Pastor / Spouse Retreat

Pastor / Spouse Retreat
June 11 – 15, 2018
Registration in early 2018
Monday evening through Friday morning
Attendance is limited to 30 participants – Register early!
Retreat for all minsters serving as pastor or chaplain, and their spouses in PSWD.
For one year, 2018, the retreat will be open to all district ordained and licensed ministers at a non-subsidized price.

The 2018 Pastor/Spouse Retreat is being held at the Serra Retreat Center in Malibu, California (interactive map). It is located 45 minutes from the Los Angeles & Burbank airports. This retreat is meant for your spiritual and physical health. Clergy today face chronic pressures which harm them spiritually and physically. The Ministry Commission of PSWD takes it as our mission to care for the women and men who have answered God’s call to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our churches and faith institutions.
