Renewal Retreats

Join us on the Wilmore Kentucky campus for a Renewal Retreat!

Renewal Retreats are individual, personalized retreats tailored around your chosen intention (needs and longings) 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:  conversation with faculty around scripture, discerning prayer times, thoughtful leadership advice, sharing in the Eucharist and participating in chapel, fasting in solitude, or delving into study. 

The cost of renewal retreats varies depending on length of stay and activity participation.  There are full scholarships available!  Don’t miss out on this opportunity to participate in this form of retreat. 

If you are interested, feel free to contact Peg Hutchins, the Director of Community Formation, at (859) 858-2242 or Tammy Cessna, the Director of Alumni and Church Relations, at (859) 858-2306

New Room Conference

Sept 20-22 Franklin, TN

At its core, New Room is a new space in the larger arena of global Christianity. New Room has emerged as a place where Christians sharing a common Wesleyan-Arminian theological perspective can find common fellowship and a valuable resourcing platform. The goal of New Room is to be a community where individuals can remain true to their own traditions—Nazarene, Free Methodist, Wesleyan, United Methodist, Salvation Army, Pentecostal, nondenominational, etc. while at the same time joining with passionate believers who share their hope for revival and their expectation that through the agency of the Holy Spirit lives can be powerfully and decisively changed. These persons and groups are united in a belief that God is not through with this work and that (appearances notwithstanding) the Wesleyan revival is not fully spent!
