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

September 8 @ 5:00 pm - September 14 @ 7:00 pm

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

September 8-15, 2022  in Charlotte, NC at SIM USA
(Registration closes July 8 or sooner if full)

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: SIM USA
facilitated by Caryn Young (NABC) and Julie Grunzweig (WDT)

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 – to make your best contribution for God’s Kingdom!

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. Enjoy a week of coaching by experienced mentors and with peers toward the clarity that frees us from over- or under-commitment and a life pace that sustains us as passionate lifetime disciples.   Minimal advance preparation. 

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! Register by July 8.

(Other Module groups also meeting during this week:  Group Discipleship – see Module Descriptions for more information.)

Course Schedule:

Begin Thursday evening, September 8, 5pm sharp, with introductions/overview and dinner. End Wednesday evening, September 14, at 7pm (registration includes your room for this night, assuming September 15 departures.) Daily activities from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm, which include  worship, personal reflection time, group instruction and interaction, plus several breaks, a long lunch and evenings free.

We will enjoy an extended worship time together on the first morning to ease into our week, and a Free Afternoon half way through the week to enjoy the area and have some fun/relaxation.

We will be hosted by SIM USA located in Charlotte, NC.  This all-inclusive price includes lovely accommodation with a bathroom in each room (based on double occupancy) and use of all facilities, with 3 meals/day plus coffee breaks, for the duration of your stay,  September  8-15, except dinner on the day off.   It also includes training instruction, all meeting rooms, administration, pick-up and delivery to the Charlotte airport, and transportation on our day off. Some materials ordered separately, approx $20. What a deal!

Because this is an event fee, it is not tax-deductible.
