Be Like Jesus

Take the 40-Day Being Challenge designed to help you grow in your relationship with God and be like Jesus.

Practice the Habits of Jesus

Find Joy in Relationship with God

Discover Purpose Being with God

A strong relationship with God solves everything

The most important target to hit as a disciple of Jesus is BEING in a relationship with Him. We know what it’s like to have the desire to grow in our relationship with God and yet feel stagnant. Being Challenge leads readers to a stronger relationship with God through simple challenges that focus on the 5 keystone habits of Jesus: community, scripture, prayer, solitude and church.

Being Challenge is for Every Ministry

Find fulfillment and purpose through challenges that are simple and practical. Memorable targets and daily challenges will help you gain momentum.

Being Challenge will help kids instill the keystone habits of Jesus in these faith-formative years! There are no better habits to learn as children grow and mature.

Grow your church. Grow your small groups. Unify around the words of Jesus. Start a movement with done-for-you resources and join the hundreds of churches who have seen God work powerfully through RLC.

Purpose & Intention​

After the challenge is completed, you will have gained a greater understanding of keystone habits that will help you continue to grow in your relationship with God. Through all of this being, you will become a greater doer of what Jesus calls, commands, and asks of you.

How is Being Challenge Different?

We know what it’s like to live in this world, to have success and still feel empty, and to still be longing for something more. Being Challenge offers practical habits and behaviors for Christian living and we keep the language simple. Whether you join a 40-day challenge as an individual or a church, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the ways of Jesus and discover purpose and fulfillment in the journey.

What Church Leaders are Saying

“After completing Red Letter Challenge two years ago, our congregation was very excited to do the Being Challenge this Lent. Our participation rate was even higher than for Red Letter Challenge, and it gave the congregation something to be excited about.”

Chris Kollmann

Lutheran Church of the Redeemer

“How do you find common ground in a deeply divided culture? Zach Zehnder’s focus on the words and habits of Jesus have unified congregations and people in a deeply needed way. Taking your church through Being Challenge might be the best thing you can do right now. Culture divides. Christ unites.”

Carey Nieuwhof

Founding Pastor of Connexus Church, Author and Speaker
