Learn to Love the Word!

September 16-18, 2022

You don’t have to be Intimidated by the Bible anymore. As followers of Christ, we are commanded to read and study God’s Word, yet most of us were not taught how or thought we needed years at a seminary. The Choose to Soar team has a great passion to help you Encounter God in His Word and we want you to come join us and learn an approach in reading the Scripture that is life changing.

After It Breaks

October 28-30, 2022

Has your heart been broken? Maybe you are stuck on what has ended. Rebuilding after a loss is a challenge no matter what type of loss you have faced. Whether your loss is due to death, divorce, career, or another major transition in life, grief can be your daily companion and filter you view life with. God desires to begin again. Come join us for a weekend and let the Choose to Soar team guide you to a Biblical perspective on loss and suffering. Learn to rebuild your life as you encounter liberating truths instead of limiting beliefs.

Lead with Passion!

Are you leading with passion? Does the path you’re on capture your heart? There is always a price paid in energy, time, money, and pain to succeed.
