Pastors and their wives attended a recent retreat in Park City, Utah, with the purpose of encouraging them in their ministry.
“The hope for this event is that pastors and their wives know they are appreciated for the work they do serving churches across our two states,” noted Rob Lee, Utah Idaho Southern Baptist Convention executive director about the July 18–20 event. “Our 2023 Recharge: Pastors and Wives Retreat at Newpark Resort was a huge success and would not have been possible without partnership between three entities working together with one goal in mind: to bless the pastors and their wives who bless our churches across Utah and Idaho.”
The Utah Idaho Southern Baptist Convention partnered with GuideStone Financial Resources and the North American Mission Board to cover expenses so that pastors could attend.
The three days were highlighted by four sessions with a focus on encouragement. Free time was provided for couples to interact with other guests or spend time together.
One pastor from Caldwell, Idaho, noted, “They spoiled us rotten and refilled our hearts and souls. My only regret is that it’s taken me 17 years to make the time to go.
“If you are a pastor and they invite you to the next one of these events, drop everything and go! You won’t be disappointed.”
