what is priority living?

A monthly gathering at the Capital Club in downtown San Jose, (but currently virtual due to Covid19) featuring marketplace speakers, networking, and small group interactions to nourish and equip people for life and work.

why does priority living exist?

Silicon Valley is the cradle of technology, startups, VC funding, and innovation. While none of these are evils in themselves, money and notoriety often drive their success. As a result, money and success are gods in the Bay Area. Tech companies and businesses set the pace and culture in the Valley. Real estate is ridiculous. People hustle to scratch out a living. And distractions abound. 

Priority Living exists to help people reorder their lives putting GOD first, FAMILY second, WORK third, and CHURCH 4th. 

HOW DO YOU HELP PEOPLE PRIORITIZE THEIR LIVES?

  1. TEACHING – Every month we bring in top notch communicatorsw hose faith is mature and practical. We believe the priorities of life are clearly outlined in scripture. Through strong biblical teaching we believe we can reorder our lives to reflect the priorities of the Bible and in turn help others to do the same. 
  2. MENTORING/MODEL FAITH IN CHRIST – We are relational people. We need each other. No man or woman is an island. Isolation causes depression and anxiety. By mentoring and modeling our faith in Christ, we provide an environment of love, acceptance, and accountability. 
  3. IMMERSION/SERVICE – Sometimes we just need to jump right in. That’s the best way to learn and grow. As Jesus sent out his 12 diciples two by two to preach the gospel, heal the sick, and bring goodness into the world, we will do the same. We affirm the Great Commission, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded of you.”
