Pastors Renewal Retreats began in Victoria under the leadership of Les Scarborough in 1997. There is now an inter-denominational oversight group who are involved in training and supporting facilitators for these retreats. Tim spent some time with the leadership at their last training retreat on Tuesday and Wednesday this week and reflected with them on training needs and facilitation resources. A new google group site has been set up as a result to share resources and connect facilitators together.
