Recover, Restore & Renew | Author Series

Thursdays in March | 6:00 - 6:30 p.m. PT

Register here

 

If you’re a mom or a dad trying to juggle work, childcare and homeschooling, a business or ministry leader adjusting on the fly to a radically transformed landscape, or a young man or woman grappling with relationships, technology and schooling in a virtual world, you will find yourself gasping for breath at some point. We all do.

This webinar series is presented to you by the authors of Gasping for Breath and serves as an invitation to recover your breath and rebalance your life. Learn to become fully alive, renew, grow and flourish in a world that wants to take your breath away or worse yet, make you give up.

 

PART ONE - First Breath - Thursday, March 4
Your story begins so good. Perfect actually. God’s breath in you.

PART TWO - Gasping for Breath - Thursday, March 11
All of us, at various times, find ourselves completely out of breath – physically, emotionally, professionally, relationally, spiritually.

PART THREE - Learning to Breath Deeply - Thursday, March 18
It seems crazy to talk about learning practices for how to breath. Shouldn’t this just be routine – “as natural as breathing?” It’s just not that easy.

PART FOUR - Last Breath - Thursday, March 25
How do you stay in it for the long haul? How do you finish well? How do you bless the next generations, even with your last breaths?

Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done in 2021

 

400+ people joined us as New York Times Bestselling author, Jon Acuff,  provided practical, actionable ways to accomplish goals.

 

This motivational event kicked off 2021 and encouraged attendees to evaluate what they want to accomplish this year.

 

In every element of your life, goals matter. Yet for many of us, resolutions never get finished. Acuff shared simple things to improve how often you finish what you start.

Equipping Leaders for Changes & Challenges

Our leaders recognized that pastors are struggling with their own mental health while they simultaneously address the same conditions in the congregations they serve. To help provide a resource and encouragement to church leaders during this time, we brought in Dr. Cloud to share strategies to persevere and thrive as a leader. 

 

Dr. Cloud is a clinical psychologist, pastor to pastors and a New York Times bestselling author. His 45 books include the iconic "Boundaries" that has sold 20 million copies worldwide.

 

100+ people attended this virtual event and many shared that Dr. Cloud's words of wisdom were greatly appreciated to help them get through these trying times.

 

Celebration for Youth - Giving Tuesday

Our special event featured Youth for Christ, global thought-leader, Nona Jones, and a Christmas concert with four-time GRAMMY award-winning duo For King & Country

 

We are inspired by our northwest communities' generosity and commitment to support one another. Together, we raised $103,112 to support local chapters of Youth for Christ in Tacoma WA, Spokane WA, Portland OR, and Missoula MT.
