Last week, GCIM launched a new outreach in partnership with Kingdom Building International. We hosted a retreat for missionaries and international pastors in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Nine individuals from five different nations gathered together for a time of rest and refreshment, as well as an opportunity to exchange ideas and solutions concerning issues that missionaries and church leaders face. A great deal of time focused on personal issues relating to retirement, financial planning, personal health, and well-being.
This was an amazing week. We have already received feedback from all the attendees that this retreat was unlike anything that they have attended in the past. Some of the feedback from attendees included:
“I have never had such an amazing learning time in my entire ministry of 27 years. Your action spoke volumes about your servant attitude in Christ.”
“It made me understand that my priority after my relationship with God is my wife and my family, and it is not un-spiritual to look and plan for your family and future – that was huge !!!”
“After this week, I will be a better Husband, Father to my children, and pastor for God’s people. I am eternally thankful for all that made this week possible!”
GCIM is excited about partnering with Kingdom Builders to enhance our outreach to international pastors and missionaries. We are already in the planning stages of duplicating this retreat in other nations of the world. Continue to visit our website to learn more or to give your support for future retreats!
