Sojourn Christmas 2018

One of my favorite events each year is our Sojourn Christmas. We come together for a couple hours and soak in the season. Fun food. Lots of laughter. Making space to focus on Jesus and to sit still and think and be a bit curious. Of course, there are crafts and lots of giveaways- Dienna’s favorite things will be in full force.

We hope you will join us.

Empowered Schedule



2017 Sojourn Retreat


February 3 @ 7 pm – February 4 @ 3 pm

Ramada Plaza Minneapolis » 1330 Industrial Blvd. N.E., Mpls., MN 55413

Phone: 612.331.1900 »

Identity. Such a hard subject. We think we’ve got it all figured out and then life changes, things shift and we start to doubt. We get 3000 messages a day that tell us we aren’t enough- the way we look, the things we have, our actions, our work, our family.

Sometimes the wounds from our past keep us from believing we are enough in Christ. Sometimes the present circumstances make it hard to believe that we have worth. Sometimes fear of the future creates anxiety and doubts about the person God says we are.

Everyone struggles with identity at some point in their life. Let’s be brave and tackle this subject together. It won’t be easy for me, either. But I promise it will be worth it.

NEW: College student, military or High School junior/senior: Your retreat cost is on us!


$65 includes retreat materials, 1 appetizer type late snack, 2 meals and 3 sessions                   ($25 for Friday night only/$50 for Saturday only)

We have a “pay what you can” philosophy. It costs us at least $65 a person to put on the retreat so we ask that you pay that if you can. If you need to pay less, that is fine. No questions asked. If you can pay more, please do so!

We believe in the end it will cover what we need.
