Leadership Training Retreat – April 28

April 28, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Leading people to intimate places with God
where his voice can be heard

If you are eager to both experience listening to God for yourself and also learn how to lead others in listening to God, join us for this full day leadership training retreat.

During this retreat you can expect to:

  • learn five common ways of listening to God as outlined in the book Your Ears Will Hear;
  • be given solo time to listen to God through a scripture passage;
  • receive practical training on how to lead others in listening to God;
  • be encouraged to prayerfully consider & discern how God has gifted you to make your unique contribution in His kingdom

This retreat will take place right here at our chalet in Abbotsford, BC in our Rooftop Chapel.

This retreat gave me a clearer understanding of listening prayer and it's value and effectiveness. There was excellent teaching on listening to the voice of God rather than myself doing most of the talking. "Be still and know that I am God" became key for me. The peace of God was so evident throughout the entire day. I felt very welcomed and accepted, and the humility in Steve was so very evident. I would recommend the teaching to anyone.

I was able to enjoy the quiet and I loved the guided reflection time - it caused me to be quiet and slow down and listen. I was not distracted by housework or emails or kids! I felt so welcomed and safe. I was invited to listen and rest in the quiet and unhurried pace. God encouraged me through the listening times, reassured me of his love and care and I enjoyed hearing from others as well and was so blessed by their prayers for me. Thank you again.

The retreat was a re-calibration for me that I hope will have lasting impact on my life and ministry. I really appreciated everything Steve did to welcome people, affirm what they shared, and to help people open up to what God might be speaking to them. He’s a great storyteller, and all his stories were very encouraging. Thank you so much.

I came to the retreat mindful of the times I occasionally teach from the Bible and I was very much drawn to the session on Lectio Divina. Throughout the day, Steve modeled much of the teaching in terms of the leadership aspect of the retreat and how one might interact with a group of people when leading them into listening to God. The emphasis on drawing out the thoughts of others as a way to enable them to move deeper into their understanding of themselves and God is probably what will impact me the most.
