Are you a leader in ministry? We know you are busy, and probably worn out. You may have hopes and a passion for the Lord, or you may be losing hope and drained of passion. Wherever you are in life and ministry, we want to bless you and offer a 24 hour retreat in an intimate setting in a beautiful and relaxing location for you to rest, pray with other leaders and be filled up with the Word.
Join us at the Historic Rosemont Manner in Berryville, VA in the blue ridge mountains for an overnight. All bedding is provided in a clean and beautiful environment. You may bring a friend in ministry with you, or stay in a room by yourself. Food will be provided! Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions, when you register. Near Dulles International Airport, BWI and Reagan International.
We will start at 10 am on Saturday, October the 5th and end at 10 am on Sunday, October the 6th. 24 hours of restoration. If you need to get back to church earlier on Sunday, please leave at your convenience. The itinerary is loose. Did we mention loose and relaxed? The Lord has laid on our hearts to provide a time of respite. This includes taking really good care of you and providing an environment to strengthen you and build you up, where you may be drained and poured out. The best way we know how to do this is through flexible free time, loosely structured prayer time for one another, a time of fasting. (Trust us on this one), meals together, one on one discussion with new and old friends and a couple leadership focused Bible study times. Our first leadership getaway was filled with restoration and refreshment. Women experienced unexpected healing and everyone walked away encouraged.
Prayer, Fasting and Coffee
We may have scared you with the fasting, so we added coffee. The Word speaks of the power of fasting, especially when we are in crisis or in need of a move from the Lord. We are asking all the attendees to participate in our voluntary fast by not eating breakfast or lunch on the day of our event. We will break the fast together at 5 pm on Saturday with a healthy and delicious dinner! Lots of fruits and vegetables will be served with our main course. If you have never fasted and feel unsure, we encourage you to check out Briana’s fasting blogs on this website.
Let’s work together for the kingdom!
