This year we are again inviting young girls (third grade and older) to come with an adult for a fun-filled weekend. We will have activities designed specifically for them. Our speaker is Sabrina Falls from Shalom Mennonite in Indy. Happy is the one who finds wisdom and whoever finds wisdom finds life (Proverbs 3:13, 8:35). Register online, or your congregation should have brochures available. Contact Amigo if you need additional information or brochures.
  • Transitional ministry has a unique place in the mission of the church. While “interim pastors” have provided preaching and pastoral care for many years, “transitional ministry” involves training to lead congregations through a process of preparation for entering a new chapter of leadership. October 21-23, 2019, Amigo Centre will host a Transitional Ministry Training retreat for individuals interested in pursuing this type of ministry in Murdock, Kansas, at Camp Mennoscah. Visit for additional information, or contact Amigo Centre at 269.651.2811 and ask for Mandy. You may also email,
