FOCUS Alumni Mini-Retreat in DC

Jesus’s last words on earth are a powerful directive: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit (Mt. 28:19). No matter our upbringing, skill set, or personality, we are all called to make disciples. But to do that, we must fully enter into being disciples ourselves.

Whether you have been following Jesus and sharing Him with others for years, or you have a new desire to be on mission with Him to others, this retreat will allow you to deeply encounter the Person of Jesus and His mission for your life. This retreat will explore the heart of what it means to live as a disciple and how to invite others along with you on that journey. Come away for a weekend and be reminded of the Lord’s promise in the midst of His missionary invitation: “Behold, I am with you always, to the close of the age” (Mt. 28:20).
