The Significant Woman: Discovering Personal Design and Mission
Discovering, mobilizing, and sustaining your personal mission and passion for life and service in the Lord. While we are all called to a lifetime of growth in Christ and participation in the purposes of God, each of us is also given a special calling that flows out of our unique design for a particular contribution at this time in history and in our specific life context. Discover, or re-discover, what God has for you in this stage of life.
Understanding how God has woven into each of us a special ability for contributing to His purposes through our life experiences, personalities, values, gifts and passions, allows us to experience a deeper sense of joy, satisfaction, perseverance, and impact. By gaining clarity and confidence around that personal mission, we can better recognize and choose involvements aligned with God’s design for us. This clarity also frees us from over- or under-commitment and a life pace that sustains us as passionate lifetime disciples. This module will allow you to experience the discovery process for yourself as well as see how it can be used in the lives of women in your ministry, church, neighborhood or work place. Minimal advance preparation. (http://thesignificantwoman.com/products/the-significant-woman)

Faith De La Cour SIM USA 14830 Choate Circle, Charlotte, NC 29273
We will confirm your reservation and send your receipt when we receive your registration form and payment – register by Sept 1, 2017 as spaces are limited – first come, first serve. Please wait to book your travel until we notify you to confirm your module at the close of registration in September, unless you hear from us sooner.
If you need to cancel, you will receive a refund less a $100 cancellation fee since this is necessary to cover non-refundable costs. Since groups are limited to 10, cancellations affect the overall group experience and configuration as well as our commitment to the facility. Therefore, we ask that each participant make every effort to be present once registered. Thank you!
If you are flying from out of the area please fly into Charlotte (CLT) on Saturday Oct 28, arriving by 4pm, so our scheduled start on Saturday evening is protected. Flight departures anytime Sat, Nov 4. Note that Guest House check out is at 12 pm. Thanks for arranging your arrival/departure times so that you will be present from beginning to end, not arriving/leaving early. It takes about 20 minutes to get from the Charlotte airport to the guesthouse and we will meet you.
If you are driving to the guesthouse, please plan to be there by 4pm on Sat, Oct 28, to get checked in before our training time begins. Let us know when you plan to arrive so we know when to expect you.

Upon close of registration, you will receive the preparation assignment 2 months ahead of time, for those modules that have advance prep, so that advance work can be reflective, reasonably paced, and enjoyable. (Interactive sessions are normally dependent on some advance preparation.) Be praying now that God will use this time powerfully in your own life as well as for the sake of others you will encourage and mentor.
Though we will enjoy stimulating interaction and friendship, this is an intensive course, so we will also be interacting together in full days. But by being undistracted together for the week, you may even get a bit more sleep than you do at home! (No husbands, children, pets, . . or chocolate you don’t plan to share!)
