Come rest, play and learn with other V3 Church Planters in a serene setting between the mountains and the beach at Serra Retreat. Mark will be guiding a period of contemplative prayer practices and sessions on using the Enneagram as a tool for personal transformation.
What does it look like to walk in the way of Jesus as a family? How can we create a sense of home that honors the best of where we come from and embraces the emerging challenges and opportunities of life in the 21st century? It’s easy to get stuck reacting to the unhelpful patterns. Or it’s tempting to mirror the default values of safety, security, self-focus and material success that have characterized our culture. We know that simplistic, rule-based and one-size fits all approaches won’t work. We invite you to explore a vision for family life that is imaginative, intentional, creative, soulful and globally aware.
Families come in all shapes and sizes. Some have two parents, others have one, and still others have three or four. There are families with and without children, and children come into families by birth, by adoption or simply through love. Whatever the make up of your household, your family can be a space of belonging, where each person feels safe, loved, cherished and cared for, and a place of becoming, where each person is supported to to develop who they are for the good of the world. In this hands-on weekend intensive, we will explore skills and practices that can help you create a thriving family culture.
• Value your family strengths and assess areas for growth.
• Create a shared purpose agreement.
• Identify priorities and develop life-giving rhythms with time.
• Make space for important conversations and family fun.

With the high cost of living in San Francisco, many of us wonder if it is possible to thrive here over the long term. How can life be relationally and financially sustainable while pursuing work that contributes to the greater good of the kingdom of God? Thriving in such a competitive city is possible, but requires intentionality, financial competency, and the development of soul practices like gratitude, contentment, trust, and generosity. Join-us for a three week practical course that will help you name what matters most, create a spending plan, and maximize your resources.
Mark Scandrette is the founding director of ReIMAGINE, a center for integral Christian practice based in San Francisco. He is the author of three books including Soul Graffiti, Practicing the Way of Jesus and FREE: Spending Your Time and Money on What Matters Most. Mark and his wife Lisa and their three children live in the Mission District. Pursuing the wisdom of simplicity and learning to be intentional with money has helped them own property in San Francisco, successfully raise three children, live debt free on one modest income and seek meaningful work, service and relationships over the past 17 years.
A light lunch will be provided.
Childcare Provided for 0 - 10 year olds.
