Needing a time of rest, connection, and rejuvenation? Get away for a few days and join us at the Semiahmoo Resort & Spa in Blaine, Washington for our annual Clergy Retreat and Conference, April 28 – May 1. Take advantage of the many workshop offerings, enjoy retreat time exploring the environs of this waterfront resort, or a little of both. Conference is open to clergy and their families.

  • Late registrations will be accepted based on hotel capacity at prevailing rates; any increase in lodging cost due to late registration will be the responsibility of the individual.
  • Request for additional nights pre- or post-conference will be accepted based on hotel capacity at prevailing rates in the same category of room as selected during registration; cost due for extra nights will be the responsibility of the individual paid directly to the hotel at check out.

Some scholarships are available, however, we are asking that you make every effort to have your congregation pay this very minimal fee. We have greatly subsidized this conference so that the cost to you and your congregations can be kept low. Please contact Bishop Rickel at to make a request.
