Our Story

The Integrated Life began in the Summer of 2011 when three friends gathered to formulate a training workshop to help people discover their identity in Christ and how that could overflow in service congruent to whom God created that person to be. We continue to develop The Integrated Life approach into an online training and software platform as a ministry resource to church leaders who share our desire to help transform lives that worship God in all things, serve others in  love, and authentically sharing our Christ restoring witness to a confused culture.
