Join Explorer,  Kevin DeVries,  on his epic,  five-summer adventure searching for Noah’s Ark at nearly 17, 000 ft. on Mt. Ararat, Turkey featured in the 2015 nationwide,  award-winning documentary: FINDING NOAH for an intimate and intense encounter with biblical history buried under the ice of legendary myth. Come see and hear for yourself “the greatest discovery in life is Who finds you while you are looking for something else.” You’ll be fascinated and inspired by what Kevin has discovered for your own life.

INSPIRATIONAL TALKS 

Here are two of the most popular 45 minute to one hour Inspirational Talks Kevin DeVries delivers that were forged from the film FINDING NOAH Each Inspirational Talk begins with this 4.5 minute video: Finding Noah Kevin DeVries Intro

  • FINDING NOAH/FINDING GRACE – God’s majesty is revealed more in mystery than mastery. God’s glory is secrecy. The glory of mankind is the search. Proverbs 25:2 We’re all Noah searching for the same mystery of grace that filled a man with marvel while mankind drowned in madness. Genesis 6:8, 8:1 The greatest discovery in life is Who finds you when you are looking for something else. Ephesians 2:8-9
  • CLIMB YOUR MOUNTAIN  –  We’re all exiled, nameless kings and queens in a foreign country who must climb our own Mt. Ararat – ‘The Painful Mountain’ to discover our true names and powerful purpose. Numbers 23:21, Isaiah 45: 2,3 Discover the “thin air” where eternities weight thins time so wounds time cannot heal are healed with eternities touch. Psalm 121:1,2, Jeremiah 6:16

Mountaineering is the only sport that celebrates at halftime. The summit is halftime. Basecamp is the true summit. A successful life is halftime. A significant life is final. Returning to basecamp from the summit is a significant life. Most fatalities occur on the descent not the ascent towards the summit. A successful, safe living transforms into a significant, surprising life when we ascend AND descend the mountains of life. In God’s country, going out is going in and going up is going down. Grace Explorations will guide you on this inward journey because while we know you can climb faster alone we can climb further together.

The Finding Noah Kevin DeVries Intro is a juxtaposition of two contrasting narratives.  The first is obvious and explicit – the search for Noah’s Ark. The second is oblique and implicit – the search for the heart, frozen in trauma like an Ark buried under several millennia of glacial ice. Every layer of ice excavated on Ararat is emblematic of the heart beginning to feel to heal. God concealed an Ark in awe so under its frozen frame we find our new names. The search for the Ark is about the recovery of our original glory as royal regents in a garden of awe.

The purpose for all Inspirational Talks is to create what the early Celtic Christians called a “Thin Place.” By setting aside sacred space with Worship (if applicable/available), Workshop and Waiting sessions, the weight of eternity wrinkles time with God’s smiling face of grace fulfilling our mission as a spiritual guide service to “help wandering and wounded hearts find home and healing in Christ.”

Healing happens in a glorious garden where CHRIST as a river of living water flows into four streams (Genesis 2:10, Psalm 46:4, John 4:13–14). We believe the four streams of healing are: CHURCH – corporate celebration and communion as the Bride of Christ (Ephesians 5:25–27); COUNSEL – professional faith- based therapy and pastoral counsel (Proverbs 15:22); COMMUNITY – doing life together as a Band of Brothers/Sisters (Acts 2:42-47); CONTEMPLATION – prayer, scripture meditation before an Audience of One (Psalm 46:10). Where these four streams converge and compliment each other, healing happens. To exempt one compromises the whole. We seek wholeness – the cure of sin through confession to Christ (I John 1:9) and the healing of shame through confession in a redemptive community in Christ (James 5:16).
