Urban Pros Retreat square


The 2014 NW Urban Professionals Spring Retreat is on! April 25-27 are the dates. Plan to have an unforgettable weekend of inspiration, reflection and growth. It’s a time to deepen friendships and meet new people.

Semiahmoo Resort is an amazing waterfront setting on the border of Washington and Canada. Located on the Semiahmoo Spit, the 212-room Semiahmoo Resort features a pool, full-service spa, fitness center, multiple and diverse restaurants and two challenging and highly acknowledged public golf courses.

Price: $50.00 (includes registration, Sat. lunch, Sun. breakfast) and we’re reserving a block of rooms. (You’ll be in charge of paying for your room and any room charges.)

Plan to go up Friday if you can, but the schedule begins with a catered lunch on Saturday at noon with classes following. And we’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the resort’s amenities. Invite your friends. Hold these dates for a super fun time. This is an I-5 corridor event.

You can plan to stay at the resort in your own room or talk to your friends and plan to share a room with one to three people in order to save money. To book a room at a group discount call 360-318-2000 or 855-917-3767 and let them know you are with our NW Urban Professionals Retreat and if you want a single, double, triple or quad room and the names of your pre-arranged roommates. Discounted room rates are from $105-$159.

The Spokane Christian Church, located in eastern Washington state (photos), is currently accepting applications for both our summer internship program as well as our One Year Challenge program.

This internship is a great opportunity to serve and experience working at all levels of ministry while working alongside two evangelists and their wives (Chris & Amy Schwartzenberger, Mark & Annie McCune), campus ministers (Carl and Stephanie Sullivan), as well as a deacon of worship (Andrew Cook).

As an intern you will receive one-on-one training in the following areas of leadership:

  • Outreach – This will include sharing your faith on campus, learning to lead Bible studies more effectively and leading discussion groups at Eastern Washington University, home of the RED turf known as the Inferno, and other local colleges.

  • Preaching and Teaching - You will be trained by your mentor in how to deliver a message effectively by learning how to prepare, deliver and respond to a lesson.

  • Mission Team Support – You will be used to also help share in a mission church that was planted in 2012.

  • Event Planning and Execution – Each intern will be assigned to lead different campus, teen and youth activities including running a Vacation Bible School.

  • Specialty Ministry Experience – Each intern will work alongside our deacon of worship to learn how to integrate singing, prayer and other worship elements to help people connect with God. This will also include learning to use technology in a powerful and effective way for advancing your ministry

The goal of this "incREDible internship" is to develop a well-rounded ministry experience for the intern while providing valuable manpower to the church. While learning these different aspects of ministry you will also get to experience the great NW and all it’s outdoor beauty and amenities!

We are looking for summer interns and 2 One Year Challenge interns. Each position will come with a monthly stipend and lodging. Travel to and from Spokane will be the responsibility of the intern. (Having a car is a huge bonus.)

All interns will be serving in our summer program. The One Year Challenge will continue in training for the year.

Please email Stephanie Sullivan for more information and an application. All applications are due by March 28 and interns will be selected by April 15.
