Ministers and Spouses’ Retreat 2016

Quartz Mountain Resort and Lodge — April 22 – 23, 2016

“Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.”

–Mark 6:31

Quartz Mountain LodgeAfter a specially hectic season of ministry for Jesus’ disciples, He called them aside for a time of rest. At the Heartland 2014 Quadrennial Conference, our delegates voted to relaunch our Annual Care and Share Retreat for this same purpose. Our 2016 date and location is set, and we invite our ministers and their spouses to a relaxing time away from the constant call of the ministry. It’s time to make your reservation for this special weekend!

Historically, many of our pastors come from these hallowed halls of learning and preparation.

Spring 2016

ReFuelReFuel = a special blend of district fellowship, teaching, vision, prayer and encouragement for church pastors, leaders, and workers!

Why on earth would anyone push a car instead of drive it? Oh yes, people have to push cars when they run out of gas. That’s why one of the earliest lessons drivers learn is to watch the gas gauge and stop for gas before running out.

Many pastors, leaders and workers can testify about feeling like they are pushing their ministry instead of driving at times. Again, the difference is fuel — spiritual fuel. God did not design us to go far in ministry without spiritual refueling.

Don’t run your ministry on fumes!
