With the increase in technology, our societies have become increasingly socially isolated. Join Justin and Patrick as they share stories and observations on the impact healthy relationships lead to community, and how a healthy community can take you places you never thought possible.

Many thought they were foolish for attempting to walk 500 miles along the Camino de Santiago with Justin living life from a wheelchair. Some even told them they couldn’t accomplish it. For Justin and Patrick, the trek was something they had to do. Knowing full well that they could not be successful on their own, they set out with one wheelchair and two backpacks. Their faith was rewarded as they navigated the vast terrain of Spain, and they continue to take each step of life in faith. Join them as they explore moving from a posture of fear to standing triumphant in faith.
