Church of God by Faith Pastors’ and Ministers’ Retreat
As shown in the photo below, this retreat has brought the COGBF pastors and ministers together at every level in a relaxing setting. It is held annually (most often) at the Orange Lake Resort and Country Club in Kissimmee, FL This retreat provides fellowship in other ways such as pastoral training, recreation, prayer and daily meditation in God’s word.
The mission of this retreat was articulated by Emeritus Bishop James E. McKnight, Sr. and confirmed by Presiding Bishop James E. McKnight, Jr. and the Executive Council. That is to retreat each year to regenerate COGBF pastors and ministers with rest in a relaxing environment. The goal is to enrich pastors and ministers with information that would help them better serve their church.
