2019 Michigan Clergy Retreat 4/22-24

At this spring's retreat for Michigan Disciples pastors, Sarah Renfro, will help clergy look at what is ahead for each one of us: retirement strategies, financial planning, and best practices. She will be providing several presentations, and then there will be time for one-on-one meetings with her.

Sarah is Area Director for the Pension Fund of the Christian Churches. She is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and comes to Pension Fund from the staff of Geist Christian Church in Indianapolis, after serving congregations in Kentucky.

In addition to quiet time and reading time, participants will have sessions on what is working and not working in our churches. Please bring copies of your bulletin, newsletter, baptism, wedding and funeral policies; and anything else that you think would be helpful to share. our other group sessions and worship times will focus on spiritual growth. Plan on constructive conversation and lots of relaxation.

The retreat begins at 6:30 p.m., Monday, April 22, at St. Francis Retreat Center in DeWitt, and continues through lunch on Wednesday, April 24. You may choose to stay overnight at the Center ($190) or commute on a daily basis ($100). Meals are included for all participants.


Anyone who has gone on the Christian Church (DOC) Clergy Retreat can tell you this is one of the best things clergy can do for themselves and their church. Enjoy two days and nights at the beautiful St. Francis Retreat Center, take time for rest, study, and reflection, and spend time connecting with your clergy colleagues as we enjoy “Freedom in Covenant”.
