The C-Suite Sabbath is a three-day retreat created with the intention to meet the need for devoted time for reflection and prayer of busy CEOs. We encourage those who can, to bring their families to share in the retreat experience. Held the second week in August, CEOs and their families are housed in fully equipped apartments on the North Shore of Massachusetts, in the beautiful rural setting of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary—Hamilton.

During the retreat, CEOs are invited to think deeply on the questions most important to them, pray earnestly at early morning and evening worship services, and take time for unscripted rest, Scripture-based meditation and reflection, and pastoral renewal. CEOs and their family members have free afternoons to enjoy local activities, drive to the seaside or venture into Boston. In addition to chapel, individualized quiet time, and lectures by Gordon-Conwell theologians, local practitioners and pastors, the experience also includes a traditional New England clambake and a Red Sox game.

All meals, events, and lodging are included in the registration fee.


  • Delegates (including room and meals) $1,500 per person
  • Spouses and Children $150 per person
  • Additional Rooms $100 per person
