SoulCare: Winchester

SoulCare: Winchester is a weekend gathering designed to encourage and refresh individuals and couples serving in ministry.  

It's a privilege to serve God in vocational ministry, whether volunteer or paid, part-time or full-time.  It's also exhausting to serve God in vocational ministry.  Most of us struggle to protect our schedules, to create boundaries, and to make sure our own souls are cared for.  We may have the best of intentions, but the realities of ministry often don't respect those intentions.  

But what if you could have time away, even for just a day or two?  What if you could show up to a church gathering that you didn't have to plan?  What if you could be poured into for a time instead of constantly pouring yourself out? 

My wife and I have been blessed to have an experience like this two years in a row with our friends at Two Rivers Church in New Bern, NC.  That's what inspired us to try to give you that same opportunity in our region.

That's what we hope you'll experience at SoulCare: Winchester.
