While this event is called “Pastor’s Retreat”, all persons credentialed in Mountain States Mennonite Conference (MSMC) and their families are encouraged to attend. Relaxation and rejuvenation are integral to our communal vision to pursue God’s dreams by the power of the Holy Spirit in the way of Jesus Christ – whether you serve as a congregational pastor or in another role. Please come!

Childcare will not be provided for children this year as families are asked to distance as family units per coronavirus guidelines for the camp.
