Put the date in your calendar for next year and plan to join with other pastors (and spouses) as we come together for the annual retreat. This year’s event will be at Serra Retreat in Malibu from May 27-31. Leadership is still being finalized, but we expect a renewing week together. There will be lodging on Monday May 27 at a hotel just inland from Malibu, and we will begin our time together at Serra and in retreat with the noon meal on Tuesday, May 28. So make plans now to be with us for this gift of time and space from the district.
Retreat for all minsters serving as pastor or chaplain, and their spouses in PSWD.

2019 event details

The 2019 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. 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.

We are excited to welcome Daniel Topf as the resource leader for the PSWD Pastor (Spouse) Retreat, May 28-31, at Serra Retreat in Malibu. Daniel is currently working as a regional representative of the missions agency World Team and studying for his PhD in intercultural studies at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena. Prior to coming to California, he spent time in China, Singapore, and India as a student, manager, and teacher at a Bible school. In total he lived and worked in Asia for over ten years, and he is passionate about unreached people groups, theological education, and the global Pentecostal movement. Nonetheless, the biggest recent news is that on September 29, 2018 Daniel got married to his beautiful bride, Annali (currently interim pastor at Glendale COB). Daniel is a native Spanish speaker and will provide leadership in both Spanish and English.
