Information and FAQs
Faithwalking 101 – Accepting the Call to a Missional Life Faithwalking 101 is the beginning of your Faithwalking journey. In FW 101, participants are challenged to accept the call to the missional life in their neighborhoods and workplaces – especially in ways that form relationships with the poor, the marginalized, or the oppressed. The missional life is the fully human life of radical love that Jesus models for people and calls people to embrace. In the retreat, participants are challenged to (1) identify any obstacles to missional living, (2) learn how to build spiritual muscles that overcome these obstacles, and (3) commit to engage the journey of learning to live missionally. FW 101 is also offered in an eight-week weekly series. The retreat has a rhythm of presentations, solitude, and small group discussion. Retreat leaders work to produce a shame-free environment so that participants can reflect deeply on their relationship with God and on what they need to learn in order to live missionally. Key Concepts in the 101 Retreat We believe God calls people to be his beloved children on mission with God in the world. When individuals live into their design as God's beloved, they live the abundant, eternal kind of life here and now. We call this being fully human and fully alive. This is a life full of purpose, joy, and deep connection to self, others, and God. We believe that during childhood, individuals experience emotional wounds and unmet needs that never get addressed. As a result, they make a vow(s) about how they will show up in relationships in order to be safe. This works for a child or for a short period of time in adult relationships. But if the person doesn’t address the wounds and unmet needs, they will end up with a child running their adult life, or they will live trapped by their past. We believe that in order to live the fully human life, individuals must partner with God to find healing for those wounds and freedom from those vows. With healing and freedom, there is renewed capacity to grow into the true self that God designed for each person and thereby more fully engage the missional life without getting stopped or stuck.
