Personal, Family & Small Group Retreats

The life you lead today can be draining, exhausting, and utterly difficult to navigate. That's why it is important to create a time for intentional withdrawal from the noise of the world surrounding you. Let us help you create a space where you can hear the voice of God, rest, and be rejuvenated at the Way Of Holiness Retreat Center & Lay Community. Walk away from your personal, family or small group retreat feeling refreshed and renewed.

Types Of Personal, Family & Small Group Retreats

Everyone who comes for a personal, family, or small group retreat comes for a different reason. Some come to just find rest, others come for silence and yet others come to complete a book they are writing or contemplate an important decision in life. Whatever your reason for coming you will have access to our chapel, library, art studio, prayer ministry and the refuge of a Christian facility surrounded by nature. Individual, personal, & small group retreats can be a day, weekend or week length and occasionally monthly lengths can be accommodated. Individual personal retreats are self-led, however, our staff will be available for prayer ministry if requested.

Prayer Ministry Questions & Answers

What is Prayer Ministry?

Prayer Ministry is an opportunity to encounter the power, truth and love of God as someone prays with you, discerning and passing on what they sense God has for you. This could be healing, forgiveness, blessing, encouragement or freedom. Sometimes it is a word, image, song, or scripture verse. Your prayer minister will follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit and allow God to lead your prayer ministry session.

Prayer ministry does NOT replace counselling, psychology or your doctor's advice regarding mental health or other medical issue. Prayer ministry is NOT a replacement for these therapies or specialties.

What is the purpose of Prayer Ministry?

The purpose of the Prayer Ministry is to plan and conduct prayer sessions that help lead the church members into an active life of prayer. To help turn God's House, the church building, into a House of Prayer (Isaiah 56:7; Matthew 21:13).

What happens during a Prayer Ministry Session?

In person we will first bless you with blessing balm or holy water. Sessions follow this general flow: 1. Invite the Holy Spirit to be present as we seal ourselves, you and those around us so that we are spiritually protected during the prayer session. 2. We will await the leading of the Holy Spirit as He guides us in how to pray for you. You will be asked what you would like prayer for and have a chance to share. 3. You will be asked if it is alright to lay hands on your shoulder or head. 4. We will now enter into the prayer ministry portion of the session which looks different for each person as God meets then where they are, as they are. 5. After the session we will seal you with the Precious Blood Of Jesus and check in with you to see how you are doing. When in person you may want to spend some time in prayer in the chapel.

What else can I expect during my Prayer Ministry Session?

You can expect that the power gifts of the Holy Spirit may be used. These may include: Words of wisdom; Words of knowledge; Faith; Healings; Working of miracles; Prophecy; Discernment of spirits; Speaking in tongues; and Interpretation of tongues.
