Retreat as a Spiritual Practice

Jesus often pulled His disciples away from the crowds for intentional times of connection with him

Gain New Awareness

God is always up to more than we realize, so we slow down to notice and name new invitations He is offering to deepen in His love

The Holy Spirit is Impressive

You’ll recruit three friends to intercede for you during this time and God is always faithful, ever present, and helping

FAQs

Our Journey Home retreats are three day/two night retreats aimed at helping you feel more at home in the love of God. These retreats are stand-alone retreats that cover the highpoints of our year long Eden Cohorts which involve three Retreats:

  • Knowledge of God - Helping leaders encounter God as better than we believed him to be. 
  • Knowledge of Self - Helping leaders embrace the beauty and limits of who they are as the beloved of God. 
  • Pace & Practices - Helping leaders establish a pace and practice for a life of relational flourishing.

The majority of our retreat spots are reserved for people who are in an active leadership role in their church, their ministry organization, or the marketplace. 

 

The cost to attend our Journey Home Retreats vary depending on the location of that retreat.

Affirmation of the Lausanne Covenant and the Apostles Creed.

Yes. We will serve healthy and nutritious meals; and they try to accommodate a variety of dietary restrictions. We inform the kitchen/catering staff when we have individuals in our group who have some special dietary needs. This will accommodate vegetarian and gluten-free options for those who specified that when registering. 

We build our retreats and cohorts for both marketplace and ministry leaders, both female and male. The Journey Home Retreat is ideal for those who are hungry for more with God, who are experiencing a low ceiling in their relationships, or who simply sense that there has to be more to Christianity than they are currently experiencing. 

 

If you have been formed enough in Christ to be an imperfect, but committed disciplemaker…

If you are hungry to experience more with God than you’ve known…

If you are willing to admit your neediness before God… 

 

…you’re a great candidate for Eden Lead.
