Why did you choose to join Search? I chose to join Search because it is my firmly held belief that relationships are the most effective way to share out faith. I have since grown to love the conversational approach and style. I’m also taken by the idea of inviting people “to take a next step toward God”. To me, that’s how the whole thing works.
