Pastor/Leader/Spouse Retreat

October 4-5, 2019 at Cross Winds Conference Center in Hesston, KS

Friday evening of our retreat will focus on spending time with God and networking with others.  On Saturday we will participate in an interactive workshop introducing and using KLC Leadership principles that bring together our Anabaptist value for discernment and tools for making progress on the challenges we face as a conference.  The workshop is designed to bring us together around a common challenge, explore a variety of angles of that challenge, and create experiments to make progress on that challenge.  This will be an excellent opportunity both to practice using KLC principles for those who have attended KLC training as well as introduce leaders who have not had the opportunity to attend a training to the concepts taught at KLC. Join for both days or just come for Saturday Workshop.
