Walking Stick Retreats


Our retreat for 2017 is entitled “The Kingdom is like…”

Jesus spent a great deal of time teaching about what the Kingdom of God is like; many of His parables began with that statement.  In this year’s retreat we will be digging into His teachings on this key theme, perhaps finding that the Kingdom He describes is very different from our perceptions.

Using interactive teachings, small groups, worship, guided devotional time, along with an opportunity for one on one direction, we hope to both uncover more of what the Kingdom is truly like and discover what it might mean to live out these truths in our lives.  We are excited to be adding to the retreat experience expanded opportunities and challenges to explore the expression of our theme through various mediums of art.

So…what is the Kingdom like and how do I live the Kingdom out in my life? Join us at one of our camps.


What Are People Saying About Walking Stick Retreats?

“I thought I was too far away from God to ever be able to come back and to be loved by Abba. The retreat showed me how much God loved me and changed my life so much.”

– William 34


“The retreat was a safe place for me to go deep and deal with issues in my heart, to be silent yet seen. I stopped often. Just stopped and listened. Stopped with myself and God. And there was no expectation of forced words or forced joining. It was sweet. The vulnerability of the speakers was quiet encouragement to turn and face God and know I was really loved and surrender to it.”

—Tess, 29

“Through each amazing speaker God gave me another piece to the puzzle, just what I needed when I didn’t even know it. These pieces along with the personal devotion time & the new friendships revealed God’s presence in my life, healing of my past, & hope for the future as my relationship with Him was nurtured.”

—Richie, 37
