South Carolina Presbyteries Retreat

October 24–26, 2022Special Events

Leadership Development Is Great And All That, And What I Really Need Is Some Time Rest, Refresh, & Renew!

How are you feeling these days? Really feeling?  Energized, excited and engaged in ministry?  Or are you dragging your feet into the pulpit?  Contemplating the communion table might be a nice nap location? Or are you mentally designing an escape hatch in your office for that next visit with the pastor? Where is your spark for ministry?  Is it possible to lead from a place of wholeness?  Is there room for creativity, imagination, and play?  How can you experience the fullness of life and living and leading? as Children of God?

See more details below, including leadership, registration, accommodations, and daily schedule.
