Four out of ten church members and a majority of pastors report having a significant spiritual experience through a church camp or retreat time. Unfortunately, most pastors have little training in the art of planning or leading retreats. Very few resources develop the practical aspects of retreat planning, and while some resources offer theme ideas they tend to lack any serious biblical or theological underpinning. Now, The Retreat Leader's Manual offers a practical guidebook for those leading retreats, including the nuts and bolts of how to plan a budget, the right questions to ask about a potential retreat site, and ideas for making Bible study and worship memorable for persons of many ages. Written by veterans in the development of camp programs and the operations of camps and conferences, this resource offers the perfect blend of the theoretical and the practical - the how and the why of leading meaningful retreat experiences.
