Ministers & Mates Retreat
September 27 @ 6:00 pm - September 29 @ 12:00 pm
We look forward to seeing you and your spouse at Ministers & Mates Retreat September 27 – 29. 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.
