On October 16-20, Grace Place Wellness Ministries traveled to Florida for the first time. Eighteen church workers from the Florida-Georgia District, LCMS relaxed, reinvigorated and learned important preventative strategies involving all aspects of health and wellness. The retreat was led by Rev. Dr. Darrell Zimmerman, VP of Programming. The devotional leader for the week was Florida-Georgia District President Greg Walton. The retreat was held at the Lido Beach Holiday Inn in Sarasota and the response by participants was tremendous. Special thanks to the LCMS Office of National Mission and the Marco Lutheran Church Foundation, along with other donors, for making this inaugural event to so successful!
