"Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere, and sometimes in the middle of nowhere you find yourself"

 

 

Stories are on their way! Here are some quotes from pastors who have participated in RenewU:

“RenewU provided a place where e-mail, social media, and all electronic noise was replaced with silence, solitude, and rest. The opportunity to spend time enjoying God’s undisturbed creation is a re-energizing gift for any pastor.”
— David, Assistant Pastor at Judson Baptist Church
“As Pastors, our heart is the primary instrument of our vocation. With our heart, we engage the word of God, and listen to the leading of God, and tend to hurting souls entrusted to our care. We cannot maintain this important work if we do not tend to the condition of our own heart. Like a craftsman keeps his tools in good repair, so the pastor must keep his heart in prime condition. My time with the RenewU ministries has helped me do just that. In the wilds of Alaska, I had a chance to see the handiwork of God, the beauty of His creation, and to plunge deeply into meaningful rest and recreation. It was absolutely rejuvenating for my heart, and ultimately, (I trust) a blessing for my congregation.”
— Eric, Pastor at Bethel Church
“Spending time with the Sacketts in Alaska was a very fun, refreshing and beneficial experience for me.”
— Tom, Pastor at Fellowship Baptist Church
