We hosted our 2016 Midwest District (Missouri and Kansas Districts) church worker retreat on Oct. 17 – 21, in Branson, MO. The 5-day, 4-night retreat was held at Big Cedar Lodge, a grand wilderness resort, reminiscent of lavish, turn-of-the-century Adirondack hunting lodges, but with all the modern conveniences. Participants came from Missouri and Kansas Districts along with couples from Nebraska, Oklahoma and the English Districts. Facilitators were Rev. Dr. Lee Hagan, Missouri District President and from Grace Place Wellness, Rev. Dr. Darrell Zimmerman and Dr. John Eckrich. Each participant left the retreat with guidance and the beginnings of a wellness plan for that aspect of healthy, balanced living that they choose to work on through post-retreat disciplines. Blessings to everyone that attended!
