Recharge Chesapeake


Exponential Potential

Our churches have explosive possibilities when we follow God’s blueprint for reaching our communities. Evangelism brings revival, new birth, and joy to the heart of God and those participating as nothing else can! The twelve disciples were called by Jesus to “come aside and rest awhile” while He taught them His model for ministry and mission. ReCharge is a similar invitation today to come aside to a quiet place and gain practical tools and Biblical soul-winning methods from experienced pastors and evangelists. God will equip you to tackle the Great Commission in the territory He has called you to win for Him! Join us as we experience the power of the Holy Spirit during this time of rest, renewal, and ReCharge!

Who should come? Conference Leaders, Pastors, Local Elders, Personal Ministry Leaders, lay leaders, and church members! We encourage multiple people from one church to attend to make the largest impact when going home. Therefore, we have given large registration discounts for groups from the same church or church district.

The 2022 ReCharge retreat will be held December 9-11. The schedule will be Friday evening through Sunday noon.

Deadline to register is December 5, 2022
