Clergy & Spouse Retreat at Mo-Ranch

We are excited to hold our annual Clergy and Spouse Retreat at the beautiful

Mo-Ranch in Hunt, Texas


October 1-4, 2023

This event is the first of its kind for us. It is semi-inclusive meaning it will be held completely at Mo-Ranch with all meals, lodging and transportation to the ranch from the San Antonio Airport (SAT) included in your registration fee. Archbishop Foley Beach and Rev. David Pileggi will be our guest speakers. With breath-taking views and amazing guest speakers this is an event you are not going to want to miss!

Special optional activities (zip-lining, rock climbing, and more) are available at an additional cost at the venue during this event.


*Airfare to/from San Antonio International Airport (SAT) is the guests responsibility. Should you choose to forego the free shuttle, car rentals will then be the guests responsibility.

If you would like to stay at Mo-Ranch for additional days before or after the Clergy and Spouse Retreat, please contact Brenda Dobbs

A Note from Bishop Julian

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I am so much looking forward to having you join Brenda and me at the clergy and spouse retreat, 2023. It will be an immense privilege for me to introduce to you, two significant people who have strongly influenced my own ministry. Archbishop Foley Beach and the Rev. David Pileggi are some of the most significant Christian leaders that I know. This retreat gives you the opportunity to spend real time with these servant leaders and with each other. I want you to attend, not because attendance is required for all licensed clergy, but because having you there is important to me and builds our fellowship with each other.

In Him,

Bishop Julian Dobbs
