Retreat for East Coast Conference Ministerium

November 10-13, 2019

Registration closes at 8 AM on Friday, November 8, 2019
 

East Coast Covenant Clergy and Spouses are invited to reconnect, rest, and renew at the 2019 Ministers' Retreat.  Step back from ministry and allow yourself to be ministered to by God's presence, by your brothers and sisters in the Lord, by time alone, by our speakers, and by the beauty of God's creation surrounding us at Pilgrim Pines.  We look forward to seeing you soon and welcoming you to our retreat.  God's blessings and peace be with you.  - The 2019 Ashram Committee
