Chosen to Bear Fruit

Episode 7 | May 4, 2021

“The Master Gardener is perfect in His work. He is perfect in His pruning. He never makes a mistake; There is nothing that He is going to go after in your life that will not result in even more fruit.” 

Today’s Episode

Is living from a place of rest truly possible? How do we faithfully walk through seasons of pruning and discipline? What does it take to bear healthy fruit?

Join Kelly as she walks through the 7th I AM statement of Jesus, “I Am the True Vine.” Your life was meant to matter. You’re called to bear much fruit—fruit that will impact generations.
