Sabbath Retreat


2017 Sabbath Retreat
  • 2018 Sabbath Retreat details TBD.
  • There is a $250 application fee for this retreat. The fee will be refunded for those not accepted for the retreat.

Sabbath retreats are an opportunity for Covenant pastors, missionaries, and chaplains, offering the chance to revisit the practice of holy rest. Over the course of two-and-a-half days, participants will find the space to pause in the presence of God, moving through the Sabbath rhythms of relinquishing, receiving, and resting. Those who are selected to participate (up to 10 per retreat) will receive a grant, which includes:

  • all expenses for the retreat experience including registration, lodging, food, and materials;
  • a travel reimbursement of up to $450 for transportation to and from the retreat location.
Personal Retreat and Sabbatical Resources

Ministers are encouraged to take an opportunity to pause and reconnect with Christ regularly in their ministerial lives. Many retreat centers offer guided and/or silent retreats, as well as reasonable rates to clergy for short getaways.
