Soul Focus

Soul Focus

Join other pastors and ministry leaders as you cultivate a
deeper walk with God, develop and practice the principles
of soul care, and build authentic community.

Each of the 4 scheduled half day retreats will include
breakfast*, teaching, prayer, silence and solitude for
listening, personal reflection, and small group interaction.
Between scheduled retreats group members are asked to
set aside time with each other to grow friendships, share
their journey with God and support one another
in the challenges they face. Thrive Ministries will provide
material for reflection for these ‘in between’ gatherings.

Thursday mornings 9am – noon. Dates:  March 5/ June 4/ Sept 10/ Nov 12
