Leading: Retreats for Ministry Leaders

In addition to our SoulCARE cohort, WellSpring offers a variety of retreats to help professional and lay ministry leaders enliven their relationship with God.

We work with a consortium of churches and ministries in the Bay Area to provide settings and facilitators to lead retreats that are helpful to pastors, elder boards, staff, lay leadership teams and spouses. We help each leader develop their unique rhythm for living and leading out of an overflow of their life with God.

Each retreat offers input on a theme and leads participants into ways of engaging with God including directed silence and solitude, guided meditation on scripture, prayer and listening, artistic expression and journaling. We aim for deep impact that transforms the way leaders live and lead.

How to Fail Successfully: Peter’s Road to the Cross

The sports and business communities have long embraced some form of the slogan popularized by Michael Jordan, “To learn to succeed, you must first learn to fail.” The disciple Peter certainly learned about failure as he traveled with Jesus on his way to the cross. In fact, Peter’s journey included greater failure than he ever dreamt possible in the heartbreaking disgrace of his disavowal of his teacher, Jesus. But Peter’s journey to the cross was also the path to the love, forgiveness, and empowerment of God that transformed him into a pillar of Jesus’ fledgling church.

Join us as we accompany Peter on the road to the cross and invite his experience to inform our own. We will pay attention to the ways our failures can open us to God’s transforming love and grace in ways we may not have imagined possible.
