Pastor & Leader Retreat 2019


October 8-10, 2019 ~ Camp Maranatha, Big Lake

The 2019 Pastor & Leader Retreat will be held once again at Camp Maranatha in Big Lake, Alaska.  This is an open invitation for all Alaska Conference ministry partners (meaning credentialed pastors, lay leaders, CYAK, ACC, KICY  and all ministry personnel) to gather for encouragement, sharing, spiritual refreshment and fun. Check in starts on Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. (followed by dinner at 6:00 p.m.) and ends with lunch on Thursday, October 10. Spouses and children are invited to attend and child care will be made available for worship sessions. This year, the planning committee has designed this retreat with added flexibility and options for rest, physical activity, spiritual renewal and fun as you are needing. Spiritual Direction and prayer ministry will be available on an appointment basis.

Featured Speaker: Dan Jarrell, Teaching Pastor, ChangePoint

Theme: The Shape of Pastoral Integrity

Worship Leader: Tom Mute

Spiritual Direction: Carina Menaker

Prayer Ministry: Heather Smith

Cost: $175 (full retreat) or $105 (partial retreat)*

Registration is a per person fee and will provide the individual registrant with lodging, meals, snacks, and most programming options. This year we are offering a partial retreat option for $105. Of course, being present for the entire retreat is optimal for connection and refreshment. However, we understand some may only be available for a shorter time. Please come, we value your presence!

Housing: Langley Lodge (2 per room) or Cabin (families or groups)

Some housing options will be reserved for the elders among us. Some housing options require bringing bedding (or a sleeping bag) of your own. We will notify you directly if you need to bring bedding.  If you are only able to attend a portion of the retreat, including your specific plans in the “Notes” field on the registration will greatly help us. Our registration estimates are due to Camp Maranatha by September 24.

Registration is now OPEN using form below.

Please note that the registration form and payment are separate forms. After you enter registration information and click SUBMIT, payment can be made by clicking the PAY button.
