ELIM RETREATS 2014 - US
ELIM Retreats, a ministry of Barnabas International, will offer 8 renewal retreats for global workers in the States in 2014. If you are planning a home assignment in the States in 2014, be sure to put this in your schedule first.
WHO IS SERVED? Most of the Retreats are for missionary singles or couples. However, in 2014, we will offer one Retreat for whole families that are returning to the States for home assignment.
WHERE ARE THEY HELD? In Michigan and Wisconsin. Both settings are private and exceptionally beautiful natural settings.
PURPOSE? We offer low-key but intentional times of spiritual renewal, recovery and revival for global workers. Emphasis is on spiritual formation and preventative pastoral care, rather than on formal debriefing or crisis/depth counseling.
HOW "BUSY" IS THIS RETREAT? We provide a balance between focused opportunities to worship and interact with the Word in small groups, with plenty of open time to rest, sleep, worship, wander and play.
COST: $80.00 per person for 5 nights, 6 days. Scholarships available.

ELIM Renewal Retreats for Missionaries & Pastors - USA
Barnabas International and ELIM Retreat Ministries have posted dates for their 2013 Retreats on line at www.elimretreats.org
ELIM Retreats are renewal retreats for missionary and pastoral singles and couples. They are 6 days in length. The retreats are low key but intentional times of spiritual renewal, recovery and revival for international global workers and for full time local church pastors. The focus is deepening in a love relationship with Jesus Christ. Quiet study times are oriented towards Scriptural themes that emphasise spiritual formation and personal debriefing of where we really are in terms of spiritual growth. The Retreats are not meant to provide deep psychological counselling, but preventive pastoral care, and physical, emotional and spiritual renewal. The Retreats should not be construed as a "vacation", but a quiet and intentional time of hearing again the "still small voice."
