Effective Communication in a Pandemic – March 11, 10:00 am

Soul Day: Disorientation and Orientation

Monday, February 8, 9:30-4:30

It has been a difficult year for you, pastors. You have sacrificed your own life for the sake of others. It’s time to receive an invitation to rest from Jesus. It’s time for Him to minister to you. We invite you to Soul Day for Pastors to receive that rest. Rest in our souls and our bodies is needed more than ever. For this Soul Day, we will be spending time meditation on John 21 which was a space of disorientation to reorientation for the disciples.

This guided personal retreat experience will provide a blend of online worship and community and off-line personal spiritual practices.

CBOQ hosts a weekly prayer time for pastors, Tuesdays at 11am. Sign up for a reminder here:
