Need a Big Sky adventure? 

Photos by John D. PierceBy John Pierce

For those looking for an experience of reflection and renewal and the exploration of fresh places and ideas, let me invite you to NURTURING FAITH EXPERIENCE: MONTANA.   

This “experimental experience” in Big Sky Country, Aug. 18-23, will be a unique retreat opportunity.

While addressing current issues with some bright-minded people, the group also will help shape a model for future events in Montana.

Sponsors (to date) include Baptists Today, Baptist History and Heritage Society, Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of North Carolina and The Pittman Center of Gardner-Webb University. Other sponsor-participants are warmly welcomed.

Programming will make good use of the many talents within the group as well as some leaders in Montana. Initially, 14 spaces have been reserved. Additional persons will be added as long as lodging and transportation are available to us.

 

Friend and colleague Bruce Gourley, who lives in Bozeman and is owner of the popular web site Yellowstone.net, is making great plans and will be our well-informed guide.

Here’s what the schedule looks like:

Monday, August 18

Arrive at the Bozeman, MT airport by 4 pm (earlier if possible). If someone’s flight is delayed, transportation will still be provided.

Each person is responsible for his or her own travel to and from Bozeman. Reservations should be made as soon as possible.

Much time will be spent in the great outdoors with a variety of optional activities.

 

 

To secure a spot, please send a $400 deposit to Baptists Today, P.O. Box 6318, Macon, GA 31208-6318 marked as “NF Montana.”

The balance ($800) will be due June 15.
