Thriving in Babylon
The BCMB Pastor & Spouse Retreat is an opportunity to rest, reflect, and refocus on your spiritual wellbeing. This year’s retreat will explore how to lead a godly and high-impact life while living under the pressures of today’s culture. Guest speaker, Larry Osborne, will lead us through sessions based on his book, Thriving in Babylon: Why Hope, Humility, and Wisdom Matter in a Godless Culture.
At BCMB, we appreciate our pastors and spouses and all that you do together to shepherd the people of God in your communities. We hope the food, accommodations, teaching, and fellowship of our BCMB community will bring you rest and renewed hope.
This event is limited to BCMB pastors and their spouses. Singles are also welcome.
