Family Church

Pastor Phil Derstine invites you to attend one of the services at the The Family Church at Christian Retreat if you reside or are in the Bradenton, Florida area.  Our service times are Wednesday at 7:00pm and Sunday at 10:00am.  The  Sunday morning services are live streamed.  Our cyber church family can view the services online, access sermon notes and chat live with our cyber church pastor as well as receive live prayer.

The Family Church at Christian Retreat is passionate about family, God’s Family, and helping you find your place in it. Here you’ll find freedom of worship and a passion for the presence of God. You’ll also find friendship and a place to belong. it’s our desire that you and your family would reach God’s highest purpose and potential for your lives through personal encounter with God, systematic Bible study and genuine Christian fellowship. Christian Retreat was birthed in the Spirit of revival and established by sovereign miracles of God.

Today, the same demonstration of power is building strong children, extraordinary youth, healthy singles, refined seniors and dynamic Christian families. With a heart for missions, here at home and for the nations, we’re fulfilling Christ’s command, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel.” If you’re looking for a place to call “home,” then we say “Welcome to the Family!”

Phil Derstine, Pastor

  1. Purpose for Life is one of my favorite books! I have gifted my sons, grandsons, brother and sister with one for their households. A great way for a family to draw closer to the Lord even though we are apart we stay connected daily in prayer. As I am away for a season ministering to my family I am so happy to view the Sunday services on the Internet…that way I don’t get too homesick and get to see you all! Shalom and Blessings, Vicki Walker

  2. Dear Pastors
    Phil and Jeanette,

    I thank GOD for sending us to Christian Retreat. I have been in relationship
    (with GOD) for many years, but have never been so close to The Spirit. The Church has brougt me to a level that I have never known before. The “GOD EXPERIENCE’ was so all consuming in CHRIST that my seeking has escalated since then. Pastor Brenda was such a blessing as the leader and the guides were so in tune to the needs of each and every one of us. I felt the Presence of GOD jn their kind ministering.
    Thanks You all you do,
    Jean Nassy
