ConVerge19

We want to invite you and your entire leadership team to join us for two days in Santa Clarita for our Fall Leaders Conference to make room for God's powerful presence as we experience ministry that is dialed into its context.

The speakers and schedule of ConVerge19 have been framed out for you to benefit from a restful setting and pace, time to enjoy meaningful relationships, and sessions to be re-energized in heart and mind as you continue to make your unique kingdom contribution. The theme of this year’s conference is “CoLAB: The Future is in the Field.” The vision is to highlight and celebrate voices from the field as well as to promote collaboration and partnership among churches and leaders throughout Southern California. Each plenary session, workshop and breakout session will serve to equip and support leaders in the areas of church transformation, leadership development and/or church multiplication.

We will be welcoming our Foursquare president-elect, Randy Remington, on this the first night of the conference as we celebrate the new season that the Lord is bringing our Foursquare family into.

SoulCare Retreat 2018

to Nov 18

SoulCare Retreat 2018

  • Mary & Joseph Retreat Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Demands of ministry and pace of life are shrinking our souls and tempting us to serve out of wells that are drying up rather than overflowing. SoulCare and self-care become the early losers when we’re stretched thin and pushing our margins. Who God made us to BE too often takes second place to what He has called us to DO. How do we bring these two equally important concepts to a more overflowing, flourishing place of joy in our lives?

Come away with us for a weekend of discovery that will help you to recalibrate your soul! SoulCare will give you tools that you can take home with you to help you create a more sustainable and fruitful rhythm of life and ministry.

Location: Mary and Joseph Retreat Center (map)

Registration: Limited to 15 couples or singles and is first-come, first-served by order of receipt or fee. If the registrant is married, spouses are encouraged to be part of the retreat, but it is not mandatory.

Cost: $300 per couple or individual with their own room or $150 per individual sharing a room.

Deadline to register: November 6, 2018

Registration information will be available in the coming weeks.
