The Syzygy Calendar



The Global Member Care Conference  is being organized by COMIBAM and the Global Member Care Network.  The conference theme is Emerging Waves of Care.  Waves of global care are emerging from Africa, Asia and South America to provide care for cross-cultural workers sent from these regions.  The challenge is to expand our thinking to envision culturally sensitive care applications that give attention to the sending context and culture.  Care models are needed that encompass group-based culture and an extended family system.

Dates: 10-14 September

Location: Seminario Sudamericano, Quito, Ecuador

TRACTION is a 6-day experience designed to encourage global workers who serve in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.  TRACTION is different than any other kind of conference. It isn’t about filling notebooks or honing leadership skills. It is about living as single men, husbands, fathers, leaders, and as guys who deal with tremendous stresses cross-culturally.  This conference is focused on helping men navigate their roles to regain spiritual footing and momentum to move forward.

Dates: 19-25 September

Location: Wilderswil, Switzerland

The retreat aims to provide a safe place for reflection and encounter with God and ourselves.

We’ll be exploring how it is possible to live and lead from a place of abiding in Christ – a place where Christ lives his life through us, rather than us trying to live for Christ. We’ll spend time discovering the roots of how we have learnt to live out of our own strength and resources; the common struggles we encounter within ourselves and what may be their source.

Dates: 30 September – 3 October

Location: Penhurst Retreat Centre
