Doors Open! Aging Parents Cohort

Aug 1, 2023 | 2 comments

With aging parents, it’s common to feel:

—Torn between wanting (and needing) to help them and your own ministry.

—Alone. Your teammates mean well, but they don’t really get it.

—Overwhelmed by all of the issues that exist with aging parents.

You do not need to go it alone when it comes to navigating aging parents and cross-cultural work.

For the next 12 months you can be part of a community who is walking a similar path. Enrollment opens in August 2023 and the cohort runs from September 2023 to August 2024.

“Before joining the Aging Parents Cohort I felt I was in a whirlwind of change in our family and decisions that loomed on the horizon, but I didn’t feel I had a safe place to process it. Processing the possibilities of leaving the field didn’t always feel safe with people in our organization, and friends back in my passport country didn’t always understand the complexities of dealing with the international aspects of what we are facing. 

“The experience has been great. Each session has had something I could take away to ponder and pray through. But my favorite part was the time of sharing at the beginning of each session; the time of sharing helps me feel less alone in this journey and I have an opportunity every month to consider this aspect of my life.”

    Question – If I sign up for the Aging Parents Cohort, what do I get for the $147? Do I need to pay for each workshop ($9.99) as it is live? What if I just sign up for the Cohort?
