Thank you, our Christian Retreat family, for your outpouring of love, prayers and support since the passing in February of our beloved founder and leader, Gerald Derstine.


We are humbled by your kind words and know how much he meant to so many of you. We would like to invite you to join the Derstine family for a special “Celebration of Life” on March 27, 2022, beginning at 12 noon in the sanctuary at Christian Retreat, Bradenton, Florida. Come help us honor this great general of the faith!
