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. In the 2021–22 ministry year, our theme was Movement, based on our Charis core value of biblical mission.
