Join us for our biennial all-church retreat at Mission Springs Conference Center in beautiful Scotts Valley. This will be our 3rd Riverfest - a time for us to gather for inspiration, vision, and connection.
Our guest teacher for the weekend is Dave Schmelzer. Dave is the founding pastor of the Vineyard Christian Fellowship of Greater Boston which has grown to over 1000 attendees by appealing to secularists, not primarily to churched people. He is also the author of several books, most notably, Not the Religious Type: Confessions of a Turncoat Atheist. At Riverfest, Dave will be sharing about the adventure of engaging secularists and secular culture with the amazing goodness of Jesus. Dave is a great communicator and incisive thinker. For all of us who care about how the we can be a blessing in our neighborhoods, workplaces, and friendship networks, Dave has a lot to offer. He is the leader of the Blue Ocean Faith network, a movement of churches seeking to engage secularists in a fresh, different way.
