TCK Workers Retreat next week

Today’s short post is a request for your prayers. Next week in Thailand several TCK workers from China and Cambodia will meet for a thee day retreat. Several people had to pull out so it will be a small group, but with a diverse range of roles, working with youth from 5 different international churches.

The goal of the retreat is to provide a retreat space for ministers, encourage networking among TCK workers, and create a forum for discussing some of the unique needs of TCKs. Please think of the group next week and ask that there would be relaxation, connection, and stimulating conversation.

YiA Retreat for TCK Workers – Register Now!

The TCK Workers’ retreat will be held at Dolphin Bay in Thailand on October 3-6. We will be staying/meeting/eating at the Juniper Tree, a Christian guesthouse by the beach near Huahin.

The retreat is aimed at anyone who sees their primary calling (whether longterm or “right now”) as working with TCK youth, especially those living and working in Asia. This includes paid and volunteer church staff, bible study leaders, and teachers with a heart for ministering to their students.

The retreat has four main aims:
  1. Retreat – space for Christian TCK workers to relax
  2. Networking/Fellowship – meet and connect with other TCK workers
  3. Targeted training – discussion about issues specific to TCK work
  4. Spiritual uplifting – devotions, sharing, corporate prayer and worship

The main program is happening on the 4th and 5th (Tuesday and Wednesday). The assumption is that some people won’t be able to come early, and others won’t be able to stay late, so feel free to make arrangements based on your own time constraints.

3 nights’ accommodation (two people per room with laundry included) and meals will be provided. There are limited funded places available, but please pass this information along to anyone you believe would be interested.

If we run out of space, or you’d like to stay somewhere fancier, there are other guesthouses/resorts just up the road. YiA won’t be able to cover accommodation costs for these places but the option is there.
