Let us encourage you. Join us for this Retreat which starts Monday, 4:00 pm and concludes with a Lunch on Wednesday.
This Retreat is an opportunity to minister to the Wives of Senior Pastors, addressing their needs not duties! Many of you are experiencing not only the joys of life, but also your own real-world challenges and concerns. Prayerfully, this retreat will encourage you spiritually, mentally and physically. The Retreat will include a diversity of speakers and leaders with various experiences who will be transparent in their sharing.
Why is this Retreat only for THE lead pastor's wife, and not the heads of other ministries?
Due to their leadership role, and that of their spouse, these ladies often do not have someone within the Church body with whom they can confide in, share personal concerns, explore internal conflicts without judgment, or just be heard. They too are experiencing many of the serious concerns that face those in the church body, and often cannot find a time away for solitude and encouragement designed just for them.
Ministry Team: Carol Anderson-Shores, Vicki Heath, Julie Norman, Tina Pelzer, Mary Southerland
Your Ministry Team hopes to provide you with a peaceful and confidential environment where you can rest, laugh, discuss “real” issues, share experiences, and have others pray with you.
To that end, this retreat is not “program” heavy, but rather allows you time to connect with God. The sessions and breakout times are intentionally not long, yet interactive for honest and open discussions.
The theme for your time here is Matthew 11:28-30, encouraging you to lay your cares before the Lord because He cares for You!
Jesus encouraged: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30, NIV)
