Persons in Ministry Retreat

  • Inn at Grand Glaize 5142 Hwy 54 Osage Beach, MO 65065 (map)

This year's theme is "Pastoral, Prophetic, Perturbed: Ministry in Turbulent Times."

The speaker for this year's retreat is Rev. John Thomas, who has recently retired from Chicago Theological Seminary and is a former General Minister and President of the United Church of Christ.

Registrations due September 11th. $135. Please make lodging reservations directly with the Inn at Grand Glaize.

Thanks to the Rickman Leadership Development Fund, ministers attending PIM for the first time will have 100% of their registration costs returned to them.  (2nd year returnees - 50% and 3rd year returnees - 25%).  Lodging, extra meals and transportation remain your responsibility.  Rebate forms will be handed out at the retreat.  Authorized ministers who wish to receive a rebate must be current on their required Boundary & AR/PR trainings and have turned in their 2016 Continuing Education Report.

Very special thanks to Rev. Ed Varnum who has written a theme song for the retreat! 
Have a listen!           Music & lyrics
