Pastors and Ministers Retreat

April 29 - May 3, 2024

Our Mission

And he said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat (Mark 6:31 ESV). The Church of God by Faith Annual Pastor’s Retreat exist for the purpose of providing an environment for pastors and minsters to rest, fellowship, enjoy recreational time, and be enriched. 


An annual pastor’s retreat was first envisioned by the late Bishop James E. McKnight, Sr. and coordinated by Pastor James McKnight, Jr. The purpose of this retreat from its inception is to rejuvenate our pastors and ministers by providing an opportunity to rest in a relaxing environment and to enrich them with information to better serve the church.
