2017 Pastors Retreat

Reconnect and Rekindle

September 18-21, 2017

Overview

Sometimes we are so busy serving we forget to stop and see what the Lord is doing around us and through us. Pastor’s Retreat is a great opportunity to bring your spouse, church staff, or just come by yourself and enjoy a week of relaxing in God’s creation while gaining new insights from the teaching of His Word.

So come reconnect with your friends and rekindle your relationship with God in a place free of distractions and surrounded by His creation.

Some older mapping services will suggest you take the 245. It is a curvy, winding road that will take you at least an additional hour. DO NOT take 245!

You need to be checked out of your lodging by 11:00 AM the last day of the retreat.

How many meals are provided?

We provide:

Dinner the first day of the retreat

All meals each full day of the retreat

Is there Internet?

We do not offer free guest WiFi at this point in time. We do offer Internet for a fee; however, the speeds here are not fast. Purchase at your own risk.

When can I sign up for next year's retreat?
