Creative Retreat Opportunity in the Poconos

Posted: July 31, 2013 in meetings, Retreats, Scripture Visualized, Speaking ministry

I’ve wanted to do this for years and I finally have the opportunity. Friday, September 20 and Saturday, September 21 AMOKArts will be hosting Poconos Create: An Artist and Writers Ministry Retreat.
The cost is $150 and includes a nights’ lodging at the camp and dinner Friday, breakfast and lunch Saturday.
For more details go to the Poconos Create page.

I need a minimum of 15 people to do this event, so please sign up ASAP.

Poconos Create is an opportunity to explore and develop your creativity and how you can use what you have given to serve the Lord. It’s also an opportunity to network and fellowship with other creatives in a fun and relaxed camp setting. During our time together we will have several creative challenges to help you learn to create “on the fly”, collaborate, etc. Friday evening will culminate in a time of creative worship where participants have the opportunity to create in a worship setting. In our last scheduled activity Friday night we will select our topic of focus for Saturday’s activities followed by Free Create/fellowship time where you can connect with others in a creative setting.

Saturday begins bright and early with an optional hike to the lookout. If weather conditions permit, this site provides an amazing panorama of the beautiful Pocono Mountains. From there we will return, have breakfast and start creating. We’ll take the topic we selected Friday evening and develop ways to creatively express the topic in your context. You can work alone or in groups. We’ll finish our time together sharing what we created and a commissioning service.

Join us as we work together to develop and use our gifts to the glory of God.

Join us to CREATE!
