Who? If you’re a church-planter or prayerfully considering planting a church in or near Vermont, you probably encountered a few challenges along the way. Many of us feel isolated and underequipped- at Vermont Church Planting we want to change that. Our annual Equip Retreat is designed as a place for you, your spouse, and key leaders with your church planting team to . . .
*Expand your vision of what God can accomplish through you.
*Provide handles to help you grow in leadership effectiveness.
* Develop a sense of community with like-minded church planters.
When? February 3-4, 2017. The retreat begins Friday., 6:00 p.m., with dinner, concludes at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, and includes three interactive sessions bookended with praise music and breakout prayer groups.
Where? All sessions along with Friday dinner and Saturday lunch will be hosted at Rutland City Church located in downtown Rutland in the Diamond Mall. We’ve also reserved a block of rooms reserved at the Holiday Inn across the street.

Retreat Speakers: Sean & Billie Spears
In 2002 Sean & Billie Sears planted their lives in the south metro-Boston suburbs where God gave them a burden for their friends and neighbors to follow Jesus. Eleven years ago they started Grace Church- a church which reflects the unique spiritual and ethnic diversity of their neighborhood, hosts three weekend worship services, and has birthed three additional churches in surrounding communities. Sean & Billie have an obvious passion for engaging the lost and developing leaders. This year we're excited to have a Saturday morning session where Sean will meet with the men and Billie will meet with the women.
