12 Apostles Journey
The Story Begins...
Life is a journey full of twists and turns. You never know for sure what is waiting for you around the corner, but God does.
He’s always there for you. Trust Him. He is worthy.
The Heart Behind the Project
People usually picture Jesus as someone who lived over 2,000 years ago; so how could Jesus possibly relate to what we’re experiencing in our lives today? The culture is so different.
The answer is, Jesus can! His messages are timeless, and they lead to eternity. In fact, He opened eternity for all who follow Him!
We thought we knew how to live just fine on our own with careers that brought great worldly success and acclaim . . . enviable by many. Yet, it turned out to lack significance. That is when Jesus met us and forever changed our lives. Now God has called us to be a messenger for Him to you.
Our Vision for the Project
It was clear that God wanted us to use Catholic education and creativity and combine them with our unique storytelling skills to show the relevance of Jesus and His messages in today’s modern world. Our educational classes show how Jesus still interacts with regular people like you and me.
In 2017, with the blessing of my wife, Sandy, I put my 25 year career on hold to embark on this journey.
After 2 years of planning, we began production. No expense was spared. It had to be done with excellence to be worthy of our lord and savior, Jesus Christ.
When my wife and I agreed to quadruple the development budget, we had no idea where this journey would take us.
The project suddenly became 'Catholic Online School'… a journey in which we would learn to trust in God’s provision since we could no longer trust in our own.
Would we do it again?
Catholic Online School has been the most difficult challenge we’ve faced; yet, by far the most rewarding. Looking back, I discovered that God had been honing our skills throughout our career for this moment in time…for this project.
Jesus wanted our hearts and for us to know his. It has been a relentless pursuit - not by us, but by Him!
Jesus said that we should count the costs before following Him. Had Sandy and I known the costs beforehand, perhaps we wouldn’t have gone. Yet now, the reward of knowing Jesus is greater than all the riches in the world.
As the Apostle Paul said, 'More than that, I even consider everything as a loss because of the supreme good of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have accepted the loss of all things and I consider them so much rubbish, that I may gain Christ.' (NAB Philippians 3:8)
