Focus Retreats

One way we seek to fulfill our mission of training leaders is by providing opportunities for connection and instruction throughout the year. Focus Retreats are designed for leaders to enjoy times of fellowship, engage in meaningful discussions on ministry-related topics, pray for one another, and collaborate on new initiatives. The goal is for participants to leave feeling refreshed, encouraged, and inspired to continue in Great Commission work.

Focus Retreats are held in five regions across the country: Central, East, Southwest, South, and Northwest. These gatherings typically follow a three-day format, with accommodations and meals included, and are focused on a central theme.

Ministry is about people and the condition of their souls.

It’s hard work to care for others’ souls. But we don’t have to do it alone. We have brothers and sisters we can link arms with as we seek to shepherd the flock God has put before us. At our Focus Retreats this year, we’ll spend time in community learning how we can resource the soul through the Word of God, the Spirit of God, and people of God.
