Overcoming Adversity Retreat


This retreat is designed for all Christian people, regardless of their participation in ministry.

Friday, April 5th | 6pm – Saturday, April 6th |  10pm

None of us like to admit we’re afraid, but we all know there are moments when we feel worried, anxious, frantic, and scared. Because that which we fear most indicates that about which we most care. Fear tells us what we love, and how much it would mean if we lost it. Thus, fear orients us in line with our passions albeit facing in the wrong direction. It is our responsibility to do the hard work of turning around. Instead of running from our fear, we will study it. We will understand it. We will use it. And we will learn how to live courageously and victoriously in spite of the ever present threats attacking our peace.

You will learn:

* How to learn the lessons your fears are teaching you, so you can overcome difficulties and surmount obstacles to your wellbeing

* How to leverage the “free energy” that fear creates, and redistribute that energy toward following your dreams

*  How to remain true to yourself inspite of your circumstances, in spite of adversity, and in spite of self-doubt

* How to orient your life toward your passions (instead of away from your fears, anxieties, and discomforts)

* How to live courageously
