This special event at the Wesley Center focuses on Deepening Faith/Igniting Ministry (Living the Great Commandment) and is sponsored by the Board of Laity and Discipleship Team of the Louisiana Annual Conference.

Prayerfully consider joining us as we explore our spiritual journey and reflect on our life together in Christ. You may register your attendance by going to Friday night is optional, but it is highly recommended that you include it in your schedule as it will give you ample time to settle in and the opportunity to experience the classical spiritual practice lectio divina/divine reading of scripture. You do not want to miss the Saturday sessions led by three of our own certified Spiritual Formation Directors, Cherri Johnson, Cindy Mann and Bob Leitner. 

Bring your Bible. There is no fee to attend; all materials will be provided. All that is required is your Love for Christ and your desire to grow in grace. 

If you plan to stay at the Wesley Center Friday night, please make your reservation and payment for lodging and meals directly to the Wesley center or by calling (318)449-4500. For more information go to or contact Rhonda Whitley (225-346-1646) or Cherri Johnson (225-383-4777 ext. 249)

Join us for this life-giving retreat as we grow in wisdom, knowledge and understanding of God’s amazing love. When we made our professions of faith, we promised to be Christ’s disciples in the world. This retreat will give you and others tools for the journey and the opportunity to deepen your faith and ignite ministry in your congregation. 

  Be Welcomed. Be Loved.

We are a Christian community called to share our gifts through worship, witness and service so that others will know God and become disciples of Jesus Christ.
