In WMCNZ we believe that discipleship is a whole life process and investing in the spiritual and physical health of our pastors is essential to growing healthy churches. REFRESH is a pastoral formation retreat designed with ministers and their spouses in mind to build into the health and wellbeing of our pastoral leaders and equip them for the unique challenges of pastoral ministry.

The goals of our time together will be to refresh, reconnect and refocus as we share the journey of pastoral leadership. It's our prayer that at the conclusion of our retreat we will have heard the voice of God in our own lives, received help and support from our peers and identified our next growth step as Ministers.

REFRESH 2022 will be held 20 - 22 May at Flaxmill Accommodation and Venue in the Coromandel.



Refresh 2022 will be held at Flaxmill - a retreat and accommodation venue in Flaxmill Bay, Whitianga.
