We trust you have been planning and looking forward to our Pastors & Spouse Retreat for 2014! A great deal has taken place since last year at this time, so a wonderful opportunity to come away ~ together as a district leadership family ~ to set the tone for a new year and a new beginning. Jane Lee Logan says it well, Sometimes things have to fall away but only to make way for a new season. With this in mind, we invite you to, not fall away, but come away from your busy schedule to be spiritually renewed through relaxation and the ministry of others to prepare for the new season. Share this with your associates, evangelists, chaplains and retired ministers and missionaries in your congregation. They, too, are invited. Thank you for spreading the word.
What a treat to have our new district superintendent, Pastor Brian Wilson and his lovely wife, Joan, to share with us during these few days together! This will be a perfect opportunity to get to know them and to hear and feel their heartbeat for Southern Florida. We hope you will not only feel it is your responsibility to be here, but that you will feel you can hardly wait to be here! As you will read in the next few paragraphs of this letter, we are doing everything possible to assure everyone can be a part of this beginning season, of a rebirth for each one individually, and as a district family.
We have sent a letter to each church board secretary to remind the church board and congregation of the local church responsibility to provide funds for you and your pastoral ministry team to attend this district activity. Attached to this email you will find the registration form and a tentative schedule. Please have your registration form and check to the district office by the extended date of September 12th! You may also register online at www.sfnazarene.org or below.

Register Deadline – Thursday, September 18th
The days have been changed to Friday evening through Sunday lunch to enable more of our bi-vocational pastors the ability to participate. We encourage you to use your favorite pulpit supply person to preach for you on Sunday the 5th, or to pray and choose a good layperson to share the Word in your stead. It will be good for all involved!
It is a privilege to provide you with wonderful accommodations and delicious food at minimal cost! We charge $100 per couple or $50 per person to underwrite the expenses of the Holiday Inn rooms, speakers travel and honorarium and incidentals. If your church cannot afford this, they have been instructed to let us know!
We are thankful for the marvelous Conference Center God has provided for our use! We especially appreciate our Executive Director, Anthony Haney and his wonderful staff for the hospitality and service we enjoy! Anthony has again, comped our rooms, meals and all our conference center has to offer us by way of activities.
