Northwest Coast Presbytery Pastor’s Retreat

Tuesday September 11-Thursday September 13

Tall Timber Ranch

Amy Delaney as Facilitator

You are invited to join us for a time of renewal in the midst of God’s gloriously beautiful creation.   There will be time for hiking, reading, and resting.  Worship together, times of prayer, and conversations with colleagues are always the “secret sauce” of a retreat – blessing and renewing our spirits for another season of ministry.  Come and be served, rest, and renew with us.

The focus of the three teaching sessions this year is:  

Discerning well: continuing to listen for God’s voice in our lives.

We will learning from the masters of Christian discernment and also from the assembled retreat community what forms discernment takes in our lives and the lives of those we serve.  We will consider what decisions are best brought to discernment, practice a process for individual discernment; and then notice the special considerations for guiding discernment in small and larger groups. 

We hope you will discern to join us in September!
