30th January to 1st February. £150. Hothorpe Hall, Leicester, UK
The Pastoral Refreshment Conference is an oasis for Christian leaders. Our aim is to provide spiritual refreshment for leaders and spouses, nurture for their walk with the Lord and sustenance for their hearts in the demanding work of ministry. The conference is an opportunity for leaders, pastors and partners to seek the Lord together for the on-going refreshing of life and ministry. It is not primarily a theology or ministry skills conference, but rather a chance to rejoice, weep and worship with peers, to be prayed for and to receive spiritual sustenance from God and encouragement from others.
From 30th January to 1st February you will find a warm welcome and sense of family with other leaders and their spouses. We will have 3 days of encouragement in developing godly character for leadership. There will be inspiring Biblical preaching from Dave Burke on Psalm 103, exploring the theme “Experiencing the Love of God in Leadership”. There will be lots of worship, opportunities for mutual prayer and a safe environment in which to be yourself.
The Pastoral Refreshment Conference will have a strong ethos of knowing and enjoying the grace of God together. We believe that this is foundational to continuing to love the Lord, love the church and love leading when the demands of ministry are arduous.
When couples minister together it is often the case that the partner recognised as being in ministry receives encouragement and help but their spouse finds fewer such opportunities. The Pastoral Refreshment Conference is a place to come and receive from God together. It can often be the case that churches are unable to see the draining and lonely demands placed on single leaders. The conference is intended to provide friendship, support and love for those who minister on their own.
