The 2019 Bishop's Retreat will be held from January 21-23, at the Hershey Lodge. This retreat serves as a time of learning, spiritual refreshment, some free time, and a chance for church leaders to share with each other.

Our guest speaker will be Rev. Alfred T. Day, who serves as the General Secretary of the United Methodist Commission on Archives and History. Prior to his current appointment, Rev. Day served as a District Superintendent and as the Senior Pastor at the historic St. George's United Methodist Church, Philadelphia in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference. Rev. Day will be helping us deepen our understanding of United Methodist history during the challenging times from a historical perspective which will help us enlighten the present and envision the future.
