Five Weeks | Thursdays | Online (Oct 14-Nov 11) & Day Retreat in person (Sat, Nov 13) 

Explore what the Bible says about being human: an image-bearer of the living God, made from dust but filled with His Spirit and created to serve Him as a beloved child. With biblical teaching, discussion, and reflection exercises, you will grow deeper in your experience of God's Presence. You will be invited to pay attention to your unique spiritual journey so far by exploring your: 

  • Family of origin
  • Defining moments
  • Important influences 
  • Enneagram* 

*The Enneagram is an ancient and powerful way of understanding our spiritual journey towards Christlike maturity and the deepest surrender which God is inviting us to make.

Thursday Evenings | Online | 7pm – 8:45pm + Day Retreat on Sat, Nov 13

  • Oct 14 - The Paradox of Being Human – Made of Dust, Made in His Image
  • Oct 21 - Saved to Serve: Slaves > Servants > Friends > Children > Beloved Bride
  • Oct 28 - Journey Towards Wholeness – Our Spiritual History
  • Nov 4 - Introduction to the 9 Journeys of the Enneagram
  • Nov 11 - Formed Towards Christ by the Enneagram
  • Nov 13 - Celebrating Our Identity Retreat (Time and Location TBD)

Format: Each of the evening sessions will require you to read through a small package of material beforehand, coming prepared to discuss and share. The Thursday evenings will include a review of the material with lots of time for discussion and practical hands-on exercises.

The Identity course is the first of a series of three new courses:

  1. Identity: Seeing Yourself through God’s Eyes (Fall 2021)
  2. Gifting & Calling: Doing Your God-Given Part (Winter 2022)
  3. Discernment: Sensing God’s Guidance (Spring 2022)

Each course has in mind the crucial questions: Who is God? Who are We? How then, should we live?  Join us for this journey of being equipped to live all your life in dynamic relationship with the living God who loves you and is working in the world through you.

Ideally, all three courses will be taken in succession, but participants are free to register for each course individually.

Registration for each course is limited. In general, these courses are for people who have been following Jesus for a while,  who have completed other discipleship courses, and who are hungry to invest in being formed spiritually.  There will be questions to answer as a part of registration to determine if this is the right time for you to take this course.  We will confirm your enrolment the week before the start of the course.
