“The Journey Deepens” is a weekend retreat to help aspiring missionaries explore what it is like to be a missionary, discover whether a missionary or sender role is God’s fit, and connect with mission agencies. This is for college students, young adults, mid-lifers, baby boomers – anyone willing to explore becoming a missionary. Each retreat of about 25 participants and seven missionary coaches from multiple agencies is highly relational with extended worship, small group discussions, personal reflection and much prayer. Discussions include guidance, finances, singles/families, etc. Upcoming spring retreats are Seattle Jan 31-Feb 2, Indianapolis Feb 21-23, Portland Oregon Mar 14-16.
