About this Event


Missouri District Fall Retreat is designed specifically for Ministry Families.  It's focus is to promote the spiritual, physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of every attendee.  We desire to provide helpful tools and support to strengthen ministries, marriages and the family.  We want everyone to leave encouraged and empowered.  

This year's Retreat features the Ministry of Jerry and Phyllis Jones. Jerry Jones is the former General Secretary of the UPCI and currently serves as the Assistant Professor of Theological and Pastoral Studies at Urshan Graduate School of Theology. Jerry and Phyllis Jones understand the challenges ministry families face. They bring to us much wisdom born out of experience guaranteed to encourage and enrigh all thoese who attend. Jerry Jones is a scholar, orator and friend to preachers. Phyllis Jones is a woman of gentle grace, compassion and strength. 

Come and unwind, relax and connect with others from across our district who share in the work of ministry and need the gift of your fellowship now more than ever!  No need to pack a suit and tie, because dress is casual!  And for all those with children, child care will once again be provided by Nanny's 2 U, a local licensed daycare at no cost to you 30 minutes before until 30 minutes after each Retreat Session. We are hoping the pandemic will no longer be a concern by then, but have made preparations to protect everyone's safety should it continue. We can't wait to be together once again!!!!

If you have any questions concerning this event please call the District Office at (314) 831-0707 or email us at  We hope to see you there!
