Retreat for Pastors Serving with the Hispanic/Latino Community
The Sumergete Retreat invites pastors in ministry or exploring to be in ministry with the Hispanic/Latino community to spend three days immersing themselves into the heart of the “Good Shepherd” through praise, worship, and theological reflection.
There was honest dialog and willingness to listen to each other. It was a safe space that opened the opportunity for transparency. Mostly, the presence of the Lord was with us and the language of love dominated. – Sumergete participant
This year, we will learn from Rev. Dr. Alexia Salvatierra as she leads participants in breakout sessions that challenge and encourage us to reflect on how to do “faith rooted community organizing” and how to mobilize the Church in service to the world. Dr. Salvatierra is a Lutheran pastor with over 40 years of experience in congregational and community ministry (in English and Spanish), including church-based service and community development programs, congregational/ community organizing and legislative advocacy.
The retreat will be held April 29 – May 1, 2019 at the Trinity Center in Pine Knoll Shores, NC. For more information and/or to register, visit:
