This year, our Pastors’ Retreat is located at the DoubleTree Palm Springs. We are excited about being together as a team of churches, enjoying each others’ company, the amenities at the hotel and surrounding area, as well as meaningful times of worship and learning. This year’s retreat is focused on Lead Pastors and their staffs. In an attempt to encourage participation of as many staff members as possible, we have secured funding to underwrite a large portion of the cost for every Lead Pastor and their 20+ hour pastoral staff members. Each staff person pays $100 and we are covering the rest. We are hoping this time will unite us all as Friends, and provide time for all of us to breathe, engage, and connect.
Spouses who are not on paid staff are more than welcome to join us. However, due to the underwriting costs the denomination is taking on, spouses will be charged the entire cost of the retreat, which is $341.
During our time together, we will hear from our superintendent, Matthew Cork, about life and service in God’s kingdom as Friends, as well as from Palmer Chinchen who will challenge us to live missionally. In addition to our times of worship and learning, we are also planning some unique fun activities, intentional times of connecting with each other, as well as opportunities to care for our souls in our free time. It is our desire that we will leave the retreat feeling connected, refreshed, and inspired to impact and lead those God has entrusted to us.
We hope to see you there!
