“Exposing our Blind Spots”

Listening better to serve better

As ministry caregivers, what are we missing as we seek to link arms to care for pastors and leaders? Even more, who are we missing?

This year we’ll be hearing from a diverse panel of ministry leaders representing various affinity groups. They will be speaking about the needs of pastors and leaders in various spheres as we listen and learn how we can more effectively welcome and serve them.


Andy Hagen will join us once again to take us deeper into spiritual refreshment and challenge in the evening sessions. One of us, Andy is a pastor, US Army chaplain (retired) and former retreat center director. He encourages pastors locally and internationally. Andy and his wife Nancy live in Florida and are parents of two daughters and five grandchildren.


Returning to lead us in worship is Stephanie Seefeldt. Stephanie loves to lead God's people in congregational worship, using the best of both historic hymnody and modern worship music. For more than 30 years she has worked as a worship leader in mega churches, neighborhood parishes, para-church organizations, and everywhere in between.

As always, there will also be optional workshops and small groups along with opportunity over meals, between sessions and in free time to network and connect with fellow caregivers. 

Watch for more details in coming months.

Register by July 1 for best prices.
