Discovering My Design and Personal Mission: Bringing More of Myself to Ministry

October 26, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - October 31, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

Discovering My Design and Personal Mission: Bringing More of Myself to Ministry

October 26 – November 1, 2022
(Registration opens April 1, 2022)

Invest in a week of personal refreshment and ministry renewal in a beautiful setting with like-minded peers!
Limited places available – first come, first serve. . .

hosted by: Avant Ministries
facilitated by Caryn Young and Julie Grunzweig

Based on The Significant Woman life-coaching process/material by Cru. 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.  No advance preparation. (http://thesignificantwoman.com/products/the-significant-woman)

This development experience will help you build confidence and skills around clarity in your own unique design and personal mission and strengthen your ability to step into the opportunities God is putting before you!  Invest now in a relational learning experience with peers, in a lovely setting for renewal and growth! Learning is done in interactive peer-groups, guided by experienced mentors, with a maximum of 12 women in each group. First come, first serve!

(Other Module groups also meeting during this week:  Mentoring Next Generation Women – see Module Descriptions for more information.)
