H2O Network | Summer intensive

What if COVID-19 has set us up better than ever to stay connected over the summer months? Being on video calls isn’t always fun and doing church from our living rooms still seems strange, but we have learned to make it work. So let’s take this virtual momentum and leverage it for a summer of pursuing God together. 

The H2O Network Summer Intensive is an 8-week experience designed to deepen our relational connection with one another and develop us into men and women who walk intimately with our God. Among the many lessons COVID-19 has taught us, maybe the biggest is that God and His mission cannot be stopped. He is still pursuing us, transforming us. This summer is designed to position you to receive from the God who is matchless in power.

Let’s be honest: summer is always a little weird. We move back home. Or we stay in town and wonder when everyone is coming back. We get jobs and work long hours. Or we suffer through summer classes. It’s always a season of transition, of the in-between. Add to that the losses and frustrations that COVID-19 has ushered into our lives and it may seem like a summer destined for spiritual dryness and relational disconnect. But our God has a way of meeting us in the in-between and speaking new and fresh truths into our lives. 

The theme for the summer is: Sit. Listen. Respond. As we live in transition, step into new realities, and face new challenges, we are more desperate than ever to hear the voice of God. But in order to listen, we must first learn to sit. And after we have heard Him speak, we have to act in obedience. It’s never enough to do one or two of these things. The rhythm of soul formation and gospel courage rides on all three.

Dates & Details

The Summer Intensive will launch on Thursday, June 4 with a main session and will end with a celebration gathering on Thursday, July 23. We will not offer workshops on the weekend of Independence Day.

We are asking that you commit to the Intensive so that we have continuity in our groups and a strong shared experience. We expect the time commitment to total 10 hours per week. Half of those hours will come from the program’s content and the other half will come as we engage individually with the challenges and disciplines we discuss each week.

  • Main session + discipleship group: 2 hours
  • Life group: 1.5 hours
  • Workshop: 1.5 hours
  • Living out what you’re learning: 5 hours

There is no registration fee or cost to the intensive. 


The Summer Intensive will be delivered through individual churches and will contain elements of network-wide connection. Each local church will arrange its own groups and appoint leaders for them.  Individual churches will make decisions related to the delivery of this program within their already existing structures and plans for the summer months.

Registration will be administered by each individual church as well. Please check our LOCATIONS page for a link to an individual church website.
