About our retreat

POSSIBLY THE BEST WEEKEND OF YOUR LIFE!!


About Set Free We don’t think of ourselves as needing to be set free, because one of the core principles of our country is freedom. As a Christ follower our freedom came at a cost and is not an inherent right. Being set free is personal, passionate and public. When we are truly set fee these thee aspects of this life should play out in our everyday striving to be like Jesus.
