Here I Am: 2016 Church-Wide Retreat (9/23-25)
Yes, it's here! Brothers and sisters from all sites and services will be coming together for a weekend of worship, fellowship, and spiritual rejuvenation. This year we will be going to the Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Waterpark.
We are excited to have Pastor Mark Kim from California as our guest speaker! We will also have a retreat-long children’s program (including hired babysitters & teachers).
All registrations will include lodging, meals, & free access to this new, award-winning water park.
Here's how the registration breaks down:
SINGLE WITH ROOMMATES ($150): For a single registrant who will be assigned to a room with three other people of the same sex.
MARRIED COUPLES WITH ROOMMATES ($300): For husband and wife registrants who are willing to split up and be assigned to room with three other people of the same sex. Fee covers both spouses.
FAMILY ($399): For married couples and families to get their own room.
There is some financial assistance available for those who require aid. (Determined on a case-by-case basis.) If you would like to request this assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will contact you. We do not want your financial situation to prevent you from attending and being blessed!
Pastor Mark grew up on the sunny shores of Honolulu, Hawaii. He headed east for school, graduating with a BA from Cornell University and an MDiv from Yale Divinity School.
While in divinity school, Mark served as a youth pastor at Hartford KUMC in Connecticut for four years, then moved to New York City and served in adult ministry at Morningside UMC for 14 years.
In 2015, Mark and his wife, Christina, felt called to leave the east coast and move to California where Christina works as a school administrator and Mark serves as a part-time children’s pastor at All Nations Church. He looks forward to further studies at Claremont School of Theology this fall.
Along with their twin boys, Caleb and Joshua, they like to go to the beach or spend time at local parks and malls during their free time.
