Pastors are facing new challenges in a post-pandemic world—challenges that require a higher level of emotional and spiritual resilience. Our retreats are designed to equip you with tools to help you thrive in ministry, not just survive.
Our retreat, “A Rhythm That Works”, will focus on four key areas: solitude, rest, guidance, and encouragement. Come energize your life, marriage, and ministry vision with us!
