"The Courage to Claim Your Voice"

We are pleased that Lori Archer Raible, Pastor of Selwyn Avenue Presbyterian Church, will be our retreat leader this January. Lori Archer Raible has served the congregation of this 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.

Of course our retreat wouldn’t be complete without the many traditions we cherish: worship in the chapel, woodland walks, the social hour before dinner, the labyrinth, the campfire, and a mission project. Our retreat coordinator this year is Michelle Baker and assistant retreat coordinators are Christina Carlisle and Nancy Davis.

The retreat registration deadline is Friday, April 29, 2022.
