Ministers’ & Mates’ Retreat

September 29, 2017 - October 1, 2017

$85.00 – $170.00

We look forward to seeing you and your spouse at Ministers & Mates Retreat September 29 – October 1. 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.

Room Costs: You do need to make your reservations now to get the best rooms available. The number to call is 541-265-2600. Please mention ORPAC Ministers & Mates when you call.
