As this full and complex year comes to a close, let’s consider together God’s invitation to reflect on all that’s happened this year and how it all impacts our life and leadership. Join us for a year-end conversation and a guided spiritual practice meant to help you attune to all that God is doing in and around you. In our time together you’ll get:
- time and space to reflect
- tools to help you end the year well
- wisdom to enhance the work God is already doing in and through you!
For this conversation, we’ve gathered a group of extraordinary leaders. Each has a background in business and/or entrepreneurship, and also focuses much of their current work on the spiritual and vocational formation of others. This is truly a conversation you won’t want to miss!
