EMCC Pastoral Couples' Retreats

Planned by local pastors and leaders, the EMCC Pastoral Couples' Retreats are held annually in or near Banff, Alberta and in the Niagara Region of Ontario, toward the end of January.

The focus is on restoration and renewal in the midst of the demands of ministry. You will be encouraged through thoughtful teaching and worship. There is lots of opportunity for connecting with one another and for simply enjoying the beauty of the area.
