Focused listening is the purpose of this restorative retreat for those who desire silence and solitude to read their Bibles, pray, respond, and rest in the presence of the Lord. God speaks, but if we are never quiet and listening, how will we hear? The "God Speaks" Retreat offers special opportunities to take the time to truly listen. Private rooms and our beautiful inspiring property, are an ideal setting for this retreat.
