Selah Retreat

Enter into the Father's Joy

28 - 30 March

Entering into the Father’s joy is an act of faith in God’s goodness for us. Balancing life and ministry is already difficult. To succumb to their pressure and weight renders us weak, vulnerable, and impoverished. This retreat will allow us to come into our Father’s presence, know His heart, abide in Him, and experience a time of refreshing and joy. Music ministers, church leaders, and church musicians are heartily invited to come and learn from each other through God’s Word, songs of our faith, spiritual insights, and musical knowledge from key leaders in Asia and the United States.
