Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The purpose of Quest is to serve the Church by providing a place and a process to encounter Truth and jump-start hearts that want to and need to come alive. No matter how alive we are, there is always more life to discover. The abundant life Jesus unfolds in John 10:10 is eternal and infinite, yet we can begin to experience it here and now. Quest events serve as the launching pad for anyone inclined to pursue more life.

Fellowship of the Sword serves the church by facilitating catalytic encounters that Uncover Truth, Unlock Identity, and Unleash Passion.

From these life-changing experiences, we see people truly live free.

The Quest events were born out of a vision to facilitate an experience with God that would have life-long impact.

Events are held for men and women an average of three times a month, every month except December, in locations across five different states in the USA, as well as several countries around the world.

We are currently pursuing the development of a Life Lodge in North Texas. We have impacted over 6000 people to date and seek to expand globally to at least one additional state in the USA and two additional nations in 2019.
