What: Costa Rica Missionary Retreat
When: Arrive by 12 pm May 6 (for ground transport), Depart May 11
Where: La Fortuna/Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica
Why: We believe in the necessity and value of member care, and growing that care is a strategic focus for 2016. Regional retreats allow us to give face-to-face care to our missionaries in a place that's convenient to where they live and minister.
This May, our Costa Rica Retreat will be a gathering of pastors and missionaries, both nationals and expats to the region, as well as Global staff and friends, including former missionaries. The retreat is meant to provide a space to worship, share, grow, and rest together as a body of believers. Retreat topics will include leading the modern mission movement, cross-cultural stress, spiritual and physical health, and more. Our team will also provide one-on-one coaching sessions. Childcare will be provided during retreat sessions. There will be time for relaxation as well as local activities, ranging from bird watching to hiking around the volcano to ziplining to boat rides and more! The hotel cost is $180 a night per couple and includes a room, food, and coffee breaks. Contact us to learn more about prices for additional family members.
Remember...you too are invited! We anticipate God will grow and teach us with so many different people, perspectives, and ministries joining together to celebrate Him. If you are a missionary, we want you there to add to the discussion and to receive your own growth and refreshment. If you're a missionary, whether with Global Outreach or otherwise, you're invited. Won't you join us?
Please fill out the contact form if you or someone you know are interested in learning more about being a part of our retreat this May. We ask that potential participants respond no later than April 6, 2016.
