Event description:

Held in the beautiful retreat setting of Camp Caroline, THRiVE is focused on best practices to foster long-term ministry health. Among the key areas to be discussed are:

  • Spiritual Formation
  • Self-Care
  • Emotional and Cultural Intelligence
  • Leadership / Management
  • Marriage and Family

Meant for anyone in pastoral ministry, including spouses, this is a time of renewal and restoration. Testimonials from past participants confirm that this is a rich and meaningful event.

The event begins on Tuesday evening (May 29th) and concludes on Friday morning (June 1st). In between are many opportunities for workshops, play, rest, meals, prayer, journaling, solitude, nature, fellowship with fellow pastors, and more. 

Please join us at Camp Caroline from May 29 - June 1, 2018 for this unique event. You might ask: Is it for Baptists? Anglicans? Pentecostals? Bi-vocational Pastors? Women? Men? In short, anyone in ministry will find a warm welcome and a diverse group from a wide cross-section of the Church in western Canada. No matter how long you have been in ministry, no matter how well (or how poorly) things are going, and no matter if you feel like you are too busy to attend – This event is for you. 

Join us at this beautiful retreat centre in the Alberta foothills, and become better prepared to develop resilience and to thrive in your ministry.

Since the first THRiVE event in 2014, feedback from participants has quickly shown the value of this event for pastors, and we believe it has the potential to be a priority for many in ministry, a signature event of the Healthy Pastors’ Initiative of Taylor's E P Wahl Centre.
