Ministers & Mates Retreat
September 28 - September 30$85.00 – $170.00
We look forward to seeing you and your spouse at Ministers & Mates Retreat September 28 – 30. We are once again holding the retreat over a weekend: from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. We realize many of you are bi-vocational and/or have working spouses, which makes it difficult for you to attend a mid-week retreat. It is our desire that all of our pastors and spouses are able to be a part of retreat as this is a very valuable time for fellowship, inspiration, and rest.

Speaker - Dr. J.K. Warrick
Following nearly 38 years of pastoral ministry, J. K. Warrick was elected to the Board of General Superintendents by the 26th General Assembly held in Indianapolis, Indiana, in 2005. He pastored churches in Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, Ohio, Indiana, and Kansas. Prior to his election, he served for nearly 12 years as pastor of College Church of the Nazarene in Olathe, Kansas.
A pastor at heart, he considers his role as general superintendent an opportunity to join his colleagues in shepherding the global church. He has a heart for church planting, evangelism, world missions, discipleship, and compassionate ministries. Central to his ministry is the encouragement of the people of God to find a place of service and ministry in the church and community. He is passionate about equipping pastors and laypersons to be missional leaders.
After attending Southern Nazarene University (formerly Bethany Nazarene College), he graduated from Trinity College. He is an alumnus of Wesley Biblical Seminary. In 1994, his alma mater, Southern Nazarene University, honored him with a Doctorate of Divinity in recognition of his service to Christ and the Church of the Nazarene. He has served on the Boards of Trustees at Mount Vernon Nazarene University and MidAmerica Nazarene University and has also served on district boards and committees in the church.
Dr. Warrick has been married to Patty (Delores J. Ouzts) since 1967. They have two married adult children, Brad and Jill, and seven grandchildren.
