Galatians 6:6 Retreats
Quite often, couples in the ministry become so involved in "giving to others" that their personal lives are neglected. They miss out on the first part of the biblical principle found in Matthew 10:8, "Freely you have received, freely give." Therefore, a Galatians 6:6 Retreat is a time of personal renewal and encouragement for ministry couples. It's their time to receive. Galatians 6:6 Retreats are held in various locations across the United States and overseas through strategic partnerships with denominations, other ministries, individuals and Great Commandment Network churches.
Every Moses needs an Aaron... and every pastor needs support—a companion on the journey—someone to say, "I'm on your side. I've been there." That's why Focus on the Family has established this special ministry for pastors and their families, Thriving Pastor. We are here to come alongside each of you as you endeavor to serve the Lord in these most difficult days. Our mission is to facilitate spiritual restoration and renewal for ministry families through resources and services that will assist in bringing balance to their personal and professional lives.
