Converge PacWest Pastors' & Spouses' Retreat 2019

“The joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10 

This is a remarkable point delivered to Nehemiah and a people ravaged by war, weakened by insecurities, and constantly reminded of their own fragility. And this is where we can find our strength: for life, for pain, for trials, for marriage, for child-raising, for ministry, for the Mission, for everything. The strength we need for this life is found in the essential joy of God. You will never be spiritually stronger than your God is happy. God’s joy is our strength. —Tony Reinke, adapted  


PacWest lead and solo pastors and their spouses are invited to join us for a fabulous time of relishing the joy of the Lord together as pastoral couples!  Our speakers will be Damon Owens, Jim Achilles, and Dr. Harold Lewis.  Register by December 5th!

comedian Nazareth

We'll be joined Monday night by comedian Nazareth, further demonstrating the retreat's theme of JOY!
  Nazareth's inspirational comedy has reached millions on television broadcasts (Comedy Central, ABC Family, and more) and his varied audiences have included teenagers, Congressmen, corporate employees, and Death Row our group of pastors and spouses shouldn't faze him at all!  Beyond the stage, Nazareth and his wife of twenty-two years and their three children live in Southern California.
