2022 Soul of a Pastor: CRC Retreat

unnamed (22)

PRIVATE TRIP: Soul of a Pastor: CRC Group | July 27–31 | Costilla, New Mexico

The CRC group has teamed with Altar to create a retreat for pastors in their denomination.

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 the support of your congregation, friends, 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).

Tres Cuerdas Lodge & the Rio Grande River

Hosted out of a beautiful rustic hunting lodge in Costilla, NM. Surrounded by amazing views, just sitting on the porch taking it all in is good for the soul. Fishing opportunities range from:
- Fishing the Valle Vidal which is a medium-size tailwater with freestone qualities loaded with Rio Grande cutthroats averaging 8 to 12 inches.
- High Lakes that will take your breath away.
- Fish for rainbow trout 12 to 18 inches on several high mountain lakes
- Hike & take in the views.
- Float fishing the famed Rio Grande river for rainbow trout, brown trout, and smallmouth bass (if weather permits).


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. Special guest, Jason Randall, will provide fly fishing instruction and workshops.
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.
