r2A will be a SMALL gathering (limit 20) of preteen ministry leaders, entering into God’s rest and preparing for the ministry season ahead.

r2A will help you define/refine YOUR unique, God-given Driving Purpose.

r2A will equip you to communicate what your ministry is all about, as an outflowing of who God created you to be:

  • to preteens
  • to parents
  • to volunteers
  • to your pastoral staff

r2A will cost $149 for an individual OR $298 for a group. With ONE registration ($298), you can bring up to FOUR people from your preteen ministry. This price includes dinner on Tuesday and Wednesday, and lunch on Wednesday. Lodging is not included.  We suggest The Holiday Inn Express located just down the street from the church/retreat center.

r2A will be facilitated by Sean Sweet, Community Director of FourFiveSix.org.

r2A will be a defining moment in your ministry. Don’t miss it.
