What is the Fall Theological Retreat?
Later on that day, the disciples had gathered together, but, fearful of the Jews, had locked all the doors in the house. Jesus entered, stood among them, and said, “Peace to you.” Then he showed them his hands and side. The disciples, seeing the Master with their own eyes, were awestruck. Jesus repeated his greeting: “Peace to you. Just as the Father sent me, I send you.” Then he took a deep breath and breathed into them. “Receive the Holy Spirit.” John 20:19-22 (The Message)
The mission of the Fall Theological Retreat is to offer Church leaders a dedicated and unique time and space designed to strengthen relationships, reinforce identity, inspire theology, and extend sabbath, all with peers and colleagues, near and not-so-near, of the Southeast Minnesota Synod.
The goals of The Fall Theological Retreat are to provide time and space for pastors, deacons, and other church leaders to:
1. See the Master. Learn through compelling, timely, relevant content.
2. Receive the Holy Spirit. Attend vibrant community worship services.
3. Gather together. Connect and enjoy fellowship with peers and colleagues.
4. Find some peace. Take time for the kind of rest that meets our unique needs.
