Three Hills, AB
A period of reflection for individuals and families who work cross culturally.
At this 5-day program you will meet others who understand the unique stressors and joys of missionary service and reentry. You will have the opportunity to reflect on your experiences, to consider the impact of events and relationships, to grieve the losses and disappointments, to explore the challenges of transition and to celebrate the successes. This is done in the context of discussions, personal reflection, group and individual debriefing and is led by experienced cross-cultural workers who ‘get it’.
There will be specialized sessions for all age groups that will enable the whole family to process their experiences.

COME AWAY AND BE STILL
Take the time to pause and intentionally draw near to Christ as you experience renewal with insightful teachings, a restful schedule and a relaxing atmosphere.
Surrounded by the calm of nature, our retreat centres offer the space to truly find stillness and our retreat schedule enables you to experience profound renewal in Christ. Since we understand the value of coming away, we set aside ample time for you to pray, reflect and let your mind slow down as you reconnect with God.
Our desire at Kerith Retreats is that you experience real rest in God during your stay here and you leave empowered by the time away, the teaching and the one-on-one sessions with the program directors.
