How do I learn the skills?
The True Identity event combines neuroscience and theology with exercises designed to transform your life to a new normal of joy and peace. The training at True Identity takes place in triads so you join and rotate groups to practice exercises that train your brain in the skills that make relationships work. Each session alternates between high-energy joy and low-energy rest with exercises that match how God designed your nervous system to work.
Some exercises have an individual focus while others involve your group. Woven into this flow are engaging exercises that focus on interacting with God so you expand your ability to live with the peaceful awareness of God’s presence in your life. This interactive practice along with the diversity of skills each group offers leads to a well-rounded experience that equips, refreshes and inspires you toward what Scripture calls a “sound mind” with an “abundant life.”
What would my church gain from hosting a True Identity weekend?

Whether the community values spiritual formation, marriage enrichment, discipleship, or recovery, the skills from True Identity will empower people to better express their faith and develop earned maturity so God’s people remain resilient during fatigue, conflict, and trial.
The True Identity weekend emboldens church communities in their mission to make disciples and spread the good stuff with the world.
