Imagine an authentic relationship with God.

It starts with heart’s desire for ‘something more’: Sometimes a brassy, unruly longing; or a reluctant inner stirring; or a quiet dissatisfaction when life is going well.

We have to sort out who God really is, letting go of inadequate and distorted images, and risking new possibilities.

This is friendship, not religion. It is not about knowing all the answers, having it all together, or anxiously performing to earn approval. It starts with God meeting us in the ‘mess of our unfixedness’ and calling us ‘Beloved.’

Welcome to Theodyssey, a made up word (aren’t they all?): a combination of theos, God, and odyssey, a wandering and eventful journey. We help others on their own wandering, eventful journey with God.

We do Christian spiritual formation, the messy but authentic process of being conformed to the image of Jesus for the sake of others.

Stories are the heartbeat of Theodyssey.

We have the privilege of witnessing people break through barriers and truly experience Jesus. We invite you to see how ordinary lives have been transformed and celebrate with us!

Melissa’s Story

“I was a prisoner to an unfading memory, paralyzed by shame. I could believe that God loved me unconditionally. Except for that one condition. It was my hidden scarlet letter.”
