Retreats

The ministry of a retreat

The ministry of a retreat may be the best way to impact children, teens and adults in your church or organization. Powerful life change can happen when we leave the normal routine of life, focus on God’s truth without distraction and see Christian principles lived in the context of shared life. Jesus would often retreat with his disciples to find solitude and rest; or to accomplish specific ministry purposes. We would be wise to follow his example.

Our desire is to make the Log Cabin available on both weekdays and weekends to pastors, families from our retreat groups, ministry teams or small retreat groups who want to do their own cooking.
