RETREAT LOCATIONS

Men’s, Women’s & Couples Spiritual Retreat Locations

The Cross Ministry Group hosts Christian spiritual retreats in Colorado, Kentucky, and New Jersey. The weekend retreats for men, women, and couples, take place in beautiful natural settings. Our hope is that the program and setting provide participants with a retreat from their normal lives, so they can focus on God and his purposes for their lives.

TESTIMONIALS

When I came to Women at the Cross, it was a last attempt at trying to find God in the midst of darkness. I came desperate for at least a sign that maybe He still cared for me, that maybe He had heard my cry, that maybe I could feel something other than emptiness. I came begging for crumbs with my soul starving.

What I found last November was so much more than what I could have hoped for. It was one of the most difficult weekends I have ever faced, but it was also the most rewarding weekend I have ever been through.
