A wonderful time was had by all at our 28th Annual Retreat!

"The Courage to Claim Your Voice"
May 15-16, 2022

We were thrilled to have Lori Archer Raible, Pastor of Selwyn Avenue Presbyterian Church, serve as our retreat leader this year. Lori has served the congregation of her Charlotte, NC church since 2008. She is a graduate of Wake Forest University and earned her Masters of Divinity from Union Presbyterian Seminary in 2006. Lori is passionately involved with the leadership of NEXT Church, serving on the strategy team and previously serving as a Co-Chair for the movement. NEXT Church seeks to connect and equip the leaders of our denomination. Most recently, she has collaborated in the planning of TRENT@Montreat, a national conference designed to support the newly ordained in congregational ministry and a regional symposium to connect and equip elders within the Charlotte Presbytery.

We also enjoyed our cherished traditions: worship in the chapel, woodland walks, the social hour before dinner, the labyrinth, and the campfire. Our retreat coordinator was Michelle Baker and assistant retreat coordinators were Christina Carlisle and Nancy Davis.

Save the Date!

Our 2023 retreat will be held January 13-14.
