This weekend is open to all adults—married or single.  It is a spiritual retreat that includes relaxation, meeting new people and fun.

The setting is spectacular.  A quiet spot on Keats Island overlooking Howe Sound with comfortable and spacious rooms, delicious meals and warm hospitality.

A typical weekend has four sessions with the guest speaker.  There is free time on Saturday afternoon to play a game of pool or tennis, hike to Bridgeman’s Bluff or soak in the hot tub.

This faith-focused weekend will give you rest and renew your soul.

TRANSITIONS: Exploring life changes as maturing adults

“Transition is a great deal more than change...It’s a growing and a maturing and wisdom gaining process...It’s an opportunity to renew our dreams and refresh our calling. (Max De Pree).”

Everyone copes with aging differently. For many the so-called “golden years” are “years of adjustments” as we deal with changes such as winding down our careers, moving, becoming a caregiver, adjusting to a fixed income and other such consequences of aging. Some changes are expected and easy to cope with. Others can shock one’s sense of stability such as an unexpected decline in health, finding meaning and purpose after a career, or the loss of a loved one.

This weekend is for those who are approaching or already into the change of a new season in life   (55+/-). Together we will explore how to embrace times of change and to better understand biblical teaching as we become, “mature and complete, not lacking anything” (James 1:4). There will be practical helps in learning how to face and deal with life decisions differently as well as learning from one another so we might change and adjust to find new life and growth in our spiritual journey.

 

Paul Pearce is currently involved as the director of the Centre for Healthy Aging Transitions (CHAT), which is an emerging ministry of the Carey Institute in Vancouver. CHAT offers seminars, resources and other consultation opportunities to address the challenges and opportunities presented by an unprecedented growth in the older adult demographic, as a result of the aging boomer generation.
Paul served as the Executive Director of the Beulah Garden Homes Society in East Vancouver, in a number of ministry capacities across western Canada, as an educator in Ontario, and as a pastor and a CBWC denominational staff leader in Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver.
He also serves with the staff of First Baptist Church in Vancouver in coordinating the review and planning for ministry with older adults in the church and community.

 

Rev. Dr. Carson Pue is recognized as a leader of leaders. He is known globally through his mentoring work with Christian leaders and as the best selling author of Mentoring Leaders: Wisdom for Developing Calling, Character and Competency. Known for his masterful storytelling and innovative leadership style, Carson equips audiences with many remarkable and fascinating untold stories behind what it takes to be a leader. As a father, a businessman, pastor, executive director of Charles Swindoll’s radio ministry Insight for Living, CEO of Arrow Leadership and now as executive director at First Baptist Vancouver and working on a significant building project in the heart of the city, Carson knows our world and what it means to lead.
