Retreat - July 10, 11, 2017

Embrace the Mystery


Every retreat is designed with 4 things in mind:

  • AWARENESS: to dive into a topic and learn something new; something important!
  • EDUCATION: to grow in knowledge so your leadership is well informed - helpful rather than harmful.
  • ACTION: to be inspired to respond in a meaningful way that is true to you and the community God has placed you.
  • TRANSFORMATION: to be open to listen to God and how he is moving you to your next steps.

AND..we aim to have a blast while doing it!

Only 8 Spots available.

Cost is $30/person to be paid prior to the retreat.

This retreat is designed to introduce participants to contemplative spirituality.

Using ancient Christian practices, we'll experience God in a new way.

Leaders know that "being" must come before "doing" and prioritize their connection with Christ.

We'll spend our time diving into the following:

  • Lectio Divina - a fresh way to hear God speak through scripture.
  • Centering Prayer and Examen - ancient prayer practices lost to most Protestant Christians
  • Solitude - how it changes everything (but makes you feel crazy at first!)
  • Pilgrimage - what it is and how to enjoy it without traveling to the other side of the world!
  • ...and there are some surprises baked in that will rock ya!
