As Jesus illustrated in the Gospels, sometimes it’s good to withdraw by oneself for recovery and rejuvenation from the task of shepherding. Move the Mountain Ministries encourages this by providing information about retreat centers around the country that specialize in providing relaxing and rejuvenating spaces for Christian leaders.

These retreats are also often great spots for team building or team planning meetings, away from the frequent interruptions of church and home. A little time away can often result in a revived spirit for service and ministry.
