Walking Stick Retreats


The theme for our Spring 2019 retreat is “The Disappointing Messiah”.

If we are honest, although we love Jesus, there are times we are disappointed with Him…He often does not work in the ways we think He should in our lives, and we don’t comprehend His timing. His teachings are at times difficult to understand and His call to discipleship can seem overwhelming. Using interactive teachings, small groups, worship and the arts, participants will come to understand the difference between the God they WANT and the God they truly NEED.

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
