A Mini-Retreat to Help You Live Out the Gospel in Your Everyday Life
“If I know the gospel is true… then why do I keep getting so stuck in this one area of my life?
Our culture finds goal-setting irresistible. We love finding new ways to measure and track progress, even in our spiritual lives.
But so often, our day-to-day experience doesn’t match up between who we really are and who we want to be or know we should be.
Our personable ministry with others doesn’t line up with our stressed-out interior world.
Our counsel is sought on all sorts of biblical issues, yet we secretly struggle with a lack of love for our teammate.
Or, we just don’t feel like we are adopted children of God because life is just hard – and we are exhausted.
While we long to believe the gospel in ways that transform us deeply, our best efforts always seem to lead to a preoccupation with self, frustration, and joylessness.
If this sounds like you, come and rediscover God’s grace at Gospel-Centered Life Weekend – a Serge mini-retreat.
Join us from Friday evening till Saturday noon for teaching and discussion as we explore how God desires to use the ups and downs of our daily life to draw us into a closer relationship with Him, make us more like Jesus, and extend His love to a broken and needy world.
While this event is based on themes from Serge’s The Gospel-Centered Life study guide, this teaching will go much deeper and beyond the book.
Whether your church has already gone through the curriculum in the past, or you’re interested in introducing your church to the curriculum for the first time – this event is for you!

Marc Davis grew up at New Life Church in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania in the years when Serge (formerly World Harvest Mission) was being launched.
During those years he saw people being transformed by the gospel of grace, and that same grace got hold of him, too. Marc and his wife Susan met while at the University of Virginia and were married in 1992.
After three years on Intervarsity staff, he completed an M.Div. from Westminster Seminary in 1997. Marc is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and served on the pastoral staff at New Life Church (now Glenside) for twelve years. Marc then joined Serge’s Renewal team in 2019 as Global Learning Program Leader. In that role he is excited to see missionaries, pastors, and others involved in ministry empowered by the gospel to live lives of great freedom in dependence on Jesus for everything. Marc and Susan have three children: Nathaniel, Maggie, and Owen.
