To provide welcoming spaces for those in Christian ministry to encounter the healing love and presence of God in order to serve with greater authenticity.
Guided by three core values:
1 - God Led
2 - Guest Centered
3 - Creation Sensitive
We are a ministry to adults and families who are serving in local or global ministry that desire to connect with God in the spirit of retreat.
Why is this vital...
The noise and busyness of daily life demands that we come away with Jesus to keep company with Him, taking time to enter His rest, to hear His Words and to enjoy His World. Without rest we so easily lose our way, our health, our hope.
Come, disconnect from technology and reconnect with God in nature.
Live simply for a day or two or more.
BRING: Your Bible, a journal, a sketch pad, a camera, binoculars, fishing pole, and comfortable walking shoes.
Come. Slow. Rest. Explore. Enjoy God. You will be refreshed!
What our Guests are saying:
"God couldn't have given me a better place and time to 'just be' with Him."
"I came here as a pastor who was burned out and not sure of His next step. I leave refreshed, refueled and renewed in my spirit."
"As missionaries from Haiti we have never encountered a place so beautiful and welcoming set aside for the servants of the Lord!"
We achieve this by providing four fully equipped two-bedroom cabins that sleep up to 6, and a group Gathering Space that accommodates up to 40 day guests. Whether you come alone, as a family, a ministry team or small group, you are invited to make yourselves at home for a day, a night or more, in the quiet spaces of this countryside retreat.
The time is yours to plan and use as desired, with respect for others who may also be on retreat. You may choose to explore the sprawling 150 acres, fish, boat or swim in the lake, feed the horses, rest in the hammock, nap in your cabin, relax in the hot tub, walk the labyrinth, or sit by a warm fire. The choice is yours.
The Springs is a registered 501c3.
