2020 Dates

January 13-15

Fun, fellowship and spiritual renewal!

Another record attendance at last year’s Ohio Ministers & PK Retreat has our team of leaders working hard to make our 2019 getaway one you won’t soon forget! I’m personally looking forward to our time together as ministers and spouses because I sense tremendous confirmation about the direction our main services will be heading.

There was such an overwhelming response to the dynamic ministry of Dr. Tammy Smith at this year’s Ohio Pastors’ Wives Retreat, I’ve invited her to be our morning session speaker for Ministers & PK Retreat. Tammy holds a Ph.D. in Psychology and is a Licensed Professional Counselor. In addition to serving alongside her husband, Mike, as pastors of Vista Community Church, a multi-site church in Columbus, she continues more than 20 years of specialized service to pastors, missionaries and spouses at her counseling ministry, Threshold.

This year, I’m doing something I’ve never done before – speaking at Ministers Retreat. In our evening sessions, I believe God has given me a word that will encourage many ministers and spouses about God’s fresh, unmistakable anointing for new seasons of ministry and life. Frankly, I can’t wait!

As always, our passionate Student Ministries Team is working hard to make the PK (Pastors’ Kids) portion of this year’s gathering extra meaningful for all our kids, ages 0-18. In addition to age-appropriate sessions for all children, those in grades 6-12 are encouraged to stay with their peers and leaders for the entire retreat, including housing and meals.

If you’ve been before, you already get it – Kalahari’s setting is unparalleled, especially in the middle of winter. If you’re new to Ohio or if you’ve never been able to come before, read on for all the exciting details, and we sure hope to see you this January!
