About Consumed

Consumed Ministries began in 2004, but the message we long to share has been in existence since Jesus dwelt on the earth two thousand years ago. Consumed was formed because this message has completely revolutionalized our lives. In John 10:10 Jesus tells us that He came not to just give life, but to give it more abundantly – a.k.a. to the full! Later, in John 17, Jesus tells us that ‘life’ is found only in knowing God and Himself. This message awakened us…changed us. And now we want to share with the world the message that there is an abundant, overflowing, more than you can begin to imagine life found only in knowing God in a deep, intimate and relational way. We value relationships because it is through relationships that God provides opportunities for Consumed to share the message of life. Although our home office is located in Bloomington, MN we are currently networking with people around the United States and world to take advantage of every connection God brings our way.
