CMEP Retreat:

Retreat Theme: Pastoral Care

Dates: May 20-21, 2022

Where: Christian Conference Center

Cost: $50

Join us for a workshop on the basics of Pastoral Care. Intended for both congregational ministers and those seeking to become congregational ministers, we will explore who, when, where, why and how we care for the people in our congregations and ourselves. Through presentation, video, and group discussion we will also explore the ways scripture and theology guide the way that we, as pastors, offer care to others. Come and envision yourself as a pastoral caregiver.


The Reverend Doctors Christine Isham and Kristin Van Heyningen are both ordained Disciples ministers with denominational endorsement as Chaplains. Each has completed a CPE residency and is certification eligible. They have also served as congregational ministers in both rural and urban settings. Currently Christine is a Hospice Chaplain with Gunderson Health Services and Kristin is a Hospice Chaplain with Mayo Clinic Health Services both in La Crosse, WI. They are members of First Christian Church, Minneapolis, MN.

The retreat begins Friday evening after dinner and wraps up mid-late afternoon on Saturday.  The retreat cost includes lodging and breakfast and lunch on Saturday.
