Pastor's Prayer Retreat

Church of the Valley invites you to spend time in prayer, rest, fellowship and study at the Church of the Valley Pastor’s Prayer Retreat at Lake Bradley Christian Camp (located a few miles south of Bandon, Oregon).

Our guest speaker will be Pastor Dave Drum, Director of Domain Development at 4Tucson, where he helps pastors and churches in Tucson, AZ work more closely together.  Dave has written two books about Christ-centered unity, and will convene our retreat around the theme: 

How Christ-Centered Unity Can Inspire Ministry and Protect from Burnout

THE RETREAT BEGINS Sunday, October 21 at 6:00 PM
& ENDS Tuesday, October 23 before noon.

The cost is only $100 per person which includes lodging and two dinners--breakfast and lunch are not included (kitchens available in each unit), though if you'd like to pitch in for a communal lunch/breakfast contact Josh Johnsen (

The deadline for registration is October 15 with all money due that same day.  Bring toiletries, your Bible, maybe a journal, but mostly a heart and mind open to the Holy Spirit.   

CAR POOLING:  Meet Sunday, October 21 at Parkway Christian Center (229 NE Beacon Drive)

We would like every pastor to come for the complete time we have together. If you are unable to come for the entire prayer meeting this time, we hope you will be able to join us for the next prayer retreat.
