Explore the Powerful Experience that Awaits You at The Cross Ministry Group Retreats & Workshops in Colorado, Kentucky, and East Coast




Christian Spiritual Retreats that Transform Lives


A powerful encounter with God awaits you. The intensive, experiential weekend retreats of The Cross Ministry Group are Christ-centered settings designed intentionally to help you experience the truth of God’s Word and His Presence in your life. We explore blocks that inhibit our connections to others and to His power and love. We provide opportunity to discover truths that usher us into freedom and authenticity as we are liberated to embrace more fully the truth of who we are in Christ. 

We invite you to come and be open to experience what God has for you.    

Over 7000 men, women and couples from 46 states and Canada have attended our weekends.


Participants Share Their Experience at The Cross Ministry Group Retreats

Leadership: Facing My Fear

One of the principles we hold to is:

“God meets us at the edge–when we face our fears.”

Tell me your greatest fear…

I don’t often take this particular exercise from the weekend into my “real” life. However, this year, so far, has been a doozy, and I am finding myself aware of a frequent sense of fear and anxiety. …I have found myself with a roving sense of fear…that is loud in my head.
