PTS Thrive partnered with Dr. John Harris, director of Ministerial Development in South Georgia, to conduct a Thrive Retreat for first year pastors at Jekyll Island, Georgia on the weekend of October 25-26, 2019. Six pastoral couples gathered at the Hampton Inn for a weekend of enrichment and rest. Dan Tomberlin, director of PTS Thrive, and Tim Maness, pastoral counselor with the Center for Ministerial Care, were seminar presenters. One participant said, "This was one of the best training sessions I have ever attended. . . I left challenged and healed. I needed this!"
In addtion to the enrichment seminars, the pastoral couples enjoyed private times walking on the beach, fellowship with excellent seafood, and a two hour "Dolphin Tour" around the Georgia islands.
