"But God can also turn the desert into watery pools, thirsty ground into watery springs..."

- Psalm 107:35

An Oasis is "a place between."  It is a place of rest.  It is a place of growth.  It is a place of life in the middle of a desert.

Oasis is also the Network's online gathering.  It is a place between where we are now, and where God is leading us.  It is a place of refreshment, renewal, learning and connection.  

Twice this year, members of the Network are invited to come together for an online gathering.  Together, we will renew, learn and connect.  

Cost for Network Members (Plus level or higher):  Free!

Cost for non-members and Basic Members:  $25
