Event description


In the Kingdom of Heaven every single person has a special place in the body of Christ. How can we make sure that every part of the body gets to participate fully?

Has your church or community encountered folks who have needs that challenged full participation?

Do you have kids or the elderly that need extra consideration?

Would you like to dialogue with others on how to make your church or community more engaging for folks that end up on the margins of life?

We will be addressing these questions and more at the New Wine, New Wineskins ( annual retreat at Cannon Beach Conference Center this year! We are excited to announce our theme is From Isolation to Inclusion: A Retreat on Disabilities. We started the discussion about disabilities and the church at our Annual Conference this Spring. Our desire to further the discussion and relationships we started earlier this year. We hope to move from isolation to inclusion to full participation by providing churches and individuals the opportunity to reflect on structures in the church and biases in our own hearts concerning people with disabilities that hinder full participation in Christ’s church. Please join us for times of biblical reflection, interactive experiences, and discussion.

But in addition to our theme this year, this is a time where people who have partnered with us in the past, are partnered with us now, or are interested in seeing what we are about can get together, relax, fellowship, and have some great discussions at the beautiful Oregon coast!

Not all of us can always keep in touch or be together, that is why we feel our annual retreats are so important. We want to hear about how you are doing, things you are concerned about, and how we can pray for you. We also would love to update you about what is going on at New Wine as well. More than ever, our world needs relational bridges built through Jesus Christ, and that is what we are all about. We hope you can join us as we are all refreshed and renewed, and as we strategize, pray, and joyfully face the next year in the life of New Wine, New Wineskins!

We are excited to announce that due to generous scholarships provided by Multnomah University Student Life and others, reduced pricing is available for Multnomah University students and alumni.
