Participate in the Redwoods Pastors Retreat

Dates to be announced...

This special men's retreat is for full-time Pastor’s and Para-church Ministers to come and obtain support, find rest, receive care, and be encouraged. It will be a place for you to be a man among men and do your work in a safe environment. Last year’s retreat was awesome and we invite you to come and experience this life-giving week with other initiated ministers. Spread the word to those you know serving in ministry to be a part of this special gathering.

The cost is $250 which includes lodging, food and supplies. Register now so we can plan for your attendance. For more information, contact Andy Spell, Tim Rush, Ryan Porter or Brent Johnson.


Join a Redwood “Pastors Only” Group

We are starting two new groups for Pastors who would like a place to do your work, where you are allowed to be your authentic self, and in a place that is set apart from those you lead.

Both groups will meet on every other Wednesday, beginning August 10th and ending November 16th.  Group one will meet from 6:00-7:30 AM Central Time Zone. Contact Andy Spell or Brent Johnson. Group two will meet from 5:00-6:30 AM Pacific Time Zone. Contact Ryan Porter.

There are no fees for these groups.

“The pastors in this group helped me process things that others would never understand.  A safe place that I could just be me, nothing more. No pastor hat just a man among other men.”   -Brent in Chicago

“The Crucible Pastor's Group was the safe community I was missing. I never thought a zoom call could have such a profound impact on my life and walk with Jesus.  It was well worth waking at 3:30am to join twice a month” - Ryan in Seattle

Mid-Week Initial Retreat 

So many church staff struggle to give up a weekend while in full time ministry. Will you prayerfully consider staffing a midweek weekend. Staff will arrive on Sunday night, serve pastors from across the country as they experience radical honesty and grace, and leave the afternoon of Wednesday, full and blessed.

New Resource for Those You Lead

When a challenging church member or a church leader is struggling, Crucible now has a suite of resources you can place in their hands.  My Journey To is an online app that has an assessment, pre-recorded soul work experience library available to supplement any pastoral care or counseling you might be providing.  Membership is free to you and everyone you refer.
