Church Leaders Retreat

May 11 - 13

You are invited to Ontario’s beautiful Muskoka region for a time of encouragement and rest, May 11-13, 2020. The Shepherd Leader, featuring speakers Tim Witmer and Steve West, will focus on the centrality of the shepherding metaphor in the Scriptural picture of leadership. How are we to think about this ancient agricultural imagery in the modern world? What does it look like in the church and in the home? Come and hear about the biblical mandate to care for our flocks, our brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as practical approaches to shepherding.

Church leaders from Canada and the United States are welcome to attend, and we encourage you to bring your spouse for a getaway. We know that you have demanding jobs and full calendars—understanding the importance of rest we’ve built time into the schedule for you to enjoy the retreat center. The Muskoka Bible Centre (MBC) is located in a spectacular setting and offers delicious meals and a variety of accommodations to suit your preferences. There are also many activities to participate in including mini-golf, disc golf, tennis, shuffleboard, and bocce, as well as waterfront activities (weather dependent) and walking trails. For more information about MBC, visit their website or call them at 705-789-0123.
