9/14-16: Pastors' Retreat @ Tall Timber

  • Tall Timber Ranch 27875 White River Rd Leavenworth, WA, 98826 United States (map)

September 14-16, 2015

Tall Timber Ranch

Theme: A Long Obedience; Staying Faithful, Fresh and Full over the long haul

Facilitator:  The Rev. Kimberly Crispeno

We enter our ministries intent upon being faithful servants of Jesus Christ, each of us with a backpack of tools, expectations, and great intentions.  But we quickly find it is not as easy as we hoped to live out what we know, and stay present, engaged, and fresh in our vocations and personal lives.  In our time together, we will explore in our own stories how and why we sabotage ourselves and struggle to practice our values and what we know to be true and needed.

Kimberly grew up on the shores of Flathead Lake in Montana, the daughter of two pastors in a small town Pentecostal church.  Her grandmother, Evelyn Peterson, and her uncles Eugene, and Kenneth Peterson, were also strong pastoral influences in her formative years.  She has lived and seen the church from nearly every angel.

In November of 2014, Kimberly stepped away from a pastoral role at Calvin Presbyterian Church in Shoreline, WA. In order to devote more time to spiritual direction, speaking, writing, art, hospitality and her family.  The mother of three, Kimberly never imagined how much time she’d spend in ice hockey rinks, on soccer fields, or trying to find a healthy balance between vocational ministry and personal life.  She lives in Edmonds, WA. with her husband and family.
