Where can you find speakers?
Your location and size will determine much of the resources available to you. In the “Bible Belt,” it is difficult not to find any number of qualified speakers. But across America, seminaries, Bible colleges, large churches and parachurch ministries may have resources to help you. Network with other local or regional churches, or within your denomination.


Ministry is about people — not programs. And your speaker is key to your retreat’s success.
