Local Pastor and Member of Other Denominations Retreat


THRIVE: Greater Things



An experience for Local Pastors and Members of Other Denominations 

April 27, 2019

Ridgecrest Retreat Center in Black Mountain, NC  http://ridgecrestconferencecenter.org/

Made available at a reduced cost with gratitude to The Duke Endowment


The “greater things” Jesus invites us to participate in are about demonstrating, illustrating, and expressing God’s love to people.  These are the greater things that we are invited by Jesus to do. And they help us to thrive!


Speaker: Rev. Jorge Acevedo, Lead Pastor of Grace Church, a multi-site, United Methodist congregation in Southwest Florida.  Jorge has a heart for local pastors and has nurtured the call of members of his congregation to respond and become a local pastor.  Patti Nemazie, a local pastor and the Grace Church, Sarasota Campus Pastor will accompany Jorge.  She is in the Course of Study at Duke (so some people may know her) and will share in leadership.

Jorge is the author of the book that we’ve been using in the mentoring program this year: Vital: Churches Changing Communities and the World.

Follow Jesus. Make Disciples. Transform the World.
