Los Angeles September 2016
September 29th – October 1st, 2016
The retreat will primarily take place in Pasadena. Pasadena is a center for art, food, culture and shopping in Los Angeles and is just a quick 15 min train ride to downtown Los Angeles or 35 min to Hollywood. The main retreat location will be Pasadena Christian Center and lodging will be at Comfort Inn just a block and a half from the church. The hotel was recently renovated and is quite comfortable and clean.
Under 40 Retreats are open to certified, licensed, and ordained Assemblies of God ministers under 40 and their spouses, as well as ministers under 40 and their spouses pastoring at Assemblies of God churches or ministries.
Each retreat will focus on Making Friends, Sharing Resources, Networking with Leaders, and Connecting Generations. The goal is to break the isolation that so many young ministers feel, and create a sense of spiritual community among the younger members of our fellowship.
We invite several seasoned members of our fellowship to come and invest in the lives of the younger ministers. We include district and national leaders as well as influential and insightful ministers among our ranks. We do not announced the list of names for each retreat, because this is not about them, it is about their investment in us. Each coach will be coming in at their own expense and without an honorarium. These are people who believe in the under40’s! They have not been asked to lecture, but rather, build relationships and mentor.
$149 per person or $259 for a pair includes two nights lodging and all retreat costs. Also, several meals will be included at no additional cost and others will be option and on your own at local restaurants. For each retreat, registration is only available online and is limited to the first forty people to register. Cost is double occupancy, so couples share a room or singles will share a room with someone else (separate beds). If you want to pick your roommate, simply list the information in your registration.
Child care is available for children ages 2 and under.
