Join us Monday, October 29, 2018 from 8:30-4pm
as we kick off our 17th season of leaders days of rest and renewal.



This year we take a deeper dive into Jesus’ special invitations to ministry leaders. In a turbulent world there’s never been more need for those who lead to do so from a powerful and life-giving place with our transforming Leader!

Each retreat day will be structured around brief leader reflections, along with lots of time to be alone, reflect, rest, hear from God, share, and just experience God’s care.


$65.00, includes lunch.

For partial scholarships please call 763-449-9009 or email info@wellrefreshed.com.


A really special feature of these days is their beautiful rural setting –  close to the Twin Cities yet in the heart of the country. Enjoy the hushed quiet of winding country roads and fruitful fall fields. It’s more than worth the drive! View Shepherd’s Hill Farm by clicking the link below.
