2023 Ministerial Association Retreat

The NWC Ministerial Association Retreat for pastors, church ministry staff and spouses, will be held Oct. 2-4, 2023, at Sugar Lake Lodge near Grand Rapids, MN.

Summer is coming to a close, and the accelerated pace of fall kicks in. New faces in our congregations and on our staffs. Old rhythms and established ministries hum along. New ideas and plans unfurl as we enter into a fresh ministry year. After the driving drumbeat of September, we can feel a little tired and a little breathless. This is a chance to change your pace. Check in on your soul. Reconnect with colleagues. Enjoy the beauty of the northern Minnesota woods and the luxury of Sugar Lake Lodge. Pray and listen to what the Holy Spirit might be saying to you.

Speaker: ECC President Tammy Swanson-Draheim
