Chosen: A Study in God's People-Creating Project  

Dr. Michael Chan will lead this One-day Retreat

From the time of Abraham and Sarah, God has been creating and fashioning a people with an important purpose in this world. Born out of barrenness and liberation, the people of God have been on a long journey marked by promise, peril, and tragedy. This event invites you to consider how God's ongoing work to shape a people continues in your own lives and ministry contexts.    

This event is for any and all lay leaders who wish to revisit the Chosen life of God’s people as heard within the Old Testament. Whether you are new to Scripture or a seasoned Bible reader, this day will bring you new insight, and inspiration for growing closer to the God who chooses people for a life of calling and connection.   

Themes of the 5 segments of the Retreat:
  • Barrenness and Promise: Abraham and Sarah  
  • Bondage and Liberation: Exodus
  • A People under Covenant: Exodus-Numbers (the Sinai covenant)   
  • A People in the Shadow of Defeat: 2 Kings 23-25, Jeremiah  
  • Returning and Rebuilding: Isaiah 56-66, Ezra-Nehemiah, Haggai-Zechariah
