Land: Discovering God's Vision for You
Some of the benefits and challenges of living in the 21st
century are the unlimited number of possibilities. More choices and opportunities are available than in any previous
generation. One would think this
would make life easier, but in reality life has become more confusing.
Living by your design (gifts, talents, etc.) helps
narrow your choices. Knowing your life mission, or charter, brings
increased purpose and meaning to your daily life.
However, there are still many different things you can do,
directions you can go and lands in which you can serve and reside
while you live out God’s mission for you.
To give your life not only purpose,
but direction, this workshop focuses on helping you discover
clues God has revealed to you, discerning the desires of your heart
to discover God’s best “land” for you.
These discoveries are integrated with the insights
gathered from prior workshops to help you clear the fog and picture
a vivid, vibrant life vision – your very own Promised Land!
"You chart the path ahead of me and tell
me where to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am. You
both precede and follow me." Ps 139:3, 5

a result of attending this workshop…
my vision and know what it is! I have moved from dreaming about my
vision to moving forward in God's vision for me… I continue to reap
benefits mentally and spiritually from my mission statement and vision.
Instead of fighting being a pastor, I can pursue ministry and pastoring with
passion. Thanks for your part in all of this.
