Ministers Refresher

Pastoring can be stressful. No matter if you’re an assistant pastor of a church of 40 or a lead pastor of a church of 4,000, shepherding the people of God can take a toll on your mind and your body. Aren’t you always available to listen and to offer spiritual advice for those in need? Pastors need vacation and counseling too, and oftentimes the opportunity for pastors to recharge is not available or affordable. Whatever situation you find yourself in as a leader, finding time for intimacy with God and your marriage are necessities. Our adventure retreats are specially designed for pastors and their families to take some time away from home, because paying attention to your personal spiritual wellbeing is crucial for a healthy relationship with God.

  • Ideal for: Ministers and Their Families
  • Ages: 13 and Up
  • Dates: TBD
