Each year following B.C.’s provincial convention, MB pastors and spouses are invited to attend a retreat, sponsored by the B.C. conference, at Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa in the Fraser Valley.
This year, a special guest speaker will address a topic most pastoral couples grapple with: their own personal budget. Mary Hunt, who specializes in “debt-proof living,” has appeared on Oprah, Good Morning America, and other popular network shows, written several books, and writes a syndicated column. Al Thiessen of the Canadian conference’s stewardship ministries, who arranged for the speaker, says Hunt grew up as a PK – a pastor’s kid – so she knows the territory well.
Worship times during the retreat will be led by Starfield.
Pastors can register online for the retreat.
Meanwhile, Mary Hunt’s presence in southern B.C. in May has provided opportunity for a Langley MB church to present a session open to the public in their growing suburban community. Jericho Ridge Community Church is advertising a session on May 5 called “Debt-Proofing Your Life.”
