2022 Soul of a Pastor Retreat


Soul of a Pastor | June 29–July 3 | Buena Vista, CO

Pastors give so much to others, but often neglect many components of their own life. Pastors today are fatigued, burned out, struggling at home, and often pastor from a place of emptiness. Altar is changing this story by investing into the souls of pastors because their life and leadership impacts everything from their own well-being, to their families, to the church, and beyond.

Through support from your congregation, friends or personal network combined with Altar's own support efforts, we desire to fully bless pastors by covering their retreat costs and follow up life, soul and leadership coaching for a greater life and ministry ($3000/Pastor for both retreat and customized coaching).

Frontier Ranch & the Arkansas River

The Frontier Ranch's spacious lodge with enclosed fire pit and ample gathering space features a majestic Rocky Mountain view that will set the scene for our time together. Float fishing and wading on the gold medal waters of the Arkansas River for brown and rainbow trout and hiking to an alpine lake above 12,000 ft elevation for cutthroats are just a few of the adventures that await.


Our Soul of a Pastor Retreat Includes: 4 nights/3 days lodging, all meals, fishing gear (if needed), guide fees and tips. Your retreat features spiritual retreat materials and teaching sessions with Altar Founder, Eric Camfield, designed uniquely for pastors providing ample space for reflections, discussions, and rest. As a follow up to each trip, we encourage pastors to continue with soul care and transformational coaching to help the good work of God take root in their lives.
Note: All skill levels are welcome.

How are Pastors funded for an Altar Retreat?

The total cost of a retreat and follow-up coaching is approx. $3,000 per pastor.
We invent in the things we care deeply about and pastors are at the top of the list. While Altar offsets most of the cost for our pastor retreats, we believe it is important for each Pastor's community...friends, family, church/denomination and personal network to join us in this investment into their pastor's health and soul care as an expression of their love.
A $100 deposit is required to hold a spot on a retreat with a suggested $1,000 fundraising goal.
100% of these funds raised go towards the pastor retreat and coaching.
