When a person tells his story and is truly heard and understood, he undergoes actual changes in his brain circuitry that corresponds to a greater sense of emotional and relational connection, decreased anxiety, and greater awareness of and compassion for others’ suffering.

—Curt Thompson, M.D., Anatomy of the Soul

Join us for a four-day debriefing retreat designed especially for global servants engaged in cross-cultural ministry. Interlude is a time to reflect, process, and tell your story to experienced, trained debriefers as well as a small group of your peers.

What will you do at this retreat?

  • Reflect on relevant life questions in a safe environment
  • Share and process your story with experienced, trained debriefers
  • Participate in debriefing activities with a small group of peers
  • Integrate past challenges and successes into your life story
  • Begin to look toward the next step of your journey

In the mornings, you will participate in a time of worship and a brief devotion related to topics such as Jesus as the master debriefer, surrender and forgiveness, grief and loss, and change. These will be followed by individual and small group activities designed to facilitate the telling of your story.

In the afternoons there will be opportunity for individuals and couples to tell their story to Barnabas staff members who are trained and experienced in helping you process and integrate your ministry story.

At the Colorado Interlude, children (6 years +) will be debriefed in a separate program following the same themes as their parents using hands-on, fun, group and individual exercises. At the end of the 4 day session, a special Family Bonus Day will be provided in which families will come together to be debriefed as a family unit.
