Retreat Information – Overview

These retreats offer an opportunity to deepen your relationships: with yourself, family, and God. It is not easy to live a life in mission with the challenges in our world. We need support, and we find it at the retreats. The focus of the retreats center on healing and reconciliation. We have much work to do in bringing the light of Christ into the world. Our prayer is that you would take advantage of these retreats to increase your faith, hope, and love. We are looking forward to having you with us on the mountain. God Bless!
