what is it?

What if COVID-19 has set us up better than ever to stay connected over the summer months? Being on video calls isn’t always fun and doing church from our living rooms still seems strange, but we have learned to make it work. So let’s take this virtual momentum and leverage it for a summer of pursuing God together.

The H2O Network Summer Intensive is an 8-week experience designed to deepen our relational connection with one another and develop us into men and women who walk intimately with our God. Among the many things COVID-19 has taught us, maybe the biggest thing is that God and His mission cannot be stopped. He is still pursuing us, transforming us. This summer is designed to position you to receive from the God who matchless in power.

What is the theme?

The theme for the summer is: Sit. Listen. Respond. As we live in transition, step into new realities, and face new challenges, we are more desperate than ever to hear the voice of God. But in order to listen, we must first learn to sit. And after we have heard Him speak, we have to act in obedience. It’s never enough to do one or two of these things. The rhythm of soul formation and gospel courage rides on all three.

What does it involve?


These sessions are the core of the Summer Intensive and will include worship, testimonies, and a teaching that will lead straight in Life Groups our church. All of these will be live streamed from one of of the H2O churches (find the link at the bottom of this page) and then we will break off into our normal Life Groups using Zoom. If you haven't been attending Life Group and need to know how to join one please contact Zach Obrecht.



Staff from the various H2O churches will offer workshops on topics related to the overarching theme of hearing from God. The hope is that we can cover a greater breadth and depth of content that we can during a main session. Each Workshop will only be offered once, so be sure to pay attention each week as we announce the topics.

This week's topics are listed below.
