LightStream is a two-year cohort journey, featuring exceptional faculty drawn from the world’s best discipleship, formation and leadership programmes. Students have the unique opportunity to engage face-to-face with global thinkers and practitioners through live-in retreats across Australia. Our heart is to equip and release intentional communities of people who are fully alive and freely aligned, acting as agents of transformation in God’s Kingdom.
When you join the LightStream Experience you will:
/ be a part of a national cohort of fellow learners
/ participate in four retreats over two years with leading global thinkers and practitioners, engaging in meaningful head, hand and heart learning
/ integrate learning and action through guided reading and reflection
/ learn with the support of innovative resources
/ engage in authentic leadership training that equips us to invest our transformed selves into broader ministry and community contexts.
The LightStream Experience has four retreats shaped around a five day rhythm, running from Tuesday to Saturday. The retreats explore the following themes:
1/ Becoming the Beloved – (Was held in March 2018)
2/ Rhythm of Life – 18-22 September 2018 – with Jan Johnson from USA
3/ Transformation in Community – Feb / Mar 2019
4/ Living into the Black – Aug / Sep 2019
