Victorian Pastors were richly blessed as they met together for three days in March. The retreat provided a time for pastors to fellowship, spend time in the Bible together, engage in wide ranging discussions and pray together.
Jerry and Janet Page, from the General Conference, were the main presenters. Jerry is the Ministerial Association Secretary while Janet oversees Partners in Ministry and Prayer Ministry. Together they led the pastors into rich times of prayer, drawing closer to God and to each other. Many felt it was the best retreat they had experienced yet.
The annual pastors retreat, held in the first quarter of the year, provides an opportunity to get away from the regular rush of life and study and pray together. Various church leaders, pastors and academics have presented at past meetings.
With many heavily involved in preparation for ‘Revelation Today’, this year’s focus was particularly relevant and the meetings were not just a time to talk about prayer but to enter into prayer. Many were encouraged, refreshed and inspired to a deeper experience of prayer.
