The Invitation

The Soul Care & Your Story small-group cohort is designed to prioritize your heart and your story as a leader. We believe that leaders whose hearts are open before God and a few other people to receive healing, wisdom, direction, and compassion are leaders who will make the greatest impact for good on the world around them. It’s rare that we need more information, or even another new skill. More than anything, we need our hearts tended with grace.
Soul Care & Your Story cohorts are limited to six people in order to cultivate a protected space where participants are able to:
  • notice important parts of themselves and their story that have been ignored, pushed to the side, or considered impossible
  • learn how to be non-judgmental and curious about their own hearts and emotions
  • practice sharing their hearts and stories with others
  • learn to discern and listen for God’s voice for themselves and in community
  • gain strength by hearing the stories of others and experiencing connection found in sharing joys and sorrows

The Leaders

The Soul Care & Your Story cohorts are administered by Steve and Jamie Wiechman of Breathe Life Ministries. Steve and Jamie led a highly-praised support session at SILS 2021 and have years of experience running spiritual retreats and providing one-on-one and small group care. They write:
Our experience is that cultivating this kind of space and vulnerability with God and a few others is the life-blood of not only leadership, but simply life itself. By the end of our month together you will be able to cultivate this kind of space with your own group. And we think you’ll want to, because having your own heart restored is so powerfully refreshing. You might even move it to the top of your “to do” list!
