How to get there


“Accelerate!” is a small group strategic planning workshop for small group ministry point people and their leadership team. These powerful sessions will be taught by Saddleback Pastor Steve Gladen and other Saddleback small group pastors July 10 – July 12 at the Rancho Capistrano Retreat Center in San Juan Capistrano, California.

You and your team will take a 360-degree view of your small group ministry as you develop a comprehensive strategic action plan for 2017 – 2018. This workshop not only gives you stimulating ideas, you’ll leave with a plan that you can begin to implement immediately.

Check-in/Registration is from 2:00pm – 5:00pm on Monday, July 10. (Please do not plan to arrive early; rooms will not be available until after 2:00pm.)

Dinner on Monday will begin at 5:00pm with the Opening Session beginning promptly at 6:30pm. The Final Session will end at 5:00pm on Wednesday. We invite you to spend your final night at the Retreat Center so you can relax and reflect on everything you’ve learned at Accelerate! You can enjoy breakfast Thursday morning with check-out no later than noon on Thursday.

Attendance is limited to give you more interaction with instructors and with teams from other churches.

Registration includes your lodging and all meals, plus two essential books on small group ministry. These books will be sent to you once you register and must be read before attending the workshop. You cover your personal travel expenses to and from the Rancho Capistrano Retreat Center.

Price is per person based on double occupancy (no single rooms available). A roommate request will be sent to you prior to the event.

Registration ends on Friday, July 7, 2017. Walk in registrations are not available.

Cancellation Policy: $75 per person cancellation fee. Non-refundable after June 24, 2017
