Soul Care in the 21st Century: Rest & Reconnect with Jesus

September 16 @ 5:00 pm - September 22 @ 8:00 pm

Soul Care in the 21st Century is a spiritual formation experience designed to help you rest, learn, and reconnect with Jesus . . .

Interactive learning in peer-groups is limited to 10 participants. First come, first serve!  Register by Aug 1, 2017 (past this date, contact organizer to see if any places are still open: LynnKaridis@send.org)   Registration Closed – FULL.

Designed by Dr Lynn Karidis, SEND International.   How is your busyness quotient these days? Do you long for some time alone so you can rest and reconnect with Jesus? How can you find the refreshment and renewal you need to thrive in ministry? Jesus offers an invitation to you: Come away with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest. It’s the same invitation Jesus gave to his disciples after a season of intense ministry. Soul Care in the 21st Century is a spiritual formation retreat designed to help you rest, learn, and reconnect with Jesus. Come and discover some new and ancient ways to care for your soul. Find a rhythm for continued spiritual growth that fits your personality and lifestyle. Each day is structured to include rest, food, learning, spiritual practice, reflection, and fellowship. No preparation needed.

Course Schedule:

Begin Saturday, September 16, at 5pm with dinner and an introductory session.
End Friday evening, September 22, at 8pm. (Note: your conference fee allows you to stay on the SEND campus Friday night and fly or drive out on Saturday morning). We will enjoy a worship time together on Sunday morning and a free afternoon on Wednesday for a break to rest or to enjoy the area for some fun/relaxation.

We will be hosted by SEND International on its campus in Farmington, Michigan just outside of Detroit. To get the most benefit from this unique opportunity, we ask that all participants stay on site. 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!)

All-Inclusive On-Site Cost:   $750   (What a DEAL!)

This price includes accommodation (all single occupancy rooms) with 3 meals during each full day (plus snacks) for the duration of your stay, April 30 – May 6. It also includes training instruction and materials, conference facilities and administration, pick-up and delivery to the Detroit airport, and daily transportation as needed.

If you are arriving by plane, please arrange to fly into Detroit (DTW – Detroit Metro airport) on Saturday September 16, arriving by 3pm, so our scheduled start on Saturday evening is protected. Flight departures anytime on Saturday, September 23. Thanks for arranging your arrival/departure times, so that you will be present from beginning to end, not arriving late or leaving early. It takes about 40 minutes to get from the Detroit airport to the SEND campus.

If you are driving to the SEND campus, please plan to be there by 4pm on Saturday, September 16 to get checked in before our training time begins. Let us know when you plan to arrive, so we know when to expect you.
