About Event

Join Christian Legal Aid programs from New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia for a time of fellowship, rest, and prayer. Learn and share with fellow volunteers, both attorneys and non-attorneys, about growing in our ability to serve those in need. Come and recharge your passion for justice, gain some practical knowledge, and be spiritually encouraged.

Anyone who is involved - or would like to become involved - with Christian Legal Aid is welcome!

Featured Speaker: Joel S. Woodruff, Ed.D.


Joel is the President of the C.S. Lewis Institute in Springfield, Va., whose mission is to develop disciples of Jesus Christ who will articulate, defend, share, and live their faith in personal and public life. Joel has worked in higher education, "tent-making," nonprofit administration, and pastoral ministries in Alaska, Israel, Hungary, France, and Northern Virginia. He served as Dean of Students, Chaplain, and Professor of Bible & Theology at European Bible Institute. He is a graduate of Wheaton College, earned his M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and has a doctorate in Organizational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University.

Joel will deliver the closing talk at our retreat on Sunday morning.

We currently only have double and triple occupancy rooms available. This means that you will be paying for one spot in one room. CLS will assign you to a room with other people.
