DBC Pastors And Families Gather For Retreat

A total of about 55 DBC pastors, pastor’s wives, and their families gathered in Mandan last month for a weekend of fellowship, encouragement, and activity. The featured speaker for the weekend was Joe Wright, executive director for the SBC Bivocational and Small Church Leadership Network. Wright and his wife Pennie also led small group breakout times with the men and women.

Tony Martin, from the Mississippi Baptist Convention, provided entertainment both Thursday and Friday evening with his illusions. A team from Connection Church in Belle Fourche, SD conducted activities for the children and youth.

Next year’s retreat will be for pastors and wives. It will be August 15-17 in Mobridge, SD. The featured speakers will be Jamie and Tara Dew. Jamie is the president of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
