REFUEL 2021 v 3

Enabling Church leaders to connect with one another, building trust and developing community while spending time being revitalized and refreshed. 

Refuel Mentoring Retreat is a unique retreat specifically designed for Senior Leaders and/or their spouses. The goal for this event is that senior leaders will leave Refuel refreshed spiritually, emotionally and physically.

This retreat is for one senior leader and their spouse from your church, to join us at Refuel Mentoring Retreat in the company of fellow leaders to recalibrate and renew!

The retreat will be starting at 1pm Tuesday 2 November thru to 11 am Thursday 4 November.  All travel arrangements must be made outside of these times. The cost to attend is $340 per person and includes all meals and share accommodation. Your flights are additional.

Are you leading from a healthy place, spiritually, emotionally and physically? How would those that know you best answer that question about you? Here’s a better question: How would the Lord answer that question as he looks at the way you are living and leading? 

At Refuel Mentoring Retreat 2021 we plan to take a step back to explore these questions while enjoying the company of other senior leaders just like you.

For a number of years now, Living Stones has offered Refuel as an opportunity for Pastors to leave the joys and burdens of church leadership behind and come to a quiet place to find some soul rest. This invitation is for one senior leader and spouse from your church to join us at the Refuel Mentoring Retreat 2021 in the company of fellow leaders, to reflect healthy leadership. Please still join us if your spouse is unable to attend. This is not a marriage retreat and you will gain maximum benefit either way.

Kelvin Gardiner, pastor and mentor to many pastors around the world, based in Christchurch, will be sharing ways for us to look at our true self... Kelvin's sweet spot is speaking into the lives of church leaders and encouraging them to take care of their own soul care. We will provide ample time to process what the Spirit is saying to us. 

This year the Refuel Mentoring Retreat will be at the Rydges Formosa in Beachlands, Auckland.. The Retreat will start with lunch at 1:00pm Tuesday 2 November through to 11:00 a.m. Thursday 4.  All airport arrivals into Auckland on Tuesday must be by 11:30am and departures on Thursday from 1:00pm onwards.

Come with a prayerful and expectant spirit - that the Lord Jesus will grace us with a sense of his Presence as we come with him to a quiet place to get some well-needed rest.
