Renewal Retreats

Creating space for Christian leaders in ministry and business to experience holistic renewal and spiritual direction

The Retreat Experience

Renewal Retreats are individual, personalized retreats tailored around your chosen intention (need/longing) for getting away.

For each retreat we thoughtfully draw from the formation-rich environment of the Asbury Seminary community and craft personalized days to move you slowly through formative experiences aimed toward your intention for the retreat.

Most retreats begin with a professional massage as well as a conversation with a personal trainer to discuss health and choose a gentle way to engage the body during the retreat.

The other elements of your retreat are chosen to fit your request. These might include a conversation with faculty around Scripture, discerning prayer times, though leadership advice, sharing in the Eucharist and participating in chapel, fasting in solitude or delving into study.
