ReVi Retreat Year 3 #2 Session
November 5 and 6
Golden Bell Camp and Conference Center

What a great time with Mark Bane at our last ReVi in September! His focus on the Characteristics of a Great Commission Church were spot on.

Now we are moving to Leading a Great Commission Church. Several from our Colorado District will be sharing about their own experiences in Leading that will help us in understanding the directions we may need to go.

Topics include: Leading Yourself and Equipping Others; Leading and Managing by Priorities; Leading Volunteers and Staff Ministry; and Creating a Culture of Generosity – Models and Stories.

Pastoral Spiritual Formation Retreat at Golden Bell Camp
What an incredible spiritual formation retreat we had at Golden Bell! God was revealing himself to us in unique ways as we gathered to listen to his still, small voice throughout our time together. We had over 20 at this our first retreat focused on transformative listening. Because of the success of this retreat, we are planning more for the future. Thanks to Keith Metcalf, who gave leadership to holding this retreat at Golden Bell. And thanks to Cherie Reiter in leading us in music worship. Ken Rose and Chris Reiter shared about their own journey of spiritual formation that encouraged each of us. Thanks to all those who attended!
