This question is a bit like asking if you know whether the sky is blue. Of course you know a ministry leader couple who could use a retreat specifically designed to encourage them! The Haft, situated in the Northern Poconos, is running just such a retreat for no more than 7 pastor/leader couples on October 2-4, 2012.
I have had a part of developing this retreat format and highly recommend it for anyone who might wish to catch their breath with a few other like-minded couples. Going doesn’t mean you are burned out (though you might be) or that you are on the verge of collapse (though you might be). Going means you want to sustain your ministry trajectory.
Check out the link above to see more information about the location and some great pics of the place. I’ve been there a couple of times and find the buildings and the surrounding countryside very refreshing. Even if you are unable to attend this event, you can work with them to set up your own personal retreat.

Hello, I was wondering if these messages will be available in print form or audio. My husband and I live overseas but would profit from the topics. I have been following your blog for several months and really profitting. Thank you.
Alicia, Thanks for your question. It is a retreat format so there won’t be any messages per se and no recording…sorry. You can look on my “articles” page on this site and find some things I’ve done (PowerPoint slides) re: pastoral renewal that might be beneficial.
