Former Volunteer Retreat: Discerning Vocation Amid Turbulent Times

April 7-9, 2017
Cascades Camp and Conference Center
JVC Northwest, in partnership with Mission Year and Brethren Volunteer Service, are putting on two retreats during the first weekend of April 2017, one in the Pacific Northwest, one in the Chicagoland area. The retreats will focus on “Discerning Vocation Amid Turbulent Times”, and will focus on themes of discernment, combating injustice, self-care, community, and vocation. This registration page is for the Pacific Northwest retreat.

Our Pacific Northwest retreat will be led by Jack Kennedy and Sara Jones. Jack Kennedy is a former Jesuit Catholic priest who now works as a full-time Spiritual Director to clients and friends across generations and the religious spectrum. Jack’s work has been deeply informed by the Ignatian spirituality he was immersed in as a priest, but is also grounded in the wisdom of several religious traditions and cosmology. Sara Jones is a former Lutheran Volunteer and Peace Corps volunteer who explored several career paths for over 10 years before becoming a certified professional coach that works specifically with former volunteers to, in her words, “help other former volunteers reignite themselves after their service commitments to create their next empowered chapters”.

Attendees can expect a relaxed environment among former volunteers who have engaged in a year or more of service and are looking for ways to continue living out and cultivating the values they hold most dear, both professionally, personally, and spiritually. WiFi access is limited, please plan accordingly.

The cost for this weekend retreat is only $35 thanks to the generous support of the Forum for Theological Exploration.

Please email JVC Northwest’s Outreach and Events Coordinator, Zach, at with any questions or comments.


This event is fully booked.
