How to Ensure Your Kids Have a Great Summer

You rush to school early to pick up your kids at early dismissal for the last time this year, until the new school year starts in the fall. As you hold the door open for your over-excited children, you realize that you are not prepared for the summer break to come. Summer vacation has crept up on you, and your already busy schedule will now be even busier. 

Why Pastors and Church Leaders Need Retreats

You may have been involved in various forms of church ministry for many years. Maybe you have been on full-time staff, or you have been like the apostle Paul, who worked as a tentmaker to help pay the bills while fulfilling your ministry roles.

And during those many years of ministry, you may have asked, “What’s the point? Why work all these extra hours? Why carry what seems to be the full load of humanity's problems on your shoulders?” 

You may have thought about quitting or taking a break.

Your Non-Profit Needs a Retreat

Nonprofits can be organizations from a one-person counseling service to a church food pantry to a multimillion-dollar disaster relief organization. Each nonprofit has its own particular mission statement and sphere of influence that typically attempts to make the world around them a better place to live. But no matter what their ultimate goals or belief systems are, they all seem to have similar characteristics.

The well-being of the members of your team or ministry can benefit greatly from a retreat. A retreat is defined as "withdrawing to a quiet or secluded place." Another definition is "a period of seclusion for the purpose of prayer and meditation." Yet another defines it as "a quiet or secluded place in which one can rest and relax."
