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
