Engaging people to know Christ, through the Word, the outdoors and relationships
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28.
In a broken world we can easily find ourselves worn down underneath endless weights and pressures, but the invitation of Christ is to find rest in Him. Our prayer for all who attend these retreats is that they would enter into a rest far beyond any luxury the world has to offer, and that finding the rest that is in Christ, they could remain in His rest even as they go. Come seek the Lord with us in His Word and find that His yoke is easy, and His burden is light.
Dates: July 29 – 31, 2023
Designed For Doxology
All of us are designed to glorify the Lord. The beautiful grace of God is that in beholding His glory, we find complete satisfaction in Him and Him alone. Come explore the Scriptures with us as we learn to savor, see, be stunned by, and be sustained by the glory of God.
Speaker: Andrew Moss
Dates: August 2 – 5, 2023
Walking With The Women Who Walked With Jesus
Jesus had personal encounters with many women throughout the Gospels. Join us as we dig deeper into these moments and discover what He was communicating to them, the religious bystanders, and to us today.
Speakers : Staff Women
Bonnie Thomas, Sarah Snyder, Kristen Romano, Sarah Ketterer and Kate Schweikart will be jointly teaching this year’s retreat.

Renew: Adult Retreat
Dates: August 7 – 12, 2023
The mission that Jesus gave His disciples in Jerusalem nearly 2,000 years ago was to bear witness that Jesus is the Christ. Come and study how the Holy Spirit worked in the early Church to begin drawing the world to the risen Savior.

“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."
