For Pastors and Ministry Leaders
Soul Shepherding is gathering a 5th cohort of pastors and ministry leaders to meet for our TLC training. TLC stands for “To Love Christ!”
We’ll meet in a lovely estate home in Coto de Caza (which is in south Orange County, CA). Each of the main days you’ll have time to relax at a beautiful beach or walk in the hills. In past January retreat weeks we’ve had sunny days with temperatures in the 70’s! (See additional pictures below.)
So far 60 pastors have experienced TLC, with each retreat being limited to a group of about 15 participants. Pastors, counselors, missionaries, and other ministry leaders have attended from all over the United States, Canada, Mexico, Columbia, China, and New Zealand.
This 18-month program features four 5-day retreats on Spiritual Formation in Christ, Spiritual & Psychological Development, Soul Care Ministry, and Spiritual Leadership.
Each day is a blend of conversational teaching in a small group, soul talk, guided experiences in Scripture meditation and prayer, and lots of “TLC Time” (soul space!). You’ll also receive individual spiritual direction/counseling on each retreat from Bill and Kristi Gaultiere. Optional assignments and spiritual direction/counseling between retreats will help you to extend the training for your soul and ministry.
An Authentic Community of Apprentices to Jesus
We host the retreats in our friends’ beautiful and spacious home in sunny Southern California! During the afternoons you can nap, go on a hike, enjoy the ocean or a park, share with a friend, or do whatever else will connect you with Jesus.
All your lodging and meals are provided for you — delicious and healthy! All of your retreat materials are also included. Our TLC cohorts include married couples, singles, and married persons attending without their spouse.
Each TLC retreat begins on Monday at 12 pm and ends on Friday at 12:30 pm. The dates for Cohort 5 are:
- January 16-20, 2017: Spiritual Formation (Life with Jesus in the Kingdom of God)
- July 24-28, 2017: Spiritual & Psychological Development
- January 22-26, 2018: Soul Care Ministry
- July 23-27, 2018: Spiritual Leadership
The cost for each 5-day retreat is $900 per person. (If needed you can apply for a partial scholarship.) Spaces fill up fast! If you have questions or want to complete an application contact us.
