All of us need time away from normal rhythms and ruts of ministry to find fresh connections with ourselves and our God—a time to be free from the demands and pressing needs that can erode our focus on Calling, the Caller, and the unique purpose to which each of us has been called. It is a gift when we find rare places where we can explore the desires of our heart and how these desires resonate with the heart of God.
In the “stewardship of our calling”, we often benefit from a combination of beauty, challenge, fellowship, solitude, wilderness, insight, prayer and laughter to help us hear the whisper of God’s Spirit. The partnership between Pastors on Point, the CRCNA, and friends from other denominations provides one of these rare places.
Join us June 20-28, 2016 in the Colorado Rockies for a unique retreat experience that is focused on your life and ministry. Through activities that include wilderness backpacking, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, and through tailored ministry coaching, facilitated cohort discussions and abundant time for solitude, this experience promises new connections between the desires of your heart and the stewardship of your calling.
Space is limited to ten total participants on a first come, first served basis. The trip can accommodate both men and women. Please visit the Summer Colorado Retreats page found at www.pastorsonpoint.org for more information and to register. You may be eligible for some continuing education funds. Find information on Continuing Education Grants via the CRC Pastor Church Resources site For Pastors page (this includes the Guidelines for Continuing Education Grants).
