Ready, Set…Thrive! (formerly Getting Ready)
18-22 Nov 2019
Ready, Set… Thrive! is the final of three Wycliffe member orientation workshops. Wycliffe members take personal responsibility to maintain their spiritual health and relationships on the field. This week of training will follow up on topics introduced in the first workshop, Worldwide Wycliffe which includes personal resiliency and multi-cultural teams. The topics covered in Ready, Set.. Thrive! aim to introduce disciplines that will equip cross cultural mission workers to be proactively engaged in a successful ministry.
- Communication (active listening skills, understanding the dangers of making assumptions, practicing assertiveness and conflict resolution)
- Spiritual Vitality (dealing with temptations, spiritual warfare, self-esteem and spiritual temperaments and developing a personal spiritual growth plan)
- Adaptation (balanced living, transitions, grief, healing heart wounds and the theology of suffering)
- Living in Community (understanding others and ourselves better through a personality survey, the four basic cultural types and Biblical multi-cultural teams)
Ready, Set…Thrive! is facilitated by field-experienced staff at the Wycliffe National Centre, Kangaroo Ground just outside Melbourne. Sessions are from 9.00 am – 4.30 pm daily.
This is a self-catered event with morning and afternoon tea provided. Accommodation with self-catering facilities are available on site at www.wycliffe.org.au/retreats. Child minding service may be arranged if prior notice is given.
