“Ministry begins with rest.” Your perspective and power as a Christian leader and minister comes from time away in God’s presence. This week of TLC (“To Love Christ”) focuses on “Spiritual Leadership” and will be at Hilltop Retreat Center in Idyllwild, CA. (Here are some Facebook photos: Soul Shepherding TLC at Hilltop.)

So far 60 pastors and leaders (men and women in ministry) have experienced TLC! They’ve come from literally around the world. Each retreat being limited to a group of about 15 participants. The full two-year program features four 5-day retreats to foster your abiding in Christ and fruitfulness in ministry. If we have space you can attend this five-day experience as a stand alone retreat.

Each day of TLC 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 and in-between retreats. Optional assignments between retreats will help you to extend the training for your soul and ministry.

During the afternoons you can nap, go on a hike, drive to the lake, share with a friend, or do whatever else will connect you with Jesus. TLC stands for “To Love Christ!”

All your lodging and meals are provided for you — delicious and healthy! All of your retreat materials are also included. You can attend alone or as a ministry couple.


The cost for each 5-day retreat is $900 per person. (If needed you can ask for a partial scholarship.) If you have questions or want to complete an application contact us.
