Family On Mission (Cancelled)

Aug 27th, 2020Family On Mission (Cancelled)

Do you and your partner ever struggle to find time to attend to both family and a larger calling in the world from God (mission), or experience burnout because the margins you have tried to establish between your “church work” (be it paid or lay) and “family life” are forever blurring into each other? 

Innovate Network invites you and your partner to this retreat to consider what it might mean to leave behind the paradigms of Family OR Mission (where we must choose one and ignore the other) as well as Family AND Mission (where we try to establish boundaries to keep them separated) in favour of Family ON Mission, where we wholeheartedly embrace being part of a covenant community (family) while engaging with God and each other in being good news to the world around us (mission). 

This retreat is for leaders and their partners, currently engaged in the Relearning Community journey, previously engaged in the Relearning Community journey, or who have not yet been on the Relearning Community journey to engage in a restful and reflective retreat time to reflect on what it would look like to really live together as family and to answer our call to mission, whatever that looks like in your family context.


Begins Thursday evening at 7pm and ends Saturday after lunch.
