Riptide Faith

The world’s pull is strong...

Even if we are strong Christians, it can sweep us away—like a riptide—in the blink of an eye. It can push Jesus’s Word and authority from view, pulling us, our loved ones and our faith down with it.

… Can you think of a time when God has shown up for you?

Join Jared and his family for the retelling of a "scary" trip to the beach in this first-ever 'Be the Church' video-podcast: Riptide Faith.

Be bold! Share your testimony in the comments below! Your experience might be the jolt of hope and encouragement someone out there is needing to read.

“For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” — 1 John 5:4

About the author

Hey—I'm Jared. Along with my high-school honeybee turned wife, Michelle, we are parents to: Victory, Gemma and River—three children every bit as unique as their names. With friends and family by our sides, I want to travel through life merged onto God’s freeway. I want to hear the whispers of the Holy Spirit and—wise with ignorance—act upon them. I want to enter Heaven (one day) and hear a rousing of laughter—with me, not at me. Not for all the times I fell, but for every time He stood me back up and pushed me on... To boldly go where no Christian has agreed to go before… This is who and where I want to be... These are the kinds of stories I want to share.
