Crieff Fellowship USA

Jan. 31- Feb. 3, 2022





William Still, the famous Scottish pastor and preacher, along with a handful of other men, began a conference that sought to serve pastors.  That handful of men devoted themselves to prayer, the preaching of the WORD, and the means of grace. There were never any games or entertainment, no networking, or think-tanks-it was simply a few men who found themselves equal before the cross of Christ and who sought true fellowship, Thus the Crieff Fellowship was born.


The Crieff Fellowship met for the first time in a small town in Scotland from which it derives its name. Crieff Fellowship USA is patterned after its father in Scotland. The purpose of Crieff Fellowship is threefold: 

1) to fellowship together as ministers of the gospel

2) to devote ourselves to prayer and the worship of God

3) to be challenged and encouraged by the Word of God so that we may return to our ministries prepared to do His work. 


Crieff Fellowship wants to meet our essential needs as ministers by becoming a mini-sabbatical that includes expository teaching, honest worship, intercessory prayer, and encouragement. Our Schedule is simple and involves only teaching, worship, prayer, and meals.


You have plenty of free time to spend by yourself, or with your spouse, enjoying the mountains, playing golf, fishing, or even late night basketball games, which have become a tradition over the last few years. However, your participation is up to you- we want you to leave refreshed and filled.
