Pastor Gathering cancelled for this year.
The groups planning November’s Pastor Gathering believe it is not wise to ask pastors to come from across IMMC to Amigo Centre this year. There is also awareness of Zoom fatigue, and pastors are encouraged to attend those. Therefore, the 2020 Pastor Gathering is cancelled.
Note from Leadership Enhancement Team
“With the cancelling of this year’s retreat, we want to give you a special encouragement to find space for self-care during these unusual, and often stress-filled times. Plan a day of retreat where you can social distance and enjoy God’s creation in a way that you find meaningful. Amigo offers this type of opportunity, you can check with them for availability. If it’s difficult to get away for an entire day, plan a shorter event, and even consider planning your self-care time/day over the original retreat days when we would have gathered. We anticipate and look forward to being with you at next year’s retreat!”
