“It has been a great joy for me to have served for these past five years as the Executive Director of Taconic. During these years, thousands of guests have come to Taconic and experienced retreat, rest, and renewal. God has greatly blessed this ministry and significant ministry partnerships have been developed and deepened. Randy Prentiss has worked side by side with me for the past four years and his service to God and Taconic has been extraordinary.
The time has come for me to accept a new call and this involves moving back to Massachusetts to live with my wife and family. So I am grateful and pleased to announce that Randy has accepted a promotion to serve as the Interim Director here at Taconic. I have agreed to continue to serve as an advisor to Randy and to the Taconic Board of Directors. Our Taconic staff have great faith and confidence in Randy’s leadership and he is uniquely qualified for the journey ahead. Please join me in prayer for Randy and for the rest of the Taconic team as we embrace this time of transition.” - Paul Bowen
“As I move into this position, I am aware of the strengthened foundation that I am inheriting. In his years as Executive Director, Paul has rebuilt the foundation of the Taconic Retreat Center. This rebuilding has improved our facilities, guest relations, reputation with our Town and other local partners, as well as our partnership with the Metro New York District churches. Not the least of these improvements is our staff. We have a great team, we work well together, and we serve our guests well. With these pieces in place, and with these people, I look forward to moving Taconic into a future that serves God, the church and the community, with excellence and effectiveness.” - Randy Prentiss

The Taconic Renewal Men's Retreat is an opportunity to get away with other guys for rest, renewal and retreat. We will do this by worshipping, learning, laughing, playing (basketball, ultimate Frisbee, football, kan-jam, hiking, and whatever you bring) and being away together. Guys need a break. Guys need to get away. Guys need God. Guys need each
other. It's a good thing.
Join us for a one day retreat that takes discipleship beyond head knowledge into Christ-like transformation. By integrating scripture, spiritual practices and self-knowledge, participants will discover healthy practices for discipleship that equip them to love God, love themselves, and love others.
