Can Wonder Voyage Buy You Lunch?

Can wonder voyage buy you lunch?

Can Wonder Voyage take you to lunch? We’re not kidding. We’d love to break bread with you and introduce you to a world filled with wonder.

I have just released my newest book, Into the Wonder. It is an invitation to walk with a guide who has dedicated his life to connecting people with wonder. My unique brand of storytelling invites you to be part of the adventures to dozens of countries on seven continents. These encounters broadened my mind about what it means to be human, a Christ seeker, and to live a life of connecting with wonder. In addition, you learn why I founded Wonder Voyage with a mission to compel others into a lifestyle of pilgrimage and service. Through these stories, we see that wonder isn’t just for the lucky few but for anyone willing to step out of their comfort zone.

An Invitation

Into the Wonder is more than a collection of stories that led to the founding of Wonder Voyage. It is a roadmap to connect people with wonder. As part of Wonder Voyage’s 25th anniversary, we are taking that roadmap to people through a book tour.

We are looking for a few locations across the U.S. to visit and bring the message of wonder to those with open hearts who seek a life of pilgrimage and those who long to live bigger and better stories. If you’re willing to host a group of friends or colleagues for a unique event, Wonder Voyage will provide a lunch for those interested in learning more about our organization. I would love to share a meal, an adventure, and a few stories with you. 

Topics To Consider

As our team plans the book tour, a few topics people have requested I speak on include:

  • Into the Wonder is a celebration of stories from the book. This is tailored to inspire, entertain, and inform your community. It can be a small, intimate gathering or a sizeable congregational service. This is a different take on the Sunday morning message.
  • Entering the Sacred Story allows us to spend a few hours or a couple of days understanding how storytelling is ingrained into the heart of humanity. Learn the tricks to telling good stories and building a living narrative for your church or organization.
  • Why Pilgrimage? First, this is a deep dive into the differences between mission trips and pilgrimages. In addition, I address the elements that turn a typical mission trip or pilgrimage into a transformative experience. Finally, I explain the value of exposing your group to the love of travel.

We can adjust these topics to meet your group’s needs or find a topic that works better for you. With 25 years of pilgrimage and mission trip experience, we can bring unparalleled expertise.
