The Abandon Experience
is a trip dedicated to you and unearthing His purpose for you. Something like a hybrid of a getaway and spiritual retreat, these 5-day experiences were created for Christians looking for a little something new in their life that's God-inspired, purpose-focused, and unique. We're looking to give only 130 people the opportunity to join us in 2017/2018. Apply for free at the bottom of this page- give us some authentic details about who you are - and see if one of the limited spots has your name on it.
Purpose is a big concept, and it's a big promise to make to the people we choose for this. That's where our comprehensive Purpose Guide - an exclusive curriculum - comes into play. It's realistic, educational, inspiring and challenging all at once. It melds the concept of YOU and the truth of God in a way that offers you freedom and motivation after the trip ends. Psychology, coaching tools, wisdom from the book "Purpose Driven Life", and Bible excerpts were combined to create one incredible tool for you. Short readings, self-assessment tests, life worksheets and powerful discussion questions help create an environment of deep exploration.
Dates are TBD! Exact dates will be based on the availability you give us when you apply (below) and the availability of others who've applied!
We set up the experience in relaxing, unique, and private locations in the U.S. If we offer you a spot, we'll send you the exact location details at that time.
Once you hit the location of your experience, breakfast, lunch and dinner are on us! Imagine homemade deliciousness, borderline gourmet, something your Italian grandma might make.
Forget hotels. This experience is meant to encourage a new-found community, so we'll stay in awesome multi-bedroom abodes and have lots of space to roam and discover.
In-depth analysis of your personality factors and more. Group activities and discussions with no more than 8 -10 people that challenge your heart, mind and soul. One-on-one mentoring/coaching through our highly researched and proven Purpose curriculum. A customized life game plan on how to become who you're meant to be and chase what you're really called to do.
A few days of God bringing together a group of very diverse, talented, believers. Catching up on some spiritual R&R. A good balance of a little seriousness and a little humor. And a few solid days of being truly disconnected from the world but truly connected to others around you. Not to mention, learning more about yourself and your life than you ever have before.
As we mentioned above, we use a highly researched and proven Purpose Curriculum that's founded on psychology, coaching, mentoring and Christian principles. You'll have a plethora of activities and resources to use, and go through exercises such as life vision development. You'll also be strategically paired with other applicants that have both similarities and vast differences with you (hence, why we ask you to apply and tell us about yourself!) This strategy helps you and your group members both relate and learn from each other, as well as challenge each other's perspectives. Every group ends up with its own incredible dynamic and authentic members.
When/if you're chosen, it's just $33 to secure your spot if you accept it. And to cover ALL your incredible lodging, your food, your purpose activities, and individualized mentoring, it's just $987 (generally less than a normal 5-day trip.) Even better - you can cover the cost over several months with just 21 small payments of $47. Want to make it even cheaper? Utilize our free fundraising resources and coaching.
But first, simply apply for free. See if you're chosen. The opportunity to discover His purpose for your life doesn't come around every day! And unfortunately, spots are limited.
