The heart of the three-day weekend is a set of talks called "rollos." Listening to others share stories centered on Christ helps everyone to grow in their own understanding of the holy. The atmosphere is one of joy and Christian fellowship, of learning and listening, of reflection and preparation. Participants return empowered to better serve their church, their community, and the world. Our weekends, which begin on Thursday evening and finish Sunday afternoon, are held twice a year in Pine Valley, in the hills east of San Diego.
