NorthStar is a two-year training program for men and women to train in the essentials for navigating the Christian life in today's culture, offered at 17:6 Network churches.

Ephesians 5:15-17 says, “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.”

Paul highlights the importance of intentionality in the way we walk: to "look carefully". We are to pay close attention to situations and do what Christ wants, not just "generally", but specifically in detail.  Harold Bullock
