Each year as fall schedules begin to pick up, we set aside time as pastors to refocus and refresh as we head into another exciting season of ministry.

As a District, our mission is to build quality Christian leaders and healthy faith communities to fulfill the Great Commission, and we know that prayer is at the heart of it all. As Oswald Chambers commentated in his devotional, My Utmost for His Highest, “Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer IS the greater work.”

We believe the Prayer and Fasting Retreat is a springboard for renewed vision for every minister in Minnesota. Join us at Lake Geneva Christian Center for three days of prayer, fellowship, and fasting.

This is your chance to get away from the routines of life and ministry and spend time in prayer and reflection. We encourage you to come with your pastoral team to dream about all God has in store for you, your community, and our world in the coming year!
