Ask them to start praying the week of the retreat (for your preparation and time management) and then to pray through to the Monday following the retreat. Especially ask them to pray for physical, emotional and spiritual health and stamina.
  • You are welcome to have your prayer partners sign up to be a retreat intercessor. They will receive high level prayer needs via email throughout the weekend.
  • Fasting and Prayer. We invite you to pray for your weekend and fast if you feel led. The retreat team will be fasting together on Tuesday prior to the retreat. We will give you more information at the Team Meeting on this.

Retreat Need to Knows

Preparing YOUR Story: 

  • Write/Type out your story prior to the retreat and practice telling it
  • Partners (4-5 minutes max); Not Partners (2-3 minutes max)
  • Remember we are all familiar with betrayal and the loss of trust in some relationship, and we have all received healing and restoration from the Father. This is the heart of the story you want to communicate.



Please take the time to reach out to your buddy at least one time prior to the retreat. Send them an email first inviting them to a phone call. Connecting by phone is ideal, but we want them to have the ability to connect in a way that feels safe. The purpose of this connection is to help combat the participant’s fear of not knowing anyone, to answer questions, and to help them feel welcomed. You may be working with your buddy during the retreat so please do not hesitate to ask them what you can be praying for as we all prepare. 

 

  • Please share those prayer requests with the Intercession Team via email. Please send to the Lead Intercessor. 

     

  • Please also ensure that they have received their retreat emails and that they do not have any questions. Any questions that might arise please direct to Julie Palmer at assistant@hoperedefined.org 636-577-5284 or LyschelBurket@hoperedefined.org or 865-223-4396 or . Most retreat information is sent 30 days pre-retreat.

     

  • Please communicate any retreat logistics or special considerations they might need to Lyschel or Julie. Be sure to ask them about food allergies or needs for sleeping comfortably.

     

  • If your buddy is traveling they will need to send their itinerary to Retreat Coordinator so that we are aware of their arrival/departure. We are offering ground transportation to those who arrive during a certain window of time If they are not able to arrive during the window of time then ground transportation will be their responsibility. Uber is an option from the airport to the Wayfloy office. Please remind them to send their travel dates if they have not already. 

We have laid out the things that are essential in building a healthy functioning ministry team. Please review our Retreat Team Values & Protocols 

Redeemed Hope Ministry Values & Protocols 

You have these prayers in your Team Member packet but we want to make sure you can find them if you need them.

A part of what we get to do at this retreat is offer validation AND freedom. Deliverance is the action of being rescued and set free. 

Here is our teaching on this topic for our retreat team.  Protocols for Deliverance Ministry
