Sage Hill Training

The mission of Sage Hill is to help people see who they are made do be so they can do what they are made to do. Sage Hill Training (SHT) is a personal/professional development experience to equip Christian professionals, ministry leaders, and lay leaders to grow their abilities to lead, serve, and care for others with passion, intimacy and integrity.

The goal of SHT is to guide people toward becoming portable sanctuaries in their lives so that, wherever they are and with whomever they interact, they can be people of strength, courage, substance, compassion, and wisdom.

Personally and Professionally Transformational

Based on the Spiritual Root System, SHT is designed to deeply impact participants’ lives both personally and professionally in order to help you better navigate the complex issues of the heart, such as addiction, trauma, and loss. by incorporating
• informative and inspirational teaching
• expertly-facilitated small-groups to help you explore your own life and story in a supportive environment
• meaningful, growth-oriented personal-reflection assignments, readings, assessments to help you better understand and integrate your training experience.

How Training Works

SHT’s design follows a primary tenant:
“We are created as emotional and spiritual creatures—created to live fully in relationship—me with me, me with you, and me with God.”

There are three learning modules in SHT, each module is three-weekends long. While participants are encouraged to participate in all three modules, both Modules II and III, build on themes and ideas introduced in Module I. After successfully completing Module I, participants can apply for Module II and/or Module III.

Module I: Relationship with Self
(maximum 28 participants)

All Participants begin in Module I. This is the foundational module and has the largest number of participants. Module I address four core questions of a personal story:

  • How am I created?
  • What events shaped my life?
  • What has been my response to those events?
  • How have those events uniquely marked and prepared me to live fully, love deeply, and lead well.

Module II: Relationship with Others
(maximum 8 participants)

In Module II, participants learn better tools and practice the skills necessary for being more effective in relationship both personally and professionally. Module II address four key areas:

  • Heart
  • Story
  • Here and Now (presence)
  • Mystery and Experience

Module III: Relationship with God
(maximum 8 participants)

Most people of faith, have a concept of God that heavily relies on doctrine, theology, tradition, and culture. In SHT Module III, participants explore a relationship with God informed by experience, practice, creation, and presence.
