Walk with confidence into the work God is calling you to do

If you find yourself stuck at a crossroads, not knowing which way to take, Road Ahead helps you get unstuck and discern your next steps. Rooted in research and refined over time, our process is designed to help you address your work-related pain points so that you can walk with confidence into the work God is calling you to do.

Road Ahead is a six-week group experience that helps you take meaningful steps in your career by attending to the inner work God has for you during seasons of transition or disruption. It begins with listening to your STORY, that will then explore how your current pain points reveal the LONGINGS of your heart. From there we connect your longings with EMPATHY for the world around you, opening up new possibilities to IMAGINE what your next steps might be so that you can take that next doable RISK.

It is life-changing.

Come and experience a process that will help you attend to that inner work that has been beckoning you for so long. Your life, relationships, and work will be transformed.

Reach out with any questions, and we hope you’ll join us in a group soon!

What's in It For You?

Six Sessions of Reflection and Conversation

Each session is 2-hours in length, and happens once per week (over a six week period). Most cohorts currently meet virtually (via Zoom), along with a few in-person cohorts in Houston, TX.

Time and Space to Process

Each session is designed as a rest stop—space to intentionally slow down, quiet your mind and heart, and refuel for the next leg of the journey. These rest stops give you time to focus on what your soul needs as you listen for the voice of God in your work.

Discernment Tools

Each session includes guided exercises, reflection questions, Bible exploration, and experiment prompts that will help you unpack all that’s going on in your world. Some of these take place in the group sessions, while others happen between sessions.

Fellow Travelers

Companions are crucial to any journey. Our Road Ahead groups are intentionally small (5-8 people). Some of our groups are designed for people who share common experiences. Find descriptions for our cohort types below.

  • + You’re feeling stuck
  • + You’re in vocational crisis
  • + You’re in transition
  • + You’re asking big “what’s next?” questions

The Road Ahead groups taught me how our pain can reveal our longings. I feel I was able to get unstuck by discerning what I long for and how my empathy related to my next steps.

Senior Vice President in Banking / 2020: Third Third Cohort

Siga Shagran

One common theme in our third third Road Ahead group was how to create more runway in our lives. Everyone in our cohort brought experiences of life and loss, and were willing to call a spade a spade. For me, I work in a corporate environment that will end one day. This program was relevant because it made sense how everything I've done in life can create more runway through empathy, imagination, and risk; to do other things as I get older.

Professional Coach, Trainer, and Artist / 2020 Cohort: Women on a Mission

Louise Abbiati

When I entered the Road Ahead program, I wanted to explore my new coaching practice. However, I discovered my longing and starting place was somewhere else. God was calling me to wholeness and authenticity which is connected to my creative practice. I wouldn’t have had this insight at this moment of my journey had I not gone through this program. This was a real eye-opener because I was able to connect back to my core, to the core of my calling.
