Call us crazy. At one point or another the people at Three to Abandon woke up and were ready to take the next great generations seriously. To invest in uncovering their talents, hopes, and desires God gave them. We couldn't stop imagining a future where people like us were confidently pursuing what they were created for.  Why couldn't we have that? What's prevented it from happening already?

The answer: three small words that carry a lot of baggage - doubt, insecurity and fear.

Three things that limit all of humanity; three things we all need to abandon. 

So we asked, “What could the next generation do if they abandoned these things? What could they do if they let these specific human emotions go and discovered the purpose that was meant for them?”

That's when we created The Abandon Experience, a 5-day trip intended to uncover these things, using an approach inspired by Jesus' time on earth through mentorship, discipleship, missions, challenging the world, challenging self, leading and loving.


So the question remains: can we ultimately discover our life purpose and begin to restore love to our World by abandoning three things?

Time will tell, along with less than 133 candidates in 2019.






Officially, we're a nonprofit. 

Unofficially, we're an unconventional society, a body, your brothers and sisters. We're here to mentor, coach, guide and challenge each other. We commit ourselves to experiences, interactions and inspiration that do just that.

We're dusting off the misunderstood word "obedience" to explore what it means for our individual lives. 

Together we confront what we need to abandon. 

Together we seek to unearth our individual life purposes.

Together we have experiences that all lead us to God's greater plan.

Together we will LIVE ON PURPOSE.



Finding and supplying the purpose we all seek is really a spiritual journeyIt 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:  a world where everyone is fearlessly pursuing their God-given purpose.

MISSION:  to mentor, coach and create experiences that help humanity abandon the things that limit them, understand how they're uniquely made, and unearth their life's purpose.



Where psychology, coaching, mentoring and Christianity collide

The process unfolds during a 5-day trip somewhere unique and private in the U.S., in what we call The Abandon Experience.

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, using an exclusive and highly researched Purpose Curriculum. It is biblically-based, developed using modern psychology and coaching techniques, and we're there to mentor and disciple the community through the entire process!

The Abandon Experience is limited to U.S. and Canadian residents only, ages 20-40, and people interested in the trip must first apply to be chosen. The application process for the trips isn't about exclusivity, but about really understanding each individual, in order to strategically group people together for the few trips we have each year!
