Local Retreat Center

Local area ministry leaders need a place to rest, be encouraged, and be restored. Typically, that need is met by slipping out of town once or twice a year to get a break from the day-to-day pressures of ministry. Unfortunately, most pastors are reluctant to do this, for a variety of reasons. Here’s a place in town that pastors and leaders could come to rest, relax, debrief with other leaders and collaborate on ministry ideas.

Sunday Break

We encourage every pastor to take a break from the pulpit once every 6 months to attend another church in town, support that pastor and get a look at what God is doing in other congregations in the city. CitiServe would provide a speaker for that Sunday or any Sunday that you just need a break.

Leadership Prayer Summit

Once a year local area pastors and leaders getaway to Cannon Beach, Oregon to pray together and build significant relationships with each other. The collaborative effort that you see evidenced in the city at the present time, was birthed out of these yearly prayer gatherings.

Sabbatical Planning

Sabbaticals are a crucial, yet seldom utilized way for pastors and leaders to rest and get restored. We have some leaders in town who can help you plan and facilitate a sabbatical personally designed for your personality and needs.
