How can our Agency be Involved?
The Journey Deepens is an effective tool for mission agencies to utilize in their mobilization efforts. The retreat objective is to serve the Body of Christ by linking mission explorers with sending agencies.
There are several ways missions agencies can use The Journey Deepens in mobilization. One is to serve as a coach for the retreat; another is for the agency to host a retreat, and an additional way is for agency representatives to join us on Saturday only to set up an agency display, to enjoy lunch with us and set up individual appointments with the prospective missionaries at the retreat.

During the TJD retreat at Warm Beach, 2014, I was able to walk away with practical next steps. I came to the realization that God would take me one step at a time. I didn't have to know everything at that exact moment.
Once I got home, I followed each of the steps I made for myself and as God brought me through them, His plan began to unfold before my eyes. One of the impacting things I learned on the retreat is that I don't have to know everything right now. God knows the whole plan and that's what matters!
A few weeks after the retreat, my church had our annual mission conference and I was able to chat with a couple who works with the organization I was looking into. They encouraged me to attend a 9 month ministry internship in the Northwest. Throughout the spring and summer, I contacted the organization and saw God clear a path. In the fall I moved to begin the internship. In November, I was accepted by the organization as an appointee and I will hopefully be going to North Africa in about a year! Kendra
