2019 Children’s Leaders Retreat

January 23 – 26

About this Event

We are inviting all Children’s Pastors and Children’s Ministry Leaders from across the state to our 2019 Children’s Leaders Retreat. We are at Spirit of the Smokies Lodge again, and they are honoring the group room rate for the whole week! ($36.98/per night Sun-Thur; $53.83/Fri-Sat night, tax included). Several attendees brought their families or friends as guests to watch the kids during the Retreat sessions. We have one of the smaller meeting rooms adjacent to our large meeting room reserved as a children’s activity room for your kids.
All CLR participants and guests receive our group room rates and Friday night dinner and a show rates. The lodge's water slide, large game room, heated indoor pool, and heated indoor kiddie pool are free and available to all as well! We’ll have a great time of rest and refreshing. Come ready for fun, games, informal meetings, refreshing fellowship, worship, teaching, resource previews, idea exchange, and networking. Dress is casual.

All Christmas lights and décor will still be up, and the after-Christmas sales will be going on, including at the outlet malls! Some will visit Cades Cove and drive through the mountains, others will visit Biltmore, go snow tubing, skiing, ice skating at Ober Gatlinburg, or visiting the shops, restaurants, and rides at The Island or Gatlinburg.
Whether you are a full-time or bi-vocational Children’s Pastor, or a volunteer leading your church’s Children’s Ministry, you are invited! Registration and reservations are open. For accurate counts and preparations, we must have you register with the C.E. office, AND reserve your own room(s) with the Lodge.
