ELIM Retreats, as a ministry of Barnabas International, is devoted to caring for the lives of global workers. ELIM offers six day retreats for local church leadership and missionaries for rest, recovery, reflection, recreation and renewal.
Spiritual Care For Missionaries And Pastors
Henry and Diane Stewart have been Barnabas International staff members since 1999. As a result of years as local church pastoral leaders and as servants to Global Workers, they began ELIM Retreats to shepherd the lives of Christian workers. ELIM Retreats welcomes missionaries working state-side or cross-culturally, state-side pastors and spouses, denominational and agency leadership.
One key theme is explored in each ELIM retreat: "Finding Christ’s Rest in the Midst of Stress".
Some of our core values include:
- Securing safe, well-appointed and private retreat facilities in gorgeous natural settings
- Providing retreats in which Christian workers can truly be “off”
- Low key, intentional times of learning, worship, and prayer
