What Teammates Say
It’s probably safe to say that most of us have asked the questions, “What am I called to do?” and “What is God’s plan for me?” Well, if you want to explore the possibilities, consider joining a Wayfinders team and plan to have fun! Two months into our journey together, the six of us have been turned loose by Darreby to continue to share our individual pursuits, celebrating accomplishments as well as difficulties. Growing together in Christ is a wonderful experience. Getting to know each other in an intentional and spiritual way is truly a gift. Tancy Mitchell
One thing I’ll be grateful for this Thanksgiving is seeing the light and the inspiration to be an active volunteer for Vermont Adaptive this winter, with special attention to veterans…. Thank you again for your significant leadership in helping me and other deacons perceive the realistic opportunity to open a door that seemed like it wouldn’t open, to use tools and to have a process where their colleagues and others have got their back. An amazing thing is that you didn’t suggest anything specific to anyone, you suggested some tools and asked people to respond to certain questions going around the room. Grace came.
What I had was a deep desire to help others — and a dysfunctional shop to do the work in. My first action was only to move a box from point A to point B in the basement … so what … no judgement. As the weeks drew on, I was seeing more and more floor and less and less junk in my way. I was able to start helping out again. I had space for a woodworking project and the tools at hand for my son and his girlfriend. I was able to tear down and repair a swivel bar stool without tripping over junk piles or not being able to find screws. I am now building shelves and have plans for a work table. This shop has been a back burner idea for 20 years, and without Wayfinders; I would never have started making it happen. Arne DeFosse
You do not have to have “lost your way” to benefit from an investment of time in joining a Wayfinders group. All of us know, at least to some degree, how to steer our life boat. Wayfinders encourages you to create a map and helps you read the compass. Leigh Sherrill
Darreby’s evident love of this calling, and her positive outlook that Wayfinders has something to offer everyone, gives hope to each that they are not alone – and that a “dream” can be reached. Marisa B.

I always think it is worth it to join a program if you can get just 1 nugget…and Wayfinders offers a gold mine. Leslie M.
As Christians, we are always looking to find ways to be closer to God. I have found that with my Wayfinders team. Through their support I have become closer to them and myself and therefore closer to God.
Goals are much harder to achieve on your own. Team support is awesome. If you are on the fence about joining a team, as they say at Nike, “Just Do It.” Bruce Burnham
Definition of “Wayfinders” – finding your way surrounded by caring and thoughtful travelers. We are all on a journey, why not share and encourage each other along the way with whatever means we can. It’s fun and a great way to add a new dimension to relationships. Jackie Pinard
