Events within DC

There are a number of key events within DC —the Spiritual Disciplines retreat, Marriage Events, “Next Steps”, and Graduation. We provide a calendar as an overview. And we have basic information on all of these events here. If you have any questions about why or how we do these, don’t hesitate to drop us a line.

There are other “events” within DC that are described briefly in the Leaders Guide—mid-break meetings, socials, and service projects. These are important for providing accountability on the Bible Reading during the “semester breaks”, building relationships in your group, and developing a servant’s heart.

Soul Transformation Retreats

Gentlemen, have you come to a place in your spiritual journey that you think, "There has to be more?"  Would you like more margin in your life for the relationships that really matter?  Is there a fear that creeps in when you think of slowing down enough to really look at what is happening beneath the surface of a busy life?  Is your soul longing for more?  Come take a journey of Soul Transformation with Pastors Kurt Sauder and Tim Reist.  Soul Transformation Retreats are a series of getaways over the course of a year designed to explore and embrace the relationship that God desires with all of us.  It is an invitation to come and rest in Him.  Life has a way of slowly draining everything out of us until one day we wake up and realize we are living dangeroulsy tired, not just physically, but deep down in the most sacred place of all: our soul.
