and building community with other believers are core practices of spiritual growth, Scripture records many other practices that are too often ignored today. And those practices have the power to enhance our experience of the Bible, prayer, and community.

To keep things simple, we've divided those practices in two categories:

  1. Practices of Engagement involve doing new things that will draw you closer to God.

  2. Practices of Restraint involve stopping some of the things you’re currently doing, either temporarily or permanently, in order to draw you closer to God.


Practices of Engagement

Prayer • Bible Reading • Generosity • Service
Community • Accountability • Worship

Practices of Restraint

Sabbath • Solitude • Secrecy
Chastity • Fasting
