The Drama of Scripture with Phil Darke!
Phil is a connector, catalyst, collaborator, coach of coaches, facilitator of flourishing, certified DISC human behavior consultant, high school soccer coach, and ministry leader. He hosts 3 podcasts: How Soccer Explains Leadership (howsoccerexplainsleadership.com), Coaching Character (theplaymakers.org), and ThinkOrphan (thinkorphan.com). Phil is the author and editor of In Pursuit of Orphan Excellence and the President/CEO of Providence World working to transform communities by developing organizations to ensure children and families flourish. We’re excited to have Phil Darke with us to unpack the big picture narrative of the Bible and why it matters to us.
“It has been said that Christopher Columbus didn’t know where he was going when he left, didn’t know where he was when he got there and didn’t know where he had been when he got home.”
Unfortunately, this is also true of many of our experiences with Scripture. We know parts of it. We read it in bits, in fits and starts. We have our favorite parts. But we have no idea how it fits together.
The Bible isn’t simply a book of quotations that we pick and choose to make us feel good. It tells a GRAND STORY OF ALL HISTORY. It’s a story about God’s people in God’s place under God’s rule, enjoying God’s blessing. And we get to be a part of it.
Finding a community as a single or married young professional can be challenging and we want to change that—we are committed to growing our relationship with Jesus and building ties amongst our peers through intentional conversations, courageous authenticity, and serious fun. Please come as you are, we look forward to meeting you!
What is YP?
Bayside Folsom Young Professionals is a group of like-minded adults (ages 25-35) who have recently entered their careers and are trying to navigate the next stage of life. We seek to make an impact for Christ everywhere we go by how we live and interact with friends, family, and colleagues. We have weekly small groups and monthly large group “Meet-Ups” in addition to other fun and service events. We are peer led and always looking to invite new people into our community! If you are between the ages of 25-35, YP is for you. Want to get connected before you arrive? Text “YPFolsom” to 56316, and we’ll be in touch!
