ABOUT THREE TO ABANDON
In 2015, sitting in small office spaces and coffee shops, the founders of Three to Abandon were working on a project for another Christian non-profit. Ideas were pitched, surveys evaluated, information dissected, but one strange detail stood out among it all; we found that some adults often came back to the U.S. feeling aimless and purposeless after serving in various ways around the world. At the time it made no sense at all. Why were some believers left feeling lost after they had come back from serving incredible communities in incredible places for an incredible calling? Because they just didn't understand how it was supposed to fit into the big picture of their life. Their service wasn't lost on the communities they reached, but the people serving needed direction too...
More research showed the need to understand life purpose was a recurring theme not just limited to people pursuing the great commission or even just to Christians. The search for purpose, as you may guess, is astonishingly pervasive across the millennial generation, generations before and after it, across all races and ethnicities, for both men and women. And even if someone eventually discovers their purpose, will the three things that limit all humanity - doubt, insecurity, and fear - hold them back from actually pursuing it? Will they have the tools to abandon those three things (and more) in order to chase what God has for them? Without real mentorship or community or truth, probably not. Every year hundreds of thousands of people search Google for answers surrounding their life purpose and how to actually pursue it.
Finding and supplying the purpose we all seek is really a spiritual journey. It goes beyond a career. It looks past the world's definition of purpose. It involves Jesus. Imagine the impact of a generation who is confident in how they fit into the body of Christ. Imagine the impact of a generation where everyone was doing what they were truly made for. This is the dream we're committed to.
VISION & MISSION
A world where everyone is fearlessly pursuing their God-given purpose.
To mentor, coach and create experiences that help people abandon the things that limit them, understand how they're uniquely made, and unearth their life's purpose.
HOW we do it
Pursuing purpose is a balance of abandoning self, and embracing self*
(*Mark 8:35, Romans 12:4-8) So that's exactly what we focus on - a balance of abandoning self and embracing self - using an exclusive and highly researched Purpose Curriculum, which is both biblically-based and developed using modern psychology and coaching techniques! You can go through the process in one of two ways: either during a 5-day trip (The Abandon Experience) or online in 4 to 8 weeks depending on your pace (Abandon Experience Virtual).
