Webinar Series: Using Your Platform for Good in Crisis (Part One)

During a health pandemic in Rome — when it was unprecedented to care for people outside of your own family — the early Christians combined their creativity with compassion. The Church grew exponentially as people saw real love in action and it was compelling. They brought hope and kindness in the face of fear and despair. Today, Halftimers all over the world are responding with the same blend of creativity and compassion. Perhaps our greatest impact in our second half will be during these days of crisis. We believe that

There’s a big difference between heaving a healthy mid-life transition and finishing well. A few years back, we were prepping for a conference around the

Instead of chasing the next opportunity, Billy stepped off the entrepreneurial treadmill in order to pause and think about his purpose for the next chapter. Billy Prim shared his halftime journey with us live this week during our Halftime Alumni Spotlight. After reading Halftime and praying through what God wanted him to do at that point in life, two things became clear. God had given Billy the skill set to

Three Elements for Deeper, More Meaningful Family Holiday Gatherings

Holidays come and go every year with great predictability, but sometimes it's hard to know how to plan for these times to be as rich, joy-filled and meaningful as possible. Every family is unique.

Before You Make a Halftime Transition: 5 Practical Steps to Detox

You know you need a change. But how? And where to start? You’re so used to running on adrenaline. Under the surface, you feel like you just want to escape. You want peace. You want rest. And you want to devote yourself to something that truly matters. You’re not alone. I felt that way when I went through a Halftime season, and we see it in many leaders who come through the Halftime Institute. We call it “smoldering discontent”. But how do you go from smoldering to joyful
