Hear the Call: October 11-13, 2024
Wondering if God is calling you into mission service?  This event is for you!

Explore your call to join God in global mission during this weekend retreat.  Hear the Call is a powerful discernment experience for adults feeling called to short term mission trips or long-term global service.

This is a unique opportunity to interact with global servants and staff of International Ministries who will help you evaluate your call, answer questions, and address misconceptions of what it means to serve cross-culturally.  This interactive weekend includes worship and Bible study, small group discussions and inspirational messages from those who have walked the path already. You will have personal reflection time set against the beautiful backdrop of the Glen Eyrie Castle & Conference Center, nestled among the red rocks of Colorado.

The retreat begins on Friday, October 11 at 7:00pm and ends on Sunday, October 13 at 9:00pm. Please plan to arrive in time for supper at 6:00pm and depart after breakfast at 7:30am on Monday, October 14.
