      Leading a committee or ministry team in the local church requires time and effort, along with skills related to your specific ministry area.  For those leading committees, working on ministry teams, and striving to strengthen your local church’s work, Mary Scifres Ministries is pleased to present this day of training for church leaders, “Missional Leadership.”

     San Diego District Superintendent Myron Wingfield will energize our day as we begin with a book study keynote address based on Gil Rendle’s “Journey in the Wilderness.” Workshop leader Mary  Scifres, along with Myron, will enrich and strengthen our leadership skills as they offer practical tools for organizing and leading church committees, adhering to denominational guidelines, and strengthening your ministry teams for maximum fulfillment of your ministry hopes and dreams.

     Top of the World Retreat is Mary’s home in Laguna Beach.  Located on both Shady Lane and Top of the World Drive, this multi-level home includes view- and garden-retreat-decks for your enjoyment.  Workshops take place in the spacious living area, and lunch is served in the adjacent dining room, with seating both outside and in. 

     Top of the World Retreat Home offers comfortable space and time to learn, reflect, and retreat.  Situated above the Laguna Wilderness Canyon, this sacred space provides lovely vistas and a quiet place for conversation, contemplation, and education.  Brunch includes fruit, nuts, and pastries, available all morning long.  Light snacks, coffee, tea, and filtered water will be available as well.

     Come early or stay late to walk the nearby park or canyon paths or stroll through the Old Top of the World neighborhood.  Just down the hill, enjoy the quaint ambiance and lovely beaches of Laguna, complete with two public paved trails, dozens of beach accesses, five city parks, and one county park.  Art galleries, shops, restaurants, and hotels abound in Laguna Beach.  
Located in the heart of southern California, Laguna can be the starting point for a fun family vacation or a relaxing retreat.  Fly into nearby Orange County Airport (SNA) and arrive in Laguna in less than half an hour.  Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm are only 30 minutes away, Legoland only 45 minutes away, and the sights of either San Diego or L.A./Hollywood are within 70 miles.  Click here for Laguna Beach lodging and recreation information.  

     As always, private or group coaching sessions are available on Friday evening before the event or Saturday afternoon after the event.  Contact Mary for more details.
