Press pause on all the pressures of ministry to refill your cup at this Life Together Retreat. Your leader care retreat provides a safe place where pastors, leaders, and friends of the Alliance of Renewal Churches can gather with intention to share life, grow in authentic relationship with one another, worship in a relaxed

and unhurried setting, as well as receive teaching, personal prayer, and encouraging prophetic ministry. All of that, and still plenty of time for rest and fun!

We welcome Mark Spencer as our upcoming retreat speaker! 

Mark loves to see people connect with God and each other -- that passion has driven his 40 years of ministry. 

Mark has master’s degrees in marriage and family and theological studies from Bethel Seminary.

He is married to Betsy and they have five children and four granddaughters. 

He loves to read and learn, and plays guitar, mandolin and ukulele. He loves the outdoors, birding and chocolate!
