Welcome to the Fall 2016 Cluster Retreats!

In the Fall and Spring, all internship supervisors and pastoral interns around the country are hosted by the nearest ELCA seminary for a special cluster event. Luther Seminary facilitates the retreats for Region 1 and Region 3, and we are thrilled to share the dates and locations for the Fall 2016 cluster retreats.

"It was refreshing to be in room full of classmates and to learn and share together again. Being able to observe the level of learning and growth in my classmates over the course of their internships was both inspiring and encouraging for me." - 2015-2016 pastoral intern

Fun at the Region 1 Spring 2016 cluster retreat

At the cluster retreats, the pastoral interns and supervising pastors gather for worship, learning, conversation, fellowship, and the opportunity to learn from other partners in the internship experience from across the country!
