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."
