God’s creation tells the story and teaches us in simple and complex ways. Punch and Press wants to dig deep into the lessons God has for us.
TO PUNCH in winemaking is a technique of breaking up and mixing the cap (grape skins, stems and seeds) with the juice to produce a wine with a better color, taste, and aroma.
TO PRESS is the process in which the juice is extracted from the grapes, or oil is extracted from the olive.
Isn’t that the way God works in our lives? He wants to take those messy parts in our lives and cultivate us. The goal of Punch and Press is to develop people and cultivate potential. Our goal is that the conversations we share together press us into His Word and His calling in our lives.
