The 2011-2012 season for Focus Retreats, the Grace Brethren regional retreats for ministry leaders, kicked off last week in Ohio and continues next week in Ocean City, Md.
Today, FGBC conference coordinator, Tom Avey, announced that the retreat has been scheduled in Florida next year after taking a hiatus last year. The South Focus Retreat will be held at the Florida FFA Training Center in Haines City, Fla.

Dan Allan, pastor of the Grace Brethren Church in Ashland, Ohio, is leading the retreats.
Other retreats on the schedule include:
