Upcoming Training & Events
The Well Events
The Well provides a range of Trainings and Events including multi-day workshops, seminars and retreats designed for both cross-cultural workers and member care personnel. We host a full calendar of events every year and may also be available to speak at your conference, retreat or team meeting (contact us for inquiries).
As Member Care providers we need to care for the whole family. If one person in the family is not thriving, the whole family is suffering. How can we see if a child or teenagers is not doing well? How do we support the parents in parenting the MK? How can we support the children and teenagers? When should we ask for professional help? When is it time for the family to leave the field?
Art, creativity, and imagination can all be a renewing, restoring, and challenging part of our spiritual formation. Come for a day of quiet, reflection, and creativity. Skilled or not skilled in art - this is for you! The time will be largely structured. Art materials, coffee break, and a simple lunch will be included.
A great time for families with children ages 4-20
to reflect on the impact transitions have had in their lives!
Are you weary? Need spiritual refreshment? Nearing burnout? Just want some time with God? Join us at Wellspring - a retreat designed and led by The Well staff, for couples and singles engaged in cross-cultural ministry.
You are invited to a 2 night/2 day retreat designed to lead you into quiet in order to return to the Lord, rest, let your trust deepen and be strengthened and rescued. (Is. 30:15) A few spiritual disciplines will be introduced/practiced: morning, noon, mid afternoon and evening prayers; the examen; breath prayers; imaginative prayer; etc. Some art supplies will be included, but art will not be the primary focus. The theme: Is. 30:15 & Advent - preparing for His Coming.
Crossroads is a two-week restoration program featuring counselling, group work, and opportunities to gain insight, improve coping skills and learn new tools for greater effectiveness.

Do you feel you are robbed of passion and vitality in your daily living? Do you sometimes find yourself wanting more---then feeling a little guilty because life isn’t supposed to be just about what you want?
Narramore Christian Foundation is hosting this seminar designed for cross-cultural workers—those who would like to develop their member care skills or develop member care within their context or for their company, pastors, administrators, team leaders, and those who counsel and listen to people—this intensive training offers practical psychological insights and counseling techniques with a strong integration of biblical and theological truth. Daily worship, individual consultation, networking, and daily breakout groups to apply and practice what is learned make this a rich and life-changing experience.
Leadership requires increasingly effective expertise in the way we communicate with those we work with. Coaching skills are essential.
This 3 day workshop is for anyone who wishes to incorporate coaching skills into their existing roles.
