Childhood Ministry Retreat

March 5-6, 2015
Caraway Conference Center

When the Wind Blows
All people have times when they feel like life is a storm. They live life “straining at the oars, because the wind is against them” (Mark 6:45-51 NET), making little progress, perhaps fearing for their survival. Join us to learn how you and your church can come alongside people during times of crisis and point them to Jesus, who can still the storm and bring calm to their lives.

Overnight guests: $100 double occupancy, $125 single occupancy (includes lodging, dinner, breakfast and program fee). Commuters: $65 (includes dinner, breakfast and program fee)
