Doubt: Deconstruction + Jesus

series resources

You’re invited to doubt…

If you’re struggling with difficult parts in the Bible or with some of the concepts taught in church—you’re not alone. Doubt is part of faith. You need a safe place to wrestle with your questions about faith, and we want to be that for you. Pat answers and quick fixes won’t work: We want to help you get to the root of your doubts and then, by God’s grace, rebuild something stronger.

Bring your questions and doubts. In this teaching series, we’ll deconstruct—and reconstruct—together.
