Join Us for a Special Getaway!

Whether you already partner with us, have people in your congregation who generously support our work, or if this is a first introduction, we are honored to have a few days together with you. The goal of this retreat is to encourage and refresh you through a purposeful space for rest and some good fun. 

Jo Anne Lyon, General Superintendent Emerita and Ambassador of The Wesleyan Church, is our keynote speaker and will encourage us throughout our time together. We will also hear from Randy Remington, President of the Foursquare Church, Mike Mercer, President of Compassion First, and Valerie Bellamy, Director of Operations at Compassion First.

Our retreat venue, Cannon Beach Conference Center, is situated very close to downtown Cannon Beach so that you can explore the variety of local shops and enjoy the many hiking trails and the expansive beachfront, featuring the notable Haystack Rock.

The beautiful Oregon Coast is waiting to give you a big hug. We hope it feels like an encouraging embrace from God Himself.



We have planned a full schedule of worship, fellowship, learning, celebration, and play into our time together.
