It was Thursday night.
Thursday before Good Friday.
Jesus could have prayed about anything He wanted to.
He chose what He believed was most important.
He chose our unity (not uniformity) as the overarching focus of His passionate prayer in John 17.
We can’t out-strategize Jesus.

J17 Ministries exists to encourage strategic and prioritized alignment with what Jesus believed was of primary importance. The key to people discovering who He really was and how much God loves them would be our humble, visible, border-less love for one another as His followers.

J17 Ministries is a big idea with very practical local implications.
The big idea? Our unity in the body of Christ is Jesus’ strategy for fulfilling the Great Commission. The more divided the world gets, the more strategic John 17 becomes. J17 Ministries leads or supports practical opportunities to align with Jesus’ heartbeat: for pastors and for everyone.

Our divided and broken world has never needed this good news more.
