refuel mentoring retreat

This retreat is for one senior leader from your church, to join us at Refuel Mentoring Retreat in the company of fellow leaders to recalibrate and renew!

The same Lord who called his disciples to come follow him (Mark 1:17), and to come to him however weary and burdened they were (Matthew 11:28-30), also said, "Come with me...to a quiet place and get some rest" (Mark 6:21). He recognised that they were stressed and overdone and needed renewal and refreshment. The disciples had 'engaged' in ministry, now Jesus call was to 'disengage' in a quiet place.

Do you need to heed that call at present? His call from time to time, and maybe to you right now, is to come aside and re-set and refresh.

This year is a little different. The Living Stones board is extending the invitation to spouses of senior leaders to join us, recognising that they carry a fair portion of the weight and pressure of the pastoral role. This is not a marriage retreat - rather a chance for pastors and spouses, individually, to experience the refreshment that only the Lord Jesus can provide.

Jack Warren, Executive Pastor of Chase Oaks Church in Dallas, will be sharing ways that the Lord has been dealing with him personally and renewing him. Jack is a transparent and vulnerable servant of Christ.

The retreat will be starting at 1.00pm Tuesday 23rd October thru to 12noon Thursday 25th October.  All travel arrangements must be made outside of these times. The cost to attend is $295 per person and includes all meals and share accommodation. Your flights are additional.

We invite you to register below, or for more information phone Shellene on 027 234 5469.

For a number of years now, Living Stones has offered a Refuel Mentoring Retreat as an opportunity for Senior Leaders to leave the joys and burdens of church leadership behind and come to a quiet place to find some soul rest.

There are limited spaces and is opened to your pastoral or executive teams, ministry leaders or elders. Our goal is that you will leave this retreat refreshed spiritually, emotionally and physically.
