For each of the past 10 years, we have alternated between a national conference and regional conferences. While the regional conferences have added some value, their effectiveness seems to be waning. Therefore in place of the regional conferences for 2011, we are planning a national prayer & ministry retreat. There are two passages of scripture that have shaped our planning of this retreat: Proverbs 4:23 ­ "Above all else guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life" NIV Matthew 11:28-29 ­ "Are you tired? Worn out? Burnt out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me ­ watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace." The Message Bible Therefore, we are calling this retreat the Wellspring Retreat, and the theme for the retreat will be Restoring the Unforced Rhythms of Grace. There will be practical teaching about on sustaining spiritual vitality, soul care and guarding our hearts. In each session and throughout the retreat there will be a ministry team available for those who desire prayer and personal ministry. We are also planning to have Christian counselors available to meet with those who would like to speak with a counselor.

LOCATION: Banff Center, Banff, AB (Learn more at: CONFIRMED SPEAKERS: Rev. Wes Mills, Rev. Kenn Parker and Rev. Rick Parkyn. COST OF THE RETREAT: We have been able to secure an excellent price for accommodations and meeting space at the Banff Conference Centre. However, we realize that it is expensive to travel across the country to a national event like this. So in an effort to help offset some of the travel costs, we have created a two-tier pricing system for this event. The basic Banff Centre rate is $325/person. By increasing this to $335/person for people from the West, we can offer a reduced rate of $235/person for people coming from Ontario ­ East. Conference registration includes double sharing accommodation for 2 nights, conference packets, refreshment breaks and most meals - retreat participants will be responsible for their own evening meals. (Single occupancy rooms are available for an additional $135/person.) Please Note: No honorariums have been promised, but an offering will be collected for those ministering.
