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.

“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."
