As I reported in March 2016: From posts on their own social media pages – Calvary Chapel pastor Holland Davis (CC San Clemente) and his friends in the “Pastors Together” group appear to have been involved with ecumenical and contemplative activities for years now. > See https://emergentwatch.com/2016/03/26/pastors-together-together-in-ecumenical-apostasy/
Now, in a May 6, 2018 pic posted on Facebook page of the “Pastor’s Fellowship of South Orange County” [aka ‘Pastors Together’], Holland can be seen with Ron Sukut (Cornerstone San Clemente) and two other unidentified men, posing outside the Benedictine Catholic “Prince of Peace Abbey” in Oceanside, CA. > See photos https://www.facebook.com/pg/PastorsfellowshipOC/photos/?tab=album&album_id=10156581032822708
As I have documented, this is apparently an annual retreat for the ‘Pastors Together’ [PT] group, since at least 2014. Note that this is a Benedictine monastery devoted to contemplative practices – that is what they do there. At least one of these retreats was led by Dr. Michael Bischof, of Souleader Resources [http://www.souleader.org/leader-retreats]. Souleader itself is a contemplative group that specializes in facilitating “Spiritual Formation” seminars.
In one of their adverts, ‘Prince of Peace’ Monastery says: “We are monks of Prince of Peace Abbey, a monastery of the Order of St. Benedict, in the Catholic Church. We seek and serve God IN OUR [NOTE] CONTEMPLATIVE HORARIUM of liturgical worship and personal prayer…”
WHY has the PT group chosen to hold their retreats at a Catholic monastery – even a Benedictine one – whose monks are specifically contemplative. If they wants a secluded, peaceful atmosphere, there are dozens of beautiful retreat centers in SoCal with much better accommodations – and free from the Catholic contemplative, Eucharistic influences. Again – if they are not involved with contemplative practices, why do a retreat at a contemplative Benedictine monastery? WHY was a contemplative facilitator [‘Souleader’] used?
Aside from many questionable social media posts promoting groups like Jesus Culture, Bethel Music and Hillsong, Holland went out of his way, with multiple posts, to promote NAR frontman Nick Hall and the NAR/ ecumenical “Together 2016” event.
The ‘Pastors Together’ ecumenical group meet regularly – at least monthly, for prayer luncheons. They also do occasional special events and nights of “worship and prayer”, ‘Easter Together’, etc.
