Pastors, chaplains, and other ministers: Mark your calendars! The district’s spring 2024 clergy retreat will take place April 15-16, again at the beautiful Bishop Lane Retreat Center near Rockford. The main event will be the every-five-years ethics training, led by Office of Ministry director Nancy Sollenberger Heishman, Naperville pastor Dennis Webb, and district executive minister Walt Wiltschek.

The ethics training will occur during three sessions over the course of our time together. The retreat will be about 24 hours, beginning Monday late afternoon and concluding Tuesday afternoon. All participants will have a private room with bathroom. Food, fun, worship, and other activities will also be part of this time together. Watch for additional details soon.
