A Two Day Sermon Planning retreat will be held on June 2-3 on the campus of Rock Lake Christian Assembly.
Rock Lake is graciously hosting and providing all of our meals for the event. REGISTER here

Preaching Ministers are invited to come and share upcoming sermon series they are planning and developing.
A part of the retreat will be to share sermon series ideas as well as find partners to work together in preaching an upcoming series.

It is the aim and purpose of this retreat to encourage everyone in the privilege of preaching.
Joining us are John Nugent, Phil Beavers, Andy Bratton and Kris Bargen. John will bring us an in-depth Bible study that we can develop into a series we can all preach well. The others will help us in executing the retreat well so we all leave with fresh sermon series ideas, a scope and plan to our preaching and a connection with other ministers.

This event will work best if we share resources. Bring your favorite series you've preached and one you are excited to preach in the near future.
Together this will be a great retreat for those who love the Lord and love preaching the Word.


You will need bedding and towels. We are staying in the lodges at the camp. These are twin bunk beds.

Fun thing to do on campus are enjoying the lake, playing disc golf, and shooting clays. We will have scheduled down time for fun and relaxation. 

Please come prepared to share a sermon series you have preached that others might want to do. Please also bring a series you are looking forward to preaching. The easiest way to do this is to bring your laptop and any physical materials to be shared. We will create a database with all of the sermon series pitched.
