2021 Superintendent Summit and Retreat

March 14-16, 2021

Fort Walton Beach, FL

“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” – Proverbs 29:18

Join us for a unique opportunity for prayer, relaxation, profitable discussion, and fellowship with like-minded superintendents.

This year, in order to facilitate an in-person event and keep this group growing, we have pulled together a bit shorter gathering and followed everyone’s call for a retreat component this year. We are grateful to Fr. Belmonte for joining us as the retreat master. In addition, there are some large, pressing items to discuss as superintendents in these fast changing times. See tentative program for topics.

Airport info: closest, Destin/Fort Walton Beach, VSP; Pensacola’s PNS Also works, but is a bit further away, so allow for extra travel.

See below for hotel information.
