The Journey Home Retreat is a safe place to lay aside your responsibilities at home and work to simply be souls before God. The reality for all of us is that even when we are in a healthy season, we long for more, relationally.

During The Journey Home Retreat you’ll experience:

  • Relationally safe environments conducive for souls (which are very shy) to open up to love
  • A reformation of your own emotional image of God
  • Resources that will deepen all your relationships
  • Guided practices to help you live more at home in the love of God
