The East Focus Retreat for Grace Brethren pastors and ministry leaders began this afternoon at Ocean City, Md.
Using the facilities of a local Presbyterian church and basing at the Holiday Inn and Suites in Ocean City, more than 60 men from around the eastern seaboard (and Alaska) have gathered for two days of relaxing and refreshment. Clancy Cruise, pastor of Grace Church, Marysville, Ohio, and executive director of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches, is leading the sessions, which are focusing on the pastor and his family.
Tonight, the men gathered on the boardwalk to sing worship hymns before breaking into smaller groups to discuss matters related to the pastor and his family. An added bonus was being able to watch the the Antares rocket streak across the sky following it’s launch in Virginia.
