The words of Jesus found in Mark 6:30-32 serve as the theme for this year’s District Pastors Conference:
“Come Away…Rest A While… Renew and Restore.”
We will gather for rest, renewal, and restoration as we spend time to be reacquainted, challenged to examine various aspects of ministry health (spiritual, relational, financial, etc.), and sent back invigorated for our tasks among the Lord’s people.
