If you are a pastor or seminarian in 12-Step recovery
you are invited to take a journey of personal enrichment,
fellowship and spiritual renewal.

For the past 20 years our retreats have been highly appreciated and praised by our members. A recent attendee of
our Holden Village retreat said, “That was the most amazing,
refreshing, and ridiculous weeks of my life. I’ve never
laughed so much and I’ve never felt more connected to my fellow clergy that meaningfully. I feel like I have gotten some of my life back.”

This is a continuing education opportunity, but not in the traditional sense. This is about growing in faith, growing in recovery, deepening our under-standing of ourselves and how we best serve the Lord as clergy and as recovering people.

Flexibility and openness are the words for a cruise retreat.
Depending on the ships schedule and planned
excursions participants will meet each day for worship,
12-step meetings and theological workshops built
around the ships schedule.

On our cruise ship retreats there are many opportunities
for table fellowship, enjoying an extensive variety
of excellent food. We will break bread together daily
and enjoy rich and renewing fellowship with laughter,
joy and gratitude.

On a cruise ship you find rest. Pastors are notoriously
busy people. To be good stewards of our lives we
serve faithfully, but as even our creator took rest and our
Lord withdrew for times of renewal we too must take the
time to rest and recharge. A cruise ship seems an unusual
place for a pastor to find rest, but you will find it. Pastors and their spouses from our last two cruises were
gushing with praise for how refreshed and renewed they
felt after this time away together.

Secure your space with a deposit, and make payments as needed, with full payment due by December 1, 2014.
