Parresia is a teaching ministry founded by Tricia Gunn.
We have a big vision at Parresia to see the gospel of the Grace of our Lord Jesus spread far and wide! We want everyone to boldly receive everything accomplished in the finished work of Jesus Christ. And we want to make easy for Grace lovers to boldly share the amazing, scandalous Gospel of Grace with others.
Present ministries underway:
- Producing a new weekly TV talk show called "A Real View of the Grace Life" where a panel of women who have been ambushed by the amazing grace of Jesus Christ discuss how their eyes are opening more and more to what was accomplished for them at the cross and how they are personally applying the truth of the Gospel to their own lives. (Launched nationally in March on DirecTV 367)
- Developing the “I AM Free” video Bible study series with a new book focused on our identity in Christ. The purpose is living in freedom every day from any bondage; including shame, guilt, fear, addictions, depression, and performance-based religion. (Launching in April 2018)
- Hosting conferences and Parresia Gatherings held locally and in other cities for worship, teaching, and testimonies.
- Production of more in-depth video teaching series, brief Beholding Jesus videos, Grace Encounter videos, and Grace Questions videos and making teachings available online. We are continually adding video and audio excerpts and full length teachings to our website. See "messages" on the navigation bar above for teachings.
- The Local Church Initiative which provides Unveiling Jesus books and DVD's for free to local churches and new church plants. This ministry designed support local churches with the foundational, thorough verse by verse teaching of the pure and amazing gospel of grace.
- Prison ministry using Unveiling Jesus and providing FREE books to inmates. We have also been able to provide free books to other ministries, such as addiction recovery and the rescued victims of human trafficking. About 1000 books have been given away to these ministries so far!
- The Grace Upon Grace Scripture Card ministry. These personalized scripture cards encourage the recipients with the grace and love of Jesus Christ, their identity in Him as a new creation, and the wonder of His finished work on the cross. We've expanded this ministry to include personalized Healing Grace Scripture cards and scripture cards for children.
- Continuing the Grace Nugget blog from a variety of grace authors.
- Generously sowing into other grace-based ministries and churches.
- Becoming a hub for “All Things Grace” from the broader grace community such as blogs, books, teachings, and music.
- Developing ministry school called “All Things Grace” to train leaders. (Dreaming stage)
