Staying the Course

Presented by Eric and Rachel Dufour

Are you feeling overwhelmed by your life on the field, but not sure where to start? Do you fear you are on the path to burnout? Eric and Rachel Dufour, veterans who have served in both open and closed contexts, will equip you to unjumble your priorities. The workshop will allow you to reflect on the order your priorities are currently and how to practically reorder them, so that you stay the course spiritually, relationally, emotionally, and physically. Filled with practical theology and tips, you can join with the apostle Paul who said, “Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!” and allows me to do the good I want to do. You can avoid overwhelm and burnout.

Eric and Rachel’s Bio:

Eric and Rachel Dufour, prominent counselors and international speakers, passionately believe in healthy marriages, healthy families and healthy servants of God.

They began in 1991 and focused on women in distress and drug addicts. In 2000, they and their five young sons moved to SE Asia. Serving God on the field was very challenging, but He used their painful journey through a life-threatening cancer and the depression that ensued, to shape their ministry. In 2008 they moved to Colorado and began offering comprehensive marriage counseling to pastors and cross-cultural workers from all over the globe. Founding Serving Alongside Ministry (SAM), they provide week-long, intensive marriage counseling sessions for those who have dedicated their lives to growing the kingdom of God.

How long do I have access to a workshop?
Forever! Once you purchase a workshop it will be added to your personal portfolio called “My Trellis.” Enter the username and password you created and you will find all of your workshops in “My Trellis.” You may watch a workshop as often as you like.
Can I pause my workshop?
Yes, you can pause at any time—for instance to take notes—and then continue listening when you are ready.
How long is a workshop?

They are videos that tend to run between 45 and 55 minutes. We want you to get your money’s worth without being overloaded.

What is the “notes” feature
I don’t know about you, but I have notes written in this notebook, or on that piece of paper, or on a handout . . . that I either I can’t find, or forget about. We want you to be able to have all of your notes in one place that you can easily access. Every workshop will have a “notes” button below the video, click on it and a notebook will open up on the right-hand side. You may take notes as you listen to the workshop. When you are finished, click save” and your notes will be saved in the “Notes” section of your My Trellis. You may also print or download your notes. At any time you can edit, add to, or delete from your notes. We have formatted your notes so that when you download them they look nice and you shouldn’t need to reformat.
How much does a workshop cost?

The month that a workshop goes live, it is available for $9.99. After the initial month, the workshop will still be available for $19.

Who can participate?
All are welcome! While the Workshop is crafted especially for people who are serving overseas or plan to serve overseas, many of the workshops will offer something to anyone with an interest in Christian cross-cultural work. If you purchase a workshop, it is intended for you and one other (a spouse if married, or teammate if single). Many workshops will be beneficial for a team to watch and discuss together. On the honor system, please purchase the appropriate amount or contact Amy for a group discount.
I clicked on the workshop in My Trellis and nothing worked.
I think you might have clicked on the workshop graphic art. Scroll down and near the bottom of the page you will see Course Content. Under course content you will see the name of the workshop you purchased. Click on the title and you will be able to watch the video.
Do you have closed captioning or subtitles?
At this point, no we do not. The workshops are presented in English.
What if I am a more sensitive area of the world?
We are aware of your sensitivities! I have asked presenters not to use the “m” word and instead talk about cross-cultural work, global workers, and our line of work. You, however, know your context and if these guidelines are enough for you.
