UPDATED SEPT. 9: After careful consideration by the Center for Leadership Development and members of the planning team, the Clergy Retreat will continue with a one-day outdoor event at Prothro Center at Lake Texoma (with an optional one- or two-night stay at Tanglewood).

  • 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. Note: please bring your own bike.
  • 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.

If you would like translation services – Spanish or Korean – please indict that on your registration form.
