Joy Starts Here


Have you ever asked yourself “What is it that I’m really looking for in life?” We search for meaning  in our families, careers or religion. Behind our search is a deep desire to experience true joy.


What is true joy?

Why is it that joy is so elusive?

And what can we do to experience it more fully?

Can it really change our relationships and our lives?


Find out at the first ever Joy Starts Here! Conference, coming to Los Angeles on June 6-7.


Joy Starts Here! draws from Scripture and the latest brain science for powerful transformation.  Participants will experience real joy and practice fun ways to share joy with others.


Don’t miss this opportunity!  Seating is limited, so reserve your place now.

There are three paths a young Jewish man can take to become a religious professional in the first century. As far as we can tell, neither Jesus nor the 12 disciples took any of these routes.

Jesus and the 12 are laypeople.

Why does this matter?

We all get to play…

Mark 3:13-19
