A joint church leaders’ event (a theological oasis):
Rostered leaders, professional lay church staff, youth leaders, church administrators, office managers, outdoor ministry leaders, worship leaders… ALL are welcome!
Once again, this fall, we invite you to be with us in the desert for our annual Theoasis event. Theoasis is a joint church leaders’ event (a theological oasis) for Rostered leaders, professional lay church staff, youth leaders, church administrators, office managers, outdoor ministry leaders, worship leaders… ALL are welcome!
In response to feedback received from prior year participants, the timing of this year’s Theoasis will be slightly different than in the past. Programming will begin on Tuesday, October 17 and conclude by noon on Thursday, October 19. We will once again be at the Embassy Suites, La Quinta. Please save these dates on your calendar now!
A Planning Team of leaders from both synods is currently being formed and will begin its work to envision and plan this year’s event. More information will be shared on this page as it becomes available. Look for registration to open this summer. We hope you can join us!
DONATE NOW TO PROVIDE SCHOLARSHIPS!
Thanks to a generous gift from St. Peter’s by the Sea Lutheran in San Diego, we have established a Theoasis Scholarship Fund. This fund will be used to assist Rostered leaders with some of the costs (registration fees and housing) of attending this event, held in October. Many of our Rostered leaders are not provided with budgeted funds to attend this annual event which provides much-needed theological education, fellowship, renewal, and support.
Congregations and individuals are encouraged to donate to this fund to increase the impact of these scholarships across our synod. You may do so online HERE and choosing the Theoasis Scholarships option. You may also donate by check, payable to the Pacifica Synod, and mailed to the synod office (1801 Park Court Place, Bldg. C, Santa Ana, CA 92701). Be sure to note “Theoasis Scholarships” in the memo line of your check.
While donations will be gratefully accepted at ANY time throughout the year, to provide the greatest impact for those attending this year’s Theoasis event, we encourage you to make your donations by July 1, 2023. Thank you in advance for your support.
Theoasis takes place at the Embassy Suites, La Quinta (not Palm Desert), located at 50-777 Santa Rosa Plaza, La Quinta. Hotel reservations must be made directly with the hotel. You may reserve a room online through the hotel’s website or by phone by calling 760.777.1711.
For registration and other questions about this event, please contact Terri Robertson at 714.692.2791, Ext. 732 or by email at email@example.com.
