The Retreat


A 4-day workshop in Belize

 

Junkyard Wisdom: Belize isn’t about self-discovery—it’s about others-discovery.

You go to your church small group, you’re willing to ask the hard questions, and you read books like Junkyard Wisdom to learn more about how to evaluate and use your wealth. Now it’s time to step outside the cultural walls that keep you surrounded with others who are far too similar: western, wealthy, comfortable. On the other side of those walls you’ll find a future in which you truly come alive. You’ll enjoy greater purpose, deeper relationships, and kingdom challenges that require your particular skills and gifts, and a daily sense of God’s presence that is beyond value.

 

 

When?

February 15 - 19, 2017

Where?

Jaguar Creek | Belize, Central America

 

 

Four mornings of revelatory, relational workshops on wealth, purpose, and scripture that will bring you closer to the heart of God…and the heart of what God is calling you to do.

Four afternoons of whatever you need, from zip-lining to catching some Zs in a hammock. You can explore the Mayan ruins dotting the landscape, savor fresh fruit and vegetables grown at our onsite farm, share a cooking lesson in a nearby village, explore St. Herman’s Cave by flashlight, or grab a machete and hike through the rainforest. And each day you’ll have the opportunity to begin genuine relationships—perhaps over a homemade meal—with rural Belizeans who are working to build their communities. 

The value of Junkyard Wisdom: Belize increases after you arrive back in the States.

You’ll apply what you’ve learned to new situations, new relationships, and new adventures. You won’t have all the answers, but you’ll have better questions, and the wisdom you need for the coming journey.

Jaguar Creek, Belize 17.1613° N, 88.6801° W

In the heart of the Maya Mountain Rainforest. One minute from a river. One hour from the Caribbean Sea. Thirty minutes from the English-speaking capital of Belmopan.

Jaguar Creek is the kind of place where everything can finally come into focus. 

At the intersection of hardship and indescribable natural beauty—and removed from life back home, yet only two hours from Miami, Dallas, or Houston—Jaguar Creek is where people come to pray, learn, and grow.

"Roy Goble is a successful entrepreneur with a grand plan. In my circles—Silicon Valley startups and brand evangelism—that’s not unusual. What is unusual is that Roy’s weapon of choice is hope.

Read this book if you want to learn another way to change the world."

- Guy Kawasaki, former chief evangelist of Apple

 

"To truly help vulnerable people around the globe, we’ve got to be smarter and do better. As Roy shares in Junkyard Wisdom, real philanthropy doesn’t start with a check, but a challenge: are you willing to help another person? Roy Goble has accepted that challenge, and he inspires his readers to do the same." 

- Jacquelline Fuller, President of Google.org and Google Foundation
