What is a Spiritual Retreat?

It is a strategic withdrawal from the "world" in order to be alone with God.

Why take a spiritual Retreat?

Jesus is the model - He routinely took his disciples away or went away by himself. God often speaks in a still small voice - we need solitude to hear Him.

What can we expect?

Let God set the agenda - be expectant. Be ready for peaceful, quiet beautiful surroundings with plenty of uninterrupted time. God always shows up - He is true to his word.

Why is there a Shepherds Care Ministries? them

It was God's idea and He called Ernie Hautala to start a ministry to reach out to full time Christian workers.He is calling others as well. Our society needs Christian pastors who are to God - ministry often leads away. Weariness makes leaders lose their courage - rest restores courage. Pastors and their spouses are often separated from each other because of ministry pressure.

What is done on a spiritual retreat?

Follow one of the program guides  or design your own. Disconnect from the world by observing a media fast. Get proper rest. Listen more than speak. Listen through Gods word and prayer.

Listen through music or by just watching His creation. Listen through the books provided to help direct this type of retreat.

 

Why are they free?  

This concept is is fairly new to the protestant church in America. Many churches do not provide the time away or the money for a pastor couple to go on a retreat. Just as salvation is a free gift  and evidence of God's love, so these retreats are free so that pastor couples have more tangible evidence of His love for them.
