The Single Vision Connection

  Single Vision is the first Member Care program designed to precisely address the needs of
  single adults who serve cross-culturally.  The renewal retreat has been in existence for 15
  years with annual programs held in  Europe and  Asia.  Single Vision is formed by  multiple
  service organizations with the focus to  serve the  needs of  single  servants  globally.   All
  have long-term overseas service experience as single adults and speak from personal
  experience of what it means to thrive and maintain balance in a constant changing atmosphere
  abroad as Christian workers.



  
"Single Vision" is designed to…  
  renew the inner man, physical, emotional, social and ministry skills. To be refreshed as you
  share time together with other singles in an informal setting; to talk over challenges and to
  hear about how God is at work in a variety of countries.




  PROGRAM FORMAT

  • Music is a key component of the program as we seek to focus and to spend time in a reflective  
          devotional atmosphere.
  • There will be a two hour seminar daily followed by further discussion in a small group setting.
          Topics focus on enhancing the life of single servants and to sharpen ministry skills. "Single
         
 Vision" is designed to enhance conversations in a small group format about serving single.  
  • Counseling is available in English, German and Chinese for individuals who would desire to
          speak with a counselor privately.
  • There are a variety of afternoon and evening activities for refreshment.





  ACTIVITIES

  Low impact activities are available to offer the opportunity to enjoy some fresh air, exercise,        
  and a few laughs together as a group.  Activities range from sitting on the beach with a book or         
  taking a swim, seeing the elephants and wild life, a visit to the local night street market, enjoying
