Very rarely in the Bible does God command someone to “stay.” He opens a door, and then he invites us to walk through it—into the unknown. And how we choose to respond will ultimately determine the lives we will lead and the people we will become. In six-session Bible study, bestselling author John Ortberg opens our eyes to the countless open doors God places before us every day, teaches us how to recognize them, and gives us the encouragement to step out in faith and embrace all of the extraordinary opportunities that await. 

John is the Senior Pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in the San Francisco Bay Area. In addition to All the Places to Go, John has written a numerous books on spiritual formation including, Soul Keeping and The Life You’ve Always Wanted.

Take a look at this video overview of the series.



An open door is the greatest adventure of life because it means the possibility of being useful to God. But God never says it's going to be easy! In every session, you'll hear about the obstacles and victories of ordinary people who have seen God do amazing things when they stepped through the doors God’s put before them. In this real-life story from the series, David talks about the door that closed on his dreams of going to medical school, and how God created a new avenue for his passion. 


Who do you know who needs the confidence and faith to walk through an open door into the unknown? Who is struggling with a door that closed on their dreams? Who is searching for opportunities to make their life count? Who will you reach out to as you start this Bible Study?
