Annual Gathering 2017

October 12, 2017 - October 15, 2017

The Annual Gathering offers both emerging and experienced leaders the chance to step back and reflect together on the challenges of career, relationships, family, faith, and community life. For those who are married we strongly encourage you to attend as couples.


A Thursday evening Welcome Dinner (beginning at 6:30pm) serves as the official beginning of T7.  The weekend concludes on Sunday morning with a worship and communion service (ending at approximately 11:00am).   Over the three days participants will enjoy inspiring speakers, breakout sessions, small group gatherings, delicious meals, engaging conversations, recreation, and relaxation. It is a time to connect, learn, and re-energize.


The conference fee is listed below (please note early bird and tiered pricing structure) and covers all food and a small portion of the program expenses. The registration link is located at the very bottom of the page. There is a nominal registration fee for the optional workshops. Participants are responsible for their own transportation and lodging arrangements.

    Workshop #1 : Journey of Generosity

    Thursday, October 12, 9am-4pm
    $75 Workshop #1 Fee (includes breakfast and lunch)

    We attended a Generous Giving Conference and it changed the trajectory of our lives. Since then, we have participated and led JOGS, and we have seen amazing things happen for all involved. You can’t help but to be moved to joy.

    ~Kathleen and Mike Fox


    We have enjoyed hosting and co-leading several Journey of Generosity workshops in the last couple years. Each one has been uniquely inspiring — stretching our imagination and challenging us to a more intentional walk in living our faith.

    ~Sarah and Regg Jones


    Workshop #2 : Enneagram I – Know Your Number

    Taught by Ian Cron

    This course is a wonderful introduction to the Enneagram.
    Thursday, October 12, 9am-4pm
    $75 Workshop #2 Fee (includes breakfast and lunch)

    Ian Cron

    What you don’t know about yourself can hurt you and your relationships―and even keep you in the shallows with God. Do you want help figuring out who you are and why you’re stuck in the same ruts? The Enneagram is an ancient personality type system with an uncanny accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and negatively. In The Road Back to You Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile forge a unique approach―a practical, comprehensive way of accessing Enneagram wisdom and exploring its connections with Christian spirituality for a deeper knowledge of ourselves, compassion for others, and love for God.
