This course helps Boomers discover and explore their strengths, values, passions, motivations and dreams in order to plan a new season of life filled with purpose and meaning.

  • This course is for you if you are ready to discover (or re-discover) your dreams and purpose in life.

    Are you entering a new phase of life when society is telling you to "retire"–sit back, relax, and enjoy some leisure? After all, you deserve it! Really? Maybe you are not certain you want to go quietly into the night and live without purpose and meaning. This course will help re-ignite your dreams and clarify your purpose in a new season of life.

  • This course is for you if you believe you still have something to offer to the world.

    You have abundant life experience, skills, and knowledge. You have passions and concerns. You are uniquely designed and gifted. Yes, you can continue to make an impact in your family, community and the world. This course will help you review your life story, clarify what's important to you, unveil the marvel of your God-given design--and discover your important role in the world.

  • This course is for you if you want to develop a next-stage-of-life plan.

    Many Boomers have developed well-honed financial plans for their retirement, but have failed to consider intentionally constructing a "life" plan. This course will not only help you understand who you are and where you've been but also where you are going. Who are you going to serve? What will be your legacy? What will be the purpose of the "rest of your life?"

  • This course is for you if you want to not just leave a legacy–you want to LIVE a legacy.

    The power of your legacy to the next generations depends on how you live out your calling. What are you meant to be and do in this season of life? Participating in the Re-Ignite process will educate, enlighten, and inspire you to focus on your calling--your legacy.

It's Not About Retirement

Theresa, Everett, Washington

Since engaging with the Re-Ignite process, I have been hyper-focused on the choices I'm making with my time, my money, and who I let into my life. This season of reflection is not guilt-ridden but charged with excitement for what's ahead. Thank you, Richard and Leona, for introducing the idea that I can and must seek God's will for my Third Calling–and for sure, it's not about "retirement."

Re-Ignite: Tangible Tools and Support

Lori K., Edmonds, Washington

Re-ignite – a perfect name for an experience that gave me insight and tools to more confidently seek God’s purpose. Richard and Leona have helped me to more clearly see God’s moving in my life through the decades which opened my eyes to future possibilities. Years of ministry give a depth to the tools they use as they present relevant information with applicable examples, humor and insightful sensitive probing. In my case,​ the result has not been an immediate answer to my next step, but something better – tangible tools and support to pursue God’s best for me in this stage of life and live the journey step by step with faith, trust and joy. Thanks, Richard and Leona, for stepping out to pursue your dream and lead people to fulfill their potential!
