The Way of Wonder Curriculum
The Way of Wonder is the groundwork for a deep and meaningful experience for your pilgrimage or mission trip.
After leading pilgrimages and mission trips across the globe for a quarter century, we understand that the biggest difference between teams who experience wonder and those who don’t is the depth of team preparation.
We at Wonder Voyage want to give you a Free Resource to help prepare your group for their upcoming adventure.

Sometimes they will be done during the session, other times they might be a “takeaway” exercise to further solidify the day’s material, or to sow some seed thoughts for an upcoming session. The goal of the encounter is listed, so you can craft your own if you like. You know your group – their depth as well as their attention spans. Adaptation is limited only by your imagination.
Each session will give you 2 or 3 big ideas to cover. These will be shared with you in either story or media form. As the moderator, you can either use the material as is, or better yet, use it to spark a story or example of your own. Make sure you state the main theme of each idea clearly.
Small Group Questions
There will be two or three discussion questions for each session to be covered in small groups. We encourage you to set aside time for these questions.
