Who We are

Servant Staff

"But Jesus called them to Himself and said,

You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them,

and their great men exercise authority over them.

It is not this way among you,

but whoever wishes to become great among you

shall be your servant,

and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave;

just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve,

and to give His life a ransom for many.'"

(Matthew 20:25-28)

The Be Still Retreat is dedicated to recruiting and training BSR

Servant Staff who are disciplined in their own devotional life, believe that it is more blessed to give than to receive, and demonstrate humility, servanthood, compassionate grace, teamwork spirit and going the extra mile for all those who come to "be still and know God.”

Prerequisites for becoming part of the BSR Servant Staff is to belong to a local Christian community, attend a Be Still Retreat and be a dependable and reliable servant of Jesus Christ. This role is critical in the function of the Be Still Retreat and although much of what you will do only Christ sees, it is beneficial to the

entire group and makes a Be Still Retreat different than any other retreat.

BSR Servant Staff consist of many hands and hearts who are dedicated

to serve Christ through ministering to others. We hope to reclaim the

Biblical purpose of ‘ retreat.’ We “retreat” in order to advance,

spiritually speaking. Throughout the Scripture, someone who “retreated

with the Lord” came back changed! Time alone with the Lord transformed

them! The BSR Servant Staff pray and prepare all year long to enjoy the

pleasure of experiencing and helping others to retreat with the Lord.

We strive to “cross-train” the BSR Servant Staff so they are

available for multiple tasks and multiple sites. Wherever there is a Be

Still Retreat, you can know that the BSR Servant Staff will be there to

greet you, assist you, serve you and work behind the scenes to make

your retreat experience soul-satisfying. We like to think that the

Servant Staff are the “angels” of the camp and part of the “great cloud

of witnesses” that surround you while you retreat with the Lord!

If you would like to become a part of the BSR Servant Staff, contact us on our web site ( or on facebook (Be Still Retreat).

Join others in Christ who have already experienced a Be Still

Retreat, believe in its purpose, support those who come and encourage

new participants each year. Only those who have already attended a Be

Still Retreat will be allowed to apply for BSR Servant Staff. All

applications will be collected on site at the BSR Registration table or

you may mail your application to:
