Retreat 3: Sacred Pathways


We’re all unique. Wired in our own ways. It’s the way God made us, and that diversity is a beautiful thing.

At this retreat we will discover and unpack our natural abilities and how to use them more effectively in all areas of our lives. This will be based on the Highlands Ability Battery, a fantastic assessment tool that every intern will do as part of the internship program.

As well, we will explore the ways we naturally connect with God which align with the unique way God has designed us. Based on the book Sacred Pathways by Gary Thomas, we will discover and embrace how our own soul best connects with our Maker.

Mike and Melri Wright have worked with youth and youth workers for more than 20 years and are currently part of the team that directs Ledge Leadership, an organization that develops young leaders.

At Ledge, we have found that people are able to lead and impact others more effectively when they come from a place of understanding their own abilities, strengths, and challenges. As a result, we work with people to help them discover their natural abilities and how they can use that knowledge to make decisions about future education, career paths, and lead more effectively. Mike and Melri are dedicated to helping individuals develop their capacity to become leaders who Risk, Reflect, and Relate as a way of life.
