Pastor Renewal Retreat

Pastor Renewal Retreat: Proclaiming Truth in Today’s Angry World

with Erwin Lutzer

March 23-25, 2020

As a pastor, how should you approach and engage a culture that’s becoming more and more hostile to faith in Jesus Christ? Like the Israelites in Babylon, we must find a way to be faithful to God’s truth in the midst of a pagan society. But that requires that we answer two crucial questions:

How did we get here?

How can our preaching prepare our flocks for the dark and difficult days ahead?

Together we will mine the Bible’s wisdom and avoid ministry pitfalls. Discern what to preach about and learn to prepare simpler, clearer, and more powerful sermons. Anticipate renewal in your calling, convictions, and responsibilities. (1 Timothy 4:11-16)
