Registration is open for the 2020 Carolinas Black Clergy Leadership Retreat – “Crossroads: Where Faith and Innovation Meet” – set for May 18-22 at Kingston Plantation in Myrtle Beach.
The retreat is an opportunity to get away to a quiet place to be renewed, reconnected, refreshed and refocused. It’s a chance to get to know new people with whom you share United Methodist DNA, and to be filled as we praise, worship, learn, have some fun – and just take some time to relax.
Just days after the conclusion of the 2020 General Conference, the retreat will address such issues as:
- “An Honest Look in the Mirror: Strategies for Vitality Today and Beyond”
- “Congregational Development for the Black Church: Current Realities and Missional Possibilities”
- “Resourcing and Funding Your Vision: Winning Plans and Proposals”
- “The Power of Godly Vision: Faith and Innovation”
- “Strengthening Our Connection and Networking Opportunities”
- “Where Do We Go From Here?”
