RETREAT, REFLECT, REFRESH

Face to Face is a two-week personal development course following the Lord’s invitation to “come aside with me to a quiet place”. This course is for Christian workers who have been involved in cross-cultural work or other Christian ministry for at least 2 years and who want to develop their relationship with God, grow in self-awareness, and be better placed for service and leadership.

THE COURSE STAFF

Each staff member has been through the course and had a life-changing encounter with God as a result. They are committed to personal growth and ongoing professional training. A feature of the course is the willingness of the staff to be vulnerable and share their weaknesses, struggles and process of change.
