Why Do New England Pastors need a retreat?
The Numbers are Staggering.
New England is a spiritually desolate land. Pastors and their spouses trying to reach their communities here experience discouragement at a higher level than other pastors in America.
When the Pastor’s Encouragement Retreat began, more than 50% of pastors were leaving New England each year discouraged. Among the pastors who attend this free retreat, the turnover rate has dropped to less than 7%, the national average.
The Pastor's Encouragement Retreat renews and refreshes these leaders. From Maine to Connecticut, from Vermont to Rhode Island, pastors report that their most effective years came after an experience at the retreat.
