Namesake Retreat


  • Klein Slangkop Kommetjie, Cape Town South Africa (map)
Is this a soul that stirs in me? Is it breaking free, wanting to come alive? Because my comfort would prefer for me to be numb, and avoid the impending birth of who I was born to become.
— C.S. Lewis Song

THE RETREAT

We believe God made you with purpose and for a purpose, and one of our deepest desires is to see young adults rise up to their namesakes—to who God's called them to be. The goal of the Namesake Retreat is to help you gain clarity and direction in regard to your God-given calling. Here's what you can expect from the weekend:

• 6 discussions
• 1 evening of sharing stories
• 1 evening of worship
• 2 community breakfasts
• 2 community dinners
• 1 community lunch

 

THE ACCOMMODATION

Klein Slangkop Guesthouse

 

THE DISCUSSIONS

Perspective
What kind of culture do you live in and how has it shaped how you think today? How can you operate with a Kingdom mindset in a broken world? And why are forgiveness and redeemed perspective so important?

Identity
Who are you? What is your spiritual makeup? How has God created you with purpose and for a purpose? We'll talk about spiritual instincts, personality type, spiritual gifts, and personal dreams and passions.

Life Roles & Vision
What roles have you been called to play in this season of life? Once we've helped you discern what your life roles are, we'll discuss why it's important to have a bigger picture vision for each of them.

Fear & Opposition
Jesus told us that the world will persecute His followers. How do we deal with opposition? How do we face our fears? The minute you start walking in your God-given calling, external and internal forces will come against you. But we won't give up. We won't back down.

Action Planning
OK, so by now, you should have a decent idea of who you are — of who God created you to be. How do you "do you" in the world? This session takes you beyond simply talking the talk. It urges you to ask the question, "How do I actually walk out my calling?"

The retreat is open to 8 people.
