2/3: Pastors' Oasis Renewal for Pastors

When pastors embrace the significant link between being and doing, it influences their leadership in the church; the body of Christ is built up, and a skeptical world has a much better opportunity to be impacted for good and for God.
— Dr. Rod Wilson

A unique one-year experience designed exclusively to nourish pastors at the deepest levels of their souls.

Do you find Pastors’ conferences are good for absorbing information about the “how-to’s” of pastoral ministry, but not as helpful for feeding your soul for the long-haul of ministry?  Do you sense that so much of today’s resources for pastors focus mostly on what you do, yet ignore the reality that our ability to minister flows less out of what we do, but rather out of the foundation of who we are in Christ?

Pastors’ Oasis will:

  • create a sacred space for personal renewal and examination
  • help cultivate a deeper understanding of both God and self
  • invite you to journey with a small group of pastoral colleagues
  • help you flourish in holiness and health
  • foster a better understanding of the link between who you “are” and what you “do”
  • refine spiritual rhythms and practices that support ongoing growth and renewal

 PROGRAM DETAILS

Pastors’ Oasis takes place during three (3-day, 2-night) weekday retreats at the beautiful Archbishop Brunett Retreat Center at The Palisades in Federal Way, Washington. You will enjoy your own private room and bath, take in sweeping views of the Puget Sound, have ample time to walk quietly along beautiful trails, and eat delicious food.
