Great Ministry in the Second-Half of Life: Rediscovering Meaning, Balance, Joy, and Success
A five-day renewal retreat for ministry leaders at mid-careerOctober 22, 2018 3:00pm – October 26, 2018 11:00am
Ministry is beautiful, amazing, profound, and exciting.
It is also exhausting, frustrating, and overwhelming!
Great Ministry in the Second-Half of Life is designed for ministry leaders over the age of 50 with a minimum of 10 years of service to the church. In a beautiful retreat setting, we will examine research about mid-career, reflect on our own lives and passions, and talk with God and each other about how to find meaning, balance, joy, and success at mid-career and beyond. We will focus on four themes:
- Letting Go: releasing the hurts, grievances, and unproductive practices of the past and addressing the doldrums at mid-career;
- Honoring Wisdom: recognizing and claiming the wisdom of experience and finding new ways to measure value and success;
- Imagining a Legacy: being curious about what it will take to cross the finish line feeling victorious and flush with satisfaction;
- Dreaming a New Path: listening for God-sized dreams for our lives and work.
Tuition is $200, including a single room at The Terrace at Lake Junaluska Conference & Retreat Center. Space is limited, so apply soon!
