Why are we here? What’s life all about? 

Sometimes we get so caught up in the depth of our faith that we forget what it was like to first wrestle with the big questions – Who am I? What am I searching for? What’s our shared story? Who is Jesus? Why do we need a Church? Is there a God? We all need to get back to the basics to make sure the foundation is strong.

We are excited to introduce The Search, a new seven part Augustine Institute Original Series with the goal of lighting that first fire in those who don’t yet know the faith or reigniting the fire in those who need a primer on the foundational questions. The Search is now on all Parish FORMED subscription at no additional chargehere.






Don’t go through The Search alone. It is most powerfully experienced when discussed with others.

The Search Parish Guide will help a group discuss and begin to share deeply. It will also help participants become future leaders so The Search multiplies in your community. 

A Men’s Small Group Guide and Women’s Small Group Guide are available for men’s and women’s groups that have already been meeting together.
