Faith Today magazine announces a unique contest for Canadian pastors

OTTAWA, Ontario — (CANADIAN CHRISTIAN NEWS SERVICE) — Canadian pastors work very hard in often challenging circumstances. They may not always take the time they need to rest and replenish.EFC Logo

Faith Today, Canada’s Christian magazine published by The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, is partnering with Christian retreat centres across the country to change that for pastors from coast to coast.

In every province and territory, a spiritual retreat centre is opening its doors for one deserving pastor to come and take an expense-free break.

Faith Today invites Canadian congregations to email the name of their hardworking pastor – along with 75 words about why they deserve a break and what a great job they do – to contest@faithtoday.ca.

Pastors who do not win their regional draw (to be held in early March) will receive a social media salute. Every pastor whose name is entered will receive a two-year complimentary subscription to Faith Today.

The contest closes on February 29.

Faith Today is grateful to these retreat centres partnering with us for this contest:

The fine print: Retreat times to be arranged between the guest and the retreat centre. If desired, the pastor may bring a spouse, child or friend to share the experience. Travel costs to be covered by the pastor, or better yet, their church. Some retreat centres provide meals, others do not. Churches may wish to send their pastor with a meal stipend to really make things nice. If pastors prefer, they may choose a $100 gift card instead of the retreat prize. Maybe a nice dinner out?
