Engaging people to know Christ, through the Word, the outdoors and relationships
Not everyone can spare a year to attend Bible School but the desire to study the Word of God is strong. To meet this desire, Ravencrest Chalet offers a full range of retreats to suit individuals of all ages.
Recharge: Mens Retreat
Dave grew up in England and served as the Director of Outreach at Capernwray Hall, where he met his wife Sadie, and together they have 3 children. After moving to the US, Dave spent ten years working in Forensics for the San Francisco PD and pastored the local Calvary Chapel. The Jacksons now live in Nevada, where Dave is a Supervisor in the Sheriff’s Office Forensic Lab, and enjoys opportunities to teach God’s Word.
God’s Word has so much to say about the state of our heart. Guarding, purifying, hardening and examining it are among many topics God speaks of that are of importance in our walk with Him. We will use the four physical portions of the human heart to help us focus on Biblical Truth so that we can examine the state of our spiritual heart.
DATES: August 1 – August 3, 2020
Refresh: Women’s Retreat
Sadie has trusted Jesus since being a child, and chose to study His Word at Capernwray Hall in the late 90’s. She met her husband while serving God there almost 20 years ago, and ministered to the Bible school students and guests in various roles. She has a desire to encourage others by sharing the truth of God’s Word through the studying of Scripture and fellowship. Sadie is mom to three children, and currently lives with her family in Northern Nevada.
Unfortunately, Sue Gilmore is no longer able to come and teach due to the current travel ban for those coming from the UK and Europe. We are grateful that Sadie Jackson, a dear friend of Sue, is able to come and teach on the book of Ruth.
DATES: August 6 – August 9, 2020
Renew: Adult Retreat
Wayne and his wife, Patti, have four children and nine grandchildren. They have been in ministry for 36 years. Currently, when not at home in Colorado, he spends a great amount of time traveling and teaching.

“We love the opportunity to be challenged by excellent Bible teaching in the context of the Rocky Mountains. A bonus for us has been the annual renewal of friendships and the making of new ones."
“My time and experience at the Ravencrest Men’s Retreat was simply comforting, encouraging, and most edifying; all of which helped me specifically to engage properly in the life challenges ahead. It takes God to be a man."
"Each year I eagerly look forward to Women's Week at Ravencrest. Located in God's beautiful creation -- the Rocky Mountains -- Ravencrest provides a glorious week of learning from lectures by an outstanding staff and hearing the truth of God's Word. Women's Week is a refreshing and renewing conference that offers quiet time to be with God plus activities of every sort. There is a Christian fellowship and love that shines from God through the Ravencrest staff. Thank you for opening the Chalet to us each year."
