Pastoral Leadership Revitalization (PLR), a Lilly Endowment grant in partnership with OPSF that seeks to support isolated and first call ministers in PC(USA) congregations throughout Middle America, is excited to announce the Kansas-Missouri Regional Chapter PLR Retreat, themed CREATIVE WORSHIP WITH SANCTIFIED ART!
Rev. Anna Strickland, operations support, and content creator for Sanctified Art will be our workshop and worship leader for the week. Anna loves getting her hands dirty with paint, charcoal, gardening soil, flour, and sugar, watching the raw materials take on a new life which is greater than the sum of its parts. Anna feels called to creative ministry, both ministry involving the arts and ministry done in new ways and is excited to join us this September at Heartland Retreat Center right outside Kansas City, Missouri.
In addition to having fantastic educational resources with ideas you can use in your own worship setting, the Kansas-Missouri PLR Retreat provides opportunities for personal spiritual renewal and growth; (re-) connection to God, other clergy, and yourself; and even an on sight Spiritual Director for 1:1 sessions.
While PLR participants will have priority registration, this retreat will open to clergy outside of PLR participants. Mark your calendars and save the date for September 18-21.
