Journey with God

  • Mekong Centre, Chiang Mai (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

All of us have a God-given responsibility to influence others toward God’s purpose for them – whether as a leader, evangelist or facilitator of a Bible study group. In this 5-day workshop, we reflect on some deep personal questions such as "What is our motive for serving others?" and "Does our identity depend on what we do or does it rest on God?" We learn about how God develops us over time, so that we serve Him out of a Christ-likeness, from the time we are called, with the gifts He has given, and in our journey with Him.

Current For Women Weekend Away

Women work really hard at the lives they lead – striving to be the best students, wives, moms, professionals, volunteers, all around good people - they feel they should and could be. However, below the surface activity, there is a current issuing from the deep places of every woman out of which her dreams, longings, fears, passions…flow – seldom addressed, rarely touched. We are even more convinced of the depths of God – His moving on our behalf – always at work, always pursuing, loving, longing for us. Out of this growing awareness has been an equally growing passion in our hearts to provide a safe place, time and experience where women can get away and get quiet for long enough to receive God’s touch and to relax into His Current. The result is a women’s weekend retreat called Cur•rent for Women.
