QARA is a Hebrew word for “to call.” To call means to name and to name means to call into being or to make.

Naming someone is not merely hanging a name tag; it’s a creative process of becoming someone who you are not yet. It’s a process of stepping into your destiny. When Abrahm (high father) was re-named into Abraham (father of multitudes), in a sense his destiny changed. He indeed became the father of Christianity.

At QARA, we believe God calls each and one of us. Every person is special, made in the image of God.

You are not a cosmic accident but handcrafted and custom-made by a perfect Creator. You are irreplaceable. You are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Why Focus on Twenty-Somethings?

Your twenties is the most transformative period of your life. Studies show that 80% of your life’s most defining moments happen before the age 35. In other words, your twenties is your defining decade. This is a time when the fabric of life is woven together into a discernible and increasingly solidified pattern. Many great revivals and missionary movements through history, in fact, were birthed through the irrepressible zeal of twenty-somethings.

Yet, so many of twenty-somethings are lost. Stuck. Disappointed.

Two-thirds of twenty-somethings feel like they are overwhelmed, anxious and restless. Life feels like it’s full of U-turns. False starts.

Have you ever felt a pang of jealousy as you scroll through your Instagram feed? Have you ever been paralyzed by indecision? Feeling like you will regret and disappointed if you make the “wrong” decisions? Have you put your dream job on hold because of the daily grind of your day job?

If you ever feel this way, you’re not alone.

What is QARA?

At QARA, we envision a new generation that is freed from the overwhelming pressures of the world to become someone else. We equip, inspire, and empower twenty-somethings to embrace their God-given design and potential, becoming the best version they were created to be. We guide them to find their True North.

As an online community and resource hub, we help you become the best version God created you to be – fully empowered to pursue your calling and to make a lasting impact on your family, your organization, your community and the world.
