ABOUT PROJECT SEARCHLIGHT

 

On the World Race, you learned about living a life of adventure, a life of chasing after God. It was wild, exhilarating, and the best part? It doesn’t stop after you leave the field. But how do you take what you learned on the World Race and put it into practice at home?  This is where Project Searchlight can help.

 

 

Project Searchlight is a 5 day event designed to help you navigate the next season of life. It’s a chance to see old friends, worship, hear some amazing speakers, and maybe even find your next step. Whether God is leading you back to your old job, a college degree, or maybe even the foreign mission field, Project Searchlight is the place to begin.

 


WHY SHOULD I GO TO PROJECT SEARCHLIGHT?

 

Because the World Race is just “training camp” for the rest of your life. Project Searchlight is about celebrating the Race, but it’s also about helping you sort out the next season and giving you some really practical tools to help you succeed.

 

There will be space to debrief your Race, process your month 12 experiences, and celebrate what God has done in you over the last 11 months. But it’s more than just a time to reflect. We want to help equip you and set you up for success wherever you may land next. We’ll have a number of alumni speakers and breakout sessions all focused on helping you navigate the season after the Race.

 

We’ll cover topics like:

 

How to Put the World Race on a Resume
Finding your Calling
Emotional Health After the Race
What is Discipleship?
Prophetic Training
Financial Stewardship

I Need Help

I can admit it now; I need help! I cannot do this alone. I came to project searchlight (PSL) because I wanted to see my squad mates, to be encouraged, to hear from God, to find direction because I was drowning in hopelessness and desperation at home. Read the blog

Post-Race: Finding Your Identity in God’s Love

So, if you’re hesitant to come to Project Searchlight like I had been, let me give you some encouragement. If you’re desperate for community, you will find people who are for you, not against you. If you’re feeling alone and misunderstood, you will be surrounded by people who are just as discouraged and lost as you, but are so hungry for God that you’ll inevitably be brought out of your pit and be refreshed by the Spirit.

So what has PSL done for me?? PSL has given me a space to encounter deeper parts of the Lords heart for me….for ME. Not for others but just for me. After traveling the world and at many points of the year caring about others it was time for me to be taken care of.
