Come Away with Me Retreat

Encounter the Healing Power of Christ

The Come Away With Me retreats are designed to help participants encounter the healing power of the living Christ. This retreat focuses on deep inner healing through the modality of Formational Prayer.

The retreats are led by a team of highly-gifted and professionally-trained caregivers who will help you work through the wounds that compromise life and ministry. During your experience, you will receive specialized attention in formational care that will position you for deep personal healing. You will be assigned to a caregiver who will meet with you each day during the retreat for a Formational Prayer session. The caregivers also work as a team and are available to all participants throughout the retreat. This year's retreats will be taking place at the beautiful Eagle Wings Lodge in the scenic region of Hocking Hills, Ohio.

Testimonies

"I loved this retreat. I am still thinking about all the laughs, tears, and friendships built during that week.  I highly recommend this retreat for anybody who is struggling with things from their past, and to get healing from those experiences. It was a hard week as I had to deal with things from my past, and I had to learn to forgive others for things done to me, and also forgive myself for things which I have done. However, it brought healing into my life, and since then I have worked through a few more issues. The retreat gave me tools which I am still using regularly and daily."

"The Come Away with Me retreat was the missing piece to the puzzle of my life. I fit now...I am complete now in Christ, what a gift! My words are not sufficient to describe the life-transforming week it was for me! If you, like me, have struggled in any way with our Heavenly Father with fear or doubt of His great unconditional love because of past wounds, this retreat offers you such a safe and loving environment to hear, taste and feel the truth of the greatest longing of your heart...His incredible mercy, grace and unconditional love!  If you choose to "Come Away With Me" He will truly meet you!"

Other Important Information

Space is limited to 12 participants. Due to space limitations, all participants will share a room with one other participant of the same gender (unless attending with a spouse). 

A completed registration form and a $250 non-refundable deposit are required to reserve a spot at a retreat.

The remaining balance must be paid in full 30 days prior to the start of the retreat. However, because we recognize that individuals may register after this point, in limited situations, alternative arrangements may be made for this (with the full balance being paid prior to the retreat unless otherwise indicated by the Program Coordinator).

A minimum number of participants must be registered and attending for a retreat to be held. If this is not the case, the retreat will be canceled. If this happens, participants' payments will be refunded or transferred to another retreat.

This retreat is a one-time experience for participants. Consequently, if you are interested in attending but have done so in the past, you will be asked to describe your reasons for wanting to come again on the registration form. Attendance will then be subject to approval by the Team Leader.

Refunds for cancellations or transfers (to another retreat) within 30 days prior to a retreat will be handled on a case-by-case basis and will likely reflect the deduction of some or all costs already incurred.
