The Retreat

Our Radiant Life Retreat (RLR) is a small group debrief and wellness experience for individuals, couples, or families offered multiple times a year. The Radiant Life Retreat is specifically designed for those who have lived cross-culturally for a year or more. It is a time of focused reflection and connection with the Father, taking time to hear His perspective on the past and His guidance for the future.

During our time together we will focus on your personal story. We will help you walk through the joys, losses, and transitions in the power of the cross. You will be given tools to re-engage the calling that the Father has placed on your heart.

This retreat is structured to include a time of processing as an individual as well as in a small group. There will be space to connect with others who have similar missionary experiences, along with focused time for you to process with our staff. And of course there will be alone time with God. Also included are age-appropriate sessions for youth and children correlating with the same program in which the parents are participating.

We believe that God creates special places of beauty, safety, and rest to unwind, process, and be refilled. Our trained staff comes with many years of mission experience, but most of all they know how to listen to you and direct you to the Father.

Each RLR is unique; we offer different locations and different lengths of times so we can better meet the needs of those who will be attending. Please click on the links below to see which RLR will work the best for you.
