The focus of the retreat was to support and care for our North Texas Conference clergy who continue to work hard in a ministry setting. To that end, programming with an emphasis on clergy self-care was:

  • Morning devotion with Rev. Paul Rasmussen, senior pastor at Highland Park UMC
  • Keynote address by Rev. Dr. Terry Parsons
  • Afternoon of spiritual-nurturing recreational activities – fellowship, board games, biking on trails, hiking, waterfront activities on the lake. 
  • Opportunities to meet with spiritual directors and engage in group or individual spiritual formation activities.
  • Closing outdoor worship will be led by Bishop Michael McKee and Pastor Richie Butler, senior pastor at St. Luke “Community” UMC.
