This retreat is designed to be a safe and guided space for discernment and vocation. Wherever you are in your ministry discernment (i.e. candidacy, exploring a new call within your context, exploring a change in call, retirement, struggling with burnout, considering a sabbatical), this retreat is a time set aside to ask honest, open questions and explore where God might be leading you next. There will be cohort break-out groups for mutual conversation.
