“At the intersection of Who are you, What you’re good at, What’s important to you, and What you really want is the heart of what you are made for.”


Just as a compass guides us through uncharted territory and helps us plot a course to find our way, Life Compass will help you navigate a path into your unique life-giving contribution in our world. This experiential, coach-guided workshop will provide you the opportunity to pause, to reflect on where you’ve been and who you are, and help you step more confidently into your unique future.


The Life Compass discovery process will kick start with a full day workshop at Omaha Whole Living. In these sessions we will explore the Divinely established roots for the good that you are made to do in the world.


In the following Thursday night sessions, we will continue to explore your unique design and articulate a framework to help you navigate life, relationships, and work.

Before you arrive for the first session, you will be Prepared to Engage the process and fully enter into the discovery waiting for you through two pre-retreat email reflection exercises.

  • In the first email you will be invited to begin reflecting on your story.

  • In the second you will be invited to explore your personality through the Enneagram personality construct, and to solicit feedback about your gifts and talents from people whom you trust and know you best.

During each Life Compass session you will be Guided toward Discovery through a time tested and research based tool that has offered guidance to thousands of Christ followers over the last 20+ years.

  • During the True North introduction you will realign with God’s heart for his Kingdom.

  • You will begin to see the big picture of your life and the ways that God has been at work in you during the Life Map workshop.

  • You will explore and map your four compass points: Personality, Talents, Values and Desires.

  • You will be invited to deepen your trust in God as you listen for his words of affirmation of your unique identity.

  • You will “set your compass” for your unique direction by articulating five guiding statements that express what your life is about.

  • You will find hope and healing as you look for Christ’s presence in the pain of your past using imagining prayer and the Examen.

  • You will begin to map out next steps as you think about Crafting a Rule of Life or chart Waypoints for your journey ahead.

  • Included in the workshop is the Life Compass workbook and the companioning guidance of Pastor, Missionary and Thresholds Coach, Eric Purcell.

After Life Compass is over you won’t be left to figure things out on your own. You will be Uniquely Supported to make the changes you need in order to more fully align with God’s design and call for your life.

  • You will receive 4 weekly prayerful reflections sent to your email that will help you continue to process and integrate all that you discovered during the retreat.

  • Explore further coaching opportunities with Eric.

Thresholds is a community of missional leaders that was formed in 2013 by Rob Yackley to encourage and equip all-in followers of Jesus to pursue radically incarnational ways of being his Church. Before creating Thresholds, Rob was the co-founder and lead architect of NieuCommunities, a collective of mentoring communities sprinkled around the world that shaped people to inhabit the places they live and to lead in the way of Jesus. Their story is told in the book Thin Places.


The Thresholds team has started multiple communities in diverse settings and cultures around the world. We’ve led them. We’ve lived within them and we’ve been personally transformed through them. We are embedded in local neighborhoods and simultaneously collaborating with missional leaders and communities around the world to help advance the movement. Each of us has stepped across a threshold into a new way of living our faith and we’ve given our lives to help more and more people step into divine movement and thrive as they create life-giving communities in the neighborhoods and cities they call home.
