Refresh Pastors & Spouse Retreat 2023

May 28 - May 30

Registration Cost – $300/person

We want to do everything possible to make this retreat accessible for all our MBCM Pastors. If the retreat cost is a barrier for you, please reach out to us at info@mbcm.ca.

We are excited to be heading back to the Lakeview Hecla Resort for the 2023 Refresh Pastor’s Retreat.

Your planning team has been working hard to provide another pastor retreat that fosters connection, refreshment and freedom for you to access that in the way that you need it most. This might mean spending time alone, going on hikes, accessing the spa and skipping all the sessions! If that appeals to you, please come. Connection and refreshment might also mean worshiping and learning together, and spending time getting to know others in your MBCM community. If this is what you were hoping for, please come!  

The days at our Refresh Retreat will have a regular rhythm of food, community and free time. Meals will be shared, followed by a worship and speaker session with plenty of free time to follow.

The Lakeview Resort at Hecla offers a beautiful landscape with Lake Winnipeg just a short walk away. There are walking and hiking paths accessible from the resort as well as longer more challenging hikes in the area. Visit this site to explore some hiking options.

If you’re a golfer, bring your clubs! There are always a few groups that hit the links.

Guest Speakers & Worship Leader

Carolyn Klassen

Carolyn Klassen is a therapist in Winnipeg and speaker at Wired for Connection. Her many years of providing therapy provide her with a wealth of knowledge about people—including topics like grief, pain, anxiety, depression, joy and grace that are not easily or often spoken about in polite company. She has a Master’s Degree in therapy and frequently appears on news programs as an expert on relationships and mental health. She attends The Meeting Place in Winnipeg, where she is a member of the teaching team and an elder.

To Be Announced

We are pursuing a second speaker to share the sessions with Carolyn, however, things are not quite finalized yet so stay tuned!

A Manitoba provincial park pass is required
