Winter Leadership Retreat

Who:

Pastors, seminarians, ministry staff, congregational leaders and spouses.The retreat is an opportunity for ministry leaders and spouses to get away and be enriched through a time of fellowship, worship, prayer, education, and recreation.

What:

 
For 2018, we are planning a Retreat with two parallel tracks.  Participants may choose the Leadership Track and learn from Pastors Art Hill and Mark Dahn of Trinity (LCMS) in Tyler, TX as they share their experience of implementing a new discipleship ministry in Tyler.  Or participants may also wish to choose the Devotional Track and share in a bible study by songwriter Laura Story and be led by Laurie Grube from Martin Luther | Church on Main in Giddings and Kathy Bielfeldt from St. John, Thrall.  Everyone on both tracks will share together in common worship and fellowship times.  For more information, visit the event page: RebootConcan2018.eventbrite.com.

When:

The 2018 Winter Retreat will begin Sunday evening, January 28 and conclude at Noon on Tuesday, January 30.  
Come when you can; leave when you must!

Where:

Our Winter Retreat is held in Concan, Texas, a beautiful resort community located along the Frio River.  The Dream Catcher and Rain Dancer cabins serve as our retreat home. Each is designed to host large family gatherings in various sleeping accommodations.  We do our best to accommodate married couples in private rooms with queen bedrooms, but we may not be able to do so depending on the total number of registrants.

How:

Early Bird Price =  $50 + snacks & drinks to share
Late Registration =  $60 + snacks & drinks to share

Local Clergy Conferences

Texas is big. 

 
We live in the internet-age, where distance is no longer an obstacle to communication. Even so, our pastors frequently get together the old fashioned way: in person. With a bible in one hand and a mug of coffee in the other, they engage in deep theology and casual chit-chat, and everyone goes home better for the exchange.
