Pastors and Wives Retreat

We are excited to invite you to our annual Pastors and Wives retreat at the Green Lake Conference Center, Green Lake, Wisconsin, February 2-4, 2023. The theme of this year’s retreat is REST.

Pastor, this invitation was only sent to you, but the retreat is FREE to all MWBC lead pastors plus one additional pastor from churches with multiple pastoral staff, so please pass this on to your other pastoral staff.

If you have more than two pastors/wives who want to attend, please contact Julie Sundeen at or (507)208-3571 and we can work out those details. Funding for the retreat is very limited this year. Perhaps your church could partially fund the retreat for additional staff.

Here are some things to know before you register:

  • The retreat begins Thursday, February 2nd with registration/check-in at 3pm (please do NOT arrive early) and dinner is served at 5pm. The retreat ends with breakfast on Saturday, February 4th.
  • The retreat is designed for fellowship, renewal and growth. The schedule is light. Dress is casual. Childcare is not provided. Infants less than six months or still nursing are welcome. However, since this is a ‘get-away’ weekend for all, you’ll need to find alternative care with friends and family for other children.
  • Friday afternoon is free for you to explore the conference center grounds (bring skis, snowshoes, hiking boots), go shopping in one of the many small towns in the area, fellowship with other couples around a gameboard, or take a well-deserved nap.
  • This retreat is free to you and funded through your church’s Cooperative Program giving.

Now to register:

  • The registration deadline is Wednesday, January 18th or until we reach capacity, at which time, we will start a waiting list.  
  • PLEASE NOTE:  if you are attending as a couple, select -2-, if you are attending as a single, please select -1-, then proceed to click “Reserve a Spot” and complete the reservation form. 

If you have any questions or need any further information, please contact me at or (507)208-3571.

Come!  Join us!  Put faces to names!  Find a new friend!  Encourage one another and be encouraged!
