Group Retreats

What is a Group Retreat?

REST Ministries can host groups of up to 28 individuals at our elegant retreat facility, Shepherd’s Gate Inn. You can bring your own speakers or REST can provide the teaching on your choice of a variety of subjects. REST’s group retreats are designed for many various groups:

  • Elders
  • Church staff
  • Sunday school classes
  • Study, mentoring and accountability groups
  • Couples (marriage retreats)
  • Work groups (team building retreats)
  • Worship teams
  • Prayer ministry teams

Retreats led by REST Ministries include teaching time which is balanced with time for personal reflection. Plenty of free time is left open for fun, play and relaxation as well. The retreats are all very flexible and can be custom tailored to meet your group’s needs! Contact us for pricing, availability and reservations.

Group Retreat Topics

The following retreats are offered by REST staff:

Covered by the Dust of His Sandals

Since we don’t live by physically following Jesus daily, how do we become covered by the dust of His sandals? This course is designed to intensely dig into what God desires our discipleship to look like.

Healthy Relationships: Living a Lifestyle of Forgiveness

Understanding the need (and how) to forgive so our relationship with Christ and others can be restored.

God Honoring Marriage

This retreat not only looks at the differences in men and woman but provides very useful tools in developing a God honoring marriage. Couples who grow in intimacy with Christ also grow in intimacy with each other.

Experiencing Worship

Worship isn’t just twenty minutes of singing on Sunday morning. God intends worship to be a lifestyle! You will enjoy exploring the many methods and avenues God uses to draw us closer to Him allowing us to respond in true worship.

Leading out of Intimacy with God

There are 4,434 books on Christian Leadership and that number is growing daily! This retreat equips leaders to lead out of God’s power that comes directly out of intimacy with Him…not on their own power!
