Clergy in South Carolina, North Carolina and Western North Carolina annual conferences will head to Myrtle Beach this month for the Carolinas Black Clergy Leadership Retreat, set for Aug. 30 to Sept. 3.
With the theme “Crossroads: Where Faith and Innovation Meet,” all clergy are invited.
It is hosted by all three annual conferences and will be held at Kingston Plantation on the beach.
Retreat leaders include Bishop L. Jonathan Holston, resident bishop of the South Carolina Conference, to speak on “The Next Faithful Step: Strategies for Vitality Today and Beyond”; Dr. Joe Daniels and Dr. Regina Henderson-Moore, to speak on “The Gift of Innovation”; Rev. James Friday, to speak on “Current Realities and Missional Possibilities”; and Dr. Christopher Brady, to speak on “Re-Frame, Re-Focus, Re-Tool for Resiliency.”
Organizers said the retreat is an opportunity to get away to a quiet place to be renewed, reconnected, refreshed and refocused.
Registration is $150 for clergy and $50 for a spouse. Virtual registration is $75. Registration goes through Aug. 16.
