Rest. Refresh. Renew.

Two opportunities for renewal:

Annual Multi-Day Retreat

The Abiding in His Presence retreat is an experience through which church leaders:

  • learn about and safely share their personal experiences of growing in five biblical formation areas: spiritual, emotional, physical, relational, and missional.
  • practice spiritual disciplines to facilitate growth in these areas of formation.
  • foster patterns for lifelong spiritual health.

The retreat is organized around times of group learning and sharing as well as personal time to complete self-selected exercises that will enrich participants’ spiritual, physical, emotional, relational, and missional formation.
