Join us at the Chateau for these upcoming events:


February 9-11   IF: Northeastern France, Women’s Weekend

What IF we followed God with perseverance instead of insecurity? At IF:Gathering 2018, we will look at one of Paul’s letters to Timothy as he reminded him of the power and responsibility of sharing the gospel. We want to give God away in the very places He’s put us, so we’re going to gather for the purpose of remembering why following God and making disciples matters. We all get tired, we all wonder if what we’re doing matters, so IF:Gathering 2018 will be the reminder–it will be the celebration. The work we’re doing to share the gospel on the earth is worth it and God DOES move through the little things that nobody sees. Join us at Chateau ClaireFontaine in the beautiful French countryside for a weekend of focus and fellowship. We are easily accessible to most of Western Europe, so guests are welcome to join us from wherever you call home. We have limited space available for those wishing to reserve a room at the chateau, so please RSVP as soon as possible, and note whether you are willing to share a room with a friend. If you’d prefer to stay on your own, we would be happy to recommend a few local places for your visit. Register HERE.


March 23-24   Counseling Skills for Church Leaders Workshop

Do you find yourself frustrated by people’s responses to your attempts to help them?  Do you struggle with being an effective peacemaker?  Do you find yourself worn out from helping others?

This workshop will teach skills necessary to help people to change.  In addition to basic counseling skills, this event will focus on managing conflict and protecting the church leader from the emotional fall-out inherent in attempting to help people change their life. Lead by licensed family therapists, Alan and Sherry Pogue, you’ll go home with practical skills you can begin using immediately in your ministry.

$150/person.  Limited space available, so REGISTER NOW.
