Pastor's Renewal Retreat

2024 Event: October 7-9

The Pastor’s Renewal Retreat (formerly Preaching Pastors Retreat) is an opportunity for clergy and other ministry leaders to come together along the shores of Lake Tahoe to rest and recharge for the ongoing sustainability of their ministry.  Not only will you get the chance for some Pastoral R&R, but you will have the opportunity to get inspired through collaborative roundtable conversations with colleagues in ministry, participate in rich and varied worship experiences, and connect with the earth as you encounter the breathtaking beauty of the Tahoe basin.

Recognizing that there are many ways of exercising pastoral leadership, all ministry leaders, lay and ordained alike, are invited to participate in the Pastor’s Renewal Retreat. We hope that no matter where you are in your ministry journey, you will find spiritual nourishment throughout the event.




The Pastor’s Renewal Retreat is co-sponsored by Zephyr Point and the North Central California Presbytery. Ministry leaders in NCCP will be eligible for a discounted rate, but all are welcomed to join for this restorative and empowering event.

   Keynote Speaker for 2024

                                                 We are so excited to welcome Rev. Dr. Theresa Cho as our keynote speaker for PRR 2024. 

Theresa is a pastor at St. John’s Presbyterian Church in San Francisco. For 20 years, she’s integrated intergenerational ministry with visual and communal art. Her ministry has also focused on leading congregational and organizational change as well as immigrant justice and converting church buildings into affordable housing and community centers.
