Ministry Family Retreat (MFR)
Ministry Family Retreat is the signature event for Arctic Barnabas Ministries. This annual retreat is hosted by ABM and designed specifically for strengthening and encouraging pastor and missionary families in order to effectively advance the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout Alaska, Canada, and Far East Russia. This retreat provides an opportunity for fellowship and connection with other ministry families, as well as to encourage them in God’s Word.
With the changes to the world and the challenges of organizing a large gathering, the Arctic Barnabas Ministries leadership has recommended changing the format for MFR 2021 to Refresh 2021, a Kenai based retreat held each week in September and October for one to three families. We will customize these smaller groups to the needs of their families, offering a unique retreat experience.
For those ministry families unable to attend these mini retreats we have established a Refresh in a Box. This will be filled with quality teaching material, worship music, and family-oriented activities.
