The Elusive Dream Leaders Retreat
THE ELUSIVE DREAM RETREAT
If you’ve listened to season one of The Elusive Dream Podcast then get ready for a deeper dive with Dr. Korie Little Edwards and Pastor Rich Johnson with The Elusive Dream Retreat. The Elusive Dream Retreat is an intimate retreat designed for the nurture and care of religious leaders in the body of Christ who minister to people of color. Participants will learn how racism and racial injustice, which has fractured the beloved family of Christ, impacts our churches and organizations. More importantly, participants will be guided through a process of interior spiritual formation that encourages spiritual and emotional wellness and growth. In the American context, this includes becoming aware of and deconstructing the white supremacist beliefs and narratives we have internalized so that we can see and embrace our belovedness and true identity as children of the most High God. The Elusive Dream Retreat will be a sacred time and space set aside just for you to grow in freedom and fulfillment in your unique position of service in the body of Christ. It is our hope that you will join us on this journey where you take time to focus on yourself, rest, learn, grow, and be seen and heard.
