BE TRANSFORMED BY THE WORD AND THE SPIRIT IN COMMUNITY
- A guided process of prayer, worship, individual biblical reflection, prayerful conversation in community, and application.
- A resource page with links to worship songs, videos, and other carefully curated media to engage the spirit, mind, and heart through 16 sessions of Bible study.
- A journey that starts before creation in Ephesians 1 and ends at the renewal of all things in Revelation 21.
- Right brains rejoice: the workbook has bullet journal spaces, not lines.
- Questions designed not only to illuminate the scriptures, but also to allow people to support one another as they come into agreement with the word and the God of the word.
- A beautiful project of writing and sharing a short confession of faith after looking at historical Christian creeds.
- The process is designed to establish participants in the story of the Gospel and help them articulate it, as well as to live out foundational steps in responding to the Gospel as disciples of Jesus.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Hi! We are Tim and Laurie Thornton, a husband and wife team with a decade-long history in music ministry, missions, discipleship, and equipping believers through unique retreats and ongoing training environments. Together we work to empower God’s people as they seek the kingdom and live into their destiny as a worshiping family that makes disciples and extends the dominion of God wherever they go. Currently we are enjoying shepherding a local church of multiplying missional communities in Colorado Springs called Kindred Collective as we raise our own 3 children.
The Reorient resources and retreats were born out of the desire for every person in our church family to be confident not only in proclaiming the gospel but also in applying gospel foundations to their own lives. After a few rounds of use and refinement, the Reorient Study has become a catechetical resource for our community—for both new and seasoned believers—that rehearses the core gospel/story of God, establishes foundations for how we begin to live into the way of Jesus as a community, and introduces and explains the significance of sacraments like the Lord’s supper and baptism. We hope the Reorient resources and retreats will be of great use to you as they have been for us.
