Soul Care in the 21st Century
September 29 – Oct 5, 2019
hosted by SEND International in Farmington, MI

Designed and facilitated 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.

Limited to 10 women. First come, first serve!  Register by July 30 or sooner.  Questions? Lynn Karidis, LynnKaridis@send.org

 Course Schedule:

Begin Sunday, September 29, at 5pm with dinner and an introductory session. End Saturday evening, October 5, at 8pm. (Note: your conference fee allows you to stay on the SEND campus Saturday night and fly or drive out on Sunday morning). We will enjoy worship time together each 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

This price includes accommodation (all single occupancy rooms) with 3 meals during each full day (plus snacks) for the duration of your stay, Sept 29-October 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. What a deal!
