eXPeriencing Faith

XP3 (the "orange"-based strategy for middle & high school) stands for eXPerience 3. The “3” are wonder, discovery and passion—the three things every student should experience in life. Three things that even adults need. Wonder stirs our souls; it’s the feeling we get when we stand before the ocean. Wonder propels us into discovery. It’s the why behind the “Wow!” We internalize and process how this affects us, how it relates to us. Passion is the more—we discover and learn and know and we can’t get enough. Passion drives us and affects how we relate to others. See promo VIDEO (click).

Imagine your student confronted with the awe of God. Think about them discovering how God unfolds throughout all of life: their identities, their relationships, their calling, their jobs, their education, their romances. Now think about that same student passionate about God and others. He is real and He is all they want, yet they realize that it’s not just about God and them. He wants us to love and care for others the same way He loves and cares for us.

Where We’re Going

So what do wonder, discovery and passion look like in our everyday lives? Here’s a glimpse of how they can be defined in our lives.

  • WONDER: I am created to pursue and authentic relationship with my Creator.
  • DISCOVERY: I belong to Jesus Christ and define who I am by what He says.
  • PASSION: I exist every day to demonstrate God’s love to a broken world.
