Do you ever feel swamped by the amount of things you have to do, let alone have time for reflecting on your life and ministry?
At Global Trellis, we know you are the kind of person (or family) who loves Jesus and wants to help fulfill the Great Commission. You’ve followed God’s lead, made a life, and invested in people, culture, and opportunities. You’re not a saint, so you’re also frustrated with people, annoyed by situations you can’t control, and wondering if you’re making any difference. Does this sound familiar?
There is a beautiful, though less traveled path in cross-cultural service, in which you do not have to choose either a “successful” cross-cultural life or a healthy and balanced one. Here’s how . . .
The Annual Debrief course is a comprehensive self-debriefing course for cross-cultural workers to be able to debrief anywhere, any time, for a reasonable cost. With a time commitment of two hours a day for 7 days or an intensive weekend, you can debrief the past 12 months and prepare for the next 12.
Human nature tends to remember either the good or the hard. But healthy people create space to accurately see and honor all parts of their year. Why is this important? It allows you to enter the next 12 months with less baggage and unintended consequences because you processed both the good and the hard.
We believe that
Debriefing is like doing laundry.
If you debrief on a regular basis, your life and ministry are likely be more useful. Why? Because you know what’s in your metaphorical closet, addressed things before permanent damage occurred, and took proper care of individual items. Our hope is that this course will become an annual part of your year. This packet is designed for you to use every twelve months so that enough life has happened to sort through, but not so much that you are overwhelmed by the task.
Each day you will focus on a different type of laundry so that by the end of these seven days, you will have sorted out and “washed” six different types of loads. And just like washing your physical clothes, note that each week, you may not have the exact same amount in every load. Similarly, you can see how your debrief “loads” can change each year. Laundry isn’t done just once, and neither is debriefing. But we hope this course is more fun than doing laundry!
We have also designed a supplemental course for families called the Annual Family Debrief. Following the same six loads of laundry your family can recall, process, and create a shared family language that will help keep your family bonds strong.
Available June 3rd-13th, get the early bird price June 3rd-6th.
Annual Debrief will be $147 with the early bird price $97.
Annual Debrief AND Annual Family Debrief will be $197 with the early bird price $147.
Thankfully, you don’t have to let your life laundry pile up . . . sort through and process the last 12 months, focusing each day on what was unique, the joys, the sorrows, the areas to be gentle, what needs to stay private, and the parts that are your “just because!” Videos, scriputures, prompts, and charts will guide you through the debrief.
This course is only open for registration from June 3-10 (though once you have it, you’ll have lifetime access). Don’t miss out!
Early bird price ends June 6th, midnight MST.
