Face to Face: Divine Encounters

A Gateway Series

How we view God affects every area of our lives. It shapes how we feel about Him, how we talk about Him, and even how we talk to Him. But God is divine and we’re only human, so how do we discover who He is, how He acts, and what He’s like? In the 10-part series, Pastor Robert looks at real people whose lives were changed when they came face-to-face with Jesus. And as you get to know God better, your life will be transformed!
