June 2019 Spiritual Formation Symposium

Meeting on the beautiful campus of Denver Seminary, with the Rocky Mountains as our backdrop, this pristine space for reflection and renewal is ideal for the heart, mind, body and soul.

If you are a leader in search of a community-based, thought-provoking, learning experience then LTI’s upcoming Spiritual Formation Symposium Series is for YOU.

After a fruitful anniversary of our inaugural year, LTI is pleased to offer the first of two 2019 Symposiums on leaders and teams from June 26-28, 2019 in Denver, CO. Meeting on the beautiful campus of Denver Seminary, with the Rocky Mountains as our backdrop, this pristine space for reflection and renewal is ideal for the heart, mind, body and soul. And this year’s offering is one you will not want to miss.

The teaching and facilitation team will include author and spiritual director Alice Fryling, founder of Anam Cara Ministries Tara Owens, pastor/author/musician Glenn Packiam, as well as LTI executive vice president Rick Anderson and LTI founder and president Steve Macchia. We are very excited about this year’s presenters, who will provide excellent material for your prayerful and practical consideration.

Our goal is to create a spacious learning environment, offer a pre-symposium workshop on the Enneagram, and a half-day Soul Sabbath, which will round off the entire experience. Leisurely mealtimes, group conversations, and a well-paced schedule will be inviting for all. We are most excited about the fruit of these three days, as evidenced in what attendees take back into their personal lives and ministry contexts.

We believe the greatest need in the Church today is to have an experiential knowledge of God.

LTI’s new Spiritual Formation Symposium Series will help you lean into that desire with earnest prayerfulness and open-handed receptivity. Group size is limited, so it’s the better side of wisdom to register today and secure your place. Our hope is that each symposium will be informative, formative and transformative for all.

PS – Register below today to reserve your spot at the early bird. See you there!

Mitzi Mak

Selah-West Faculty

Mitzi started her professional life as a high school social studies teacher. She and her husband Jerry then served cross-culturally for ten+ years, living abroad first in India and then Kurdistan, N. Iraq. In addition to being a Spiritual Director, she now serves as a Formation and Care pastor in her local church in Houston, TX. She has graduated from LTI’s Selah Spiritual Direction training as well as LTI’s Emmaus Formational Leadership Program.

Mitzi enjoys engaging conversation, reading fiction, doing jigsaw/crossword puzzles, ocean gazing and exploring the world with Jerry through food and travel.

God has two main callings in Mitzi’s life: to care for those who care for others and to be a guide in helping others have a healthy relationship with the Trinity – recognizing God’s loving presence and activity in their lives and how to faithfully respond.

Selah was a transformative experience for me – allowing the contemplative within to emerge and to beautifully co-exist with my extraverted personality.
