What's In It For you?
Six Sessions of Reflection and Conversation
Each session is 2-hours in length, and happens once per week (over a six week period). Most cohorts currently meet virtually (via Zoom), along with a few in-person cohorts in Houston, TX.
Time and Space to Process
Each session is designed as a rest stop—space to intentionally slow down, quiet your mind and heart, and refuel for the next leg of the journey. Time to focus on what your soul needs as you listen for the voice of God in your work.
Each session includes guided exercises, reflection questions, Bible exploration, and experiment prompts meant to usher you to unpack all that’s going on in your world. Some of these take place in the group sessions, while others happen between sessions.
Companions are crucial to any journey. Our Road Ahead groups are intentionally small (5-8 people). Some of our groups are designed for people who share common experiences. Find descriptions for our cohort types below.
Road Ahead Might Be Good If:
- + You’re feeling stuck
- + You’re in vocational crisis
- + You’re in transition
- + You’re asking big “what’s next?” questions
- + You have questions about what God is calling you to
- + You could really use some space to reflect
- + You want to unpack the road God’s had you on thus far
- + You crave space to make sense of your faith and your work
Sandee Masuda Hunt
The Road Ahead groups taught me how our pain can reveal our longings. I feel I was able to get unstuck by discerning what I long for and how my empathy related to my next steps.
One common theme in our third third Road Ahead group was how to create more runway in our lives. Everyone in our cohort brought experiences of life and loss, and were willing to call a spade a spade. For me, I work in a corporate environment that will end one day. This program was relevant because it made sense how everything I've done in life can create more runway through empathy, imagination, and risk; to do other things as I get older.
When I entered the Road Ahead program, I wanted to explore my new coaching practice. However, I discovered my longing and starting place was somewhere else. God was calling me to wholeness and authenticity which is connected to my creative practice. I wouldn’t have had this insight at this moment of my journey had I not gone through this program. This was a real eye-opener because I was able to connect back to my core, to the core of my calling.
