Wesley Week

Equipping Wesleyan Leaders
for the Twenty-First Century

Wesley Week is a new, annual event at the Alton L. Collins Retreat Center, designed to provide short-term opportunities for Wesleyan studies for both clergy and laity. The program brings a nationally-known Wesley scholar to the Retreat Center each summer to lead an experience of education, renewal, and spiritual growth.

Each Wesley Week will feature an opportunity for clergy and laity to engage in learning experiences together. The sessions are designed for intensive, stimulating learning opportunities along with ample free time to facilitate fellowship, relaxation, and informal networking. Daily worship in the Wesleyan tradition grounds work and play in the spiritual discipline modeled by John Wesley. The natural beauty of the Collins setting and the gracious hospitality of the staff will allow retreatants to breathe deep and focus on renewal during this unique educational event.

The schedule begins with room check-in at 4:00 pm on the first day, and concludes with lunch on the third day. The cost in 2013 is $200 for double occupancy, or $240 for single occupancy. This includes all meals, lodging, and program costs, as well as full access to the beautiful Collins facilities.

One Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is available at no additional charge. You must indicate your desire for CEU's when registering, and you must be present throughout the entire event. Be sure to select this option on the registration form--click the green button below to register for Wesley Week.
