Come Find Rest and Renewal
Summer Retreats for Pastors and
The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, in collaboration with CBF state and regional organizations across the Fellowship, are inviting pastors and staff ministers to gather for a time of rest and renewal with a community of their peers this summer.
These spiritual retreats are scheduled from mid-June to early September and are designed to offer opportunities for worship, spiritual practices, holy conversation with colleagues and time for quiet and rest. They will not include intense educational programming, content about things happening in CBF life, or prognostications about post-pandemic church.
The Georgia retreat will take place at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia, August 16-19. The retreat is open to all staff ministers, and spouses are welcome. Space is limited, so register soon!
The retreats are $25 to attend, and the only other costs will be the cost of travel to the retreat center and for excursions with colleagues.
CONVERSATIONS ABOUT PREACHING
On Monday between January-May, CBF/GA hosted conversations between pastors and preachers about revised Common Lectionary texts, the craft of preaching, and the art of worship.
