Pastors Oasis

Mariners’ Cove July 15 - 21, 2023

Pastor Oasis is a week-long family camp and pastors' retreat that provides pastors and their families a time to decompress from ministry and reconnect as a family, as couples, or as an individual. This week is structured to provide personal devotional time, family recreation, and time alone as a couple. In addition, our general sessions are designed to intellectually and spiritually engage the heart, the mind, and the soul in worship of our amazing God.
