What you'll learn

At Well-Being Retreat, you will

  • increase your understanding of the value of living a whole and balanced life;
  • develop/refine strategies and practices to thrive in your daily life;
  • gain knowledge on topics you choose; and
  • renew your relationship with God, God's creation, and God's claim on your life.

Who should attend

Active and retired members of the Benefits Plan of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) — including ministers, employees, spouses, and surviving spouses — are welcome.

This annual gathering is an opportunity to participate in worship, fellowship, learning, and reflection. Each retreat centers on a different theme, always related to wholeness.

For all participants, Well-Being Retreat offers time away from the usual routines to think, breathe, and renew. It is also an opportunity for ministers to recall and renew their CREDO rules of life and other learnings.


Registration for Well-Being Retreat 2023 will open the week of June 12. Look for registration details on this page closer to the event.


These events are offered at no cost to all Benefits Plan members, including active and retired members and their spouses or surviving spouses. There is no fee to register for Well-Being Retreat 2023; however, payment for lodging and a nominal meal fee must be made at the time of registration.

Board University recognizes the value of in-person participation in the Well-Being Retreat and is also mindful that, for a number of members, the costs associated with travel and lodging are prohibitive. With this in mind, a limited number of scholarships are available for the Well-Being Retreat. Additional information and application forms will be available at registration.

“This event … [is] one of the best I have ever attended. It not only helped me with some of my own stuff , it gave me some great ideas to bring back to the local church. I can’t stress enough the importance of the workshops for self-care and for church care, a good balance of both.”
