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

Born and raised in Chicago, Rob accepted Christ as savior at 9 years old, and is a graduate of Trinity Bible College.  Rob then served for 5 years as the youth pastor on the North side of Chicago in the Evangelical Free Church. He then moved to Steamboat Springs, CO, with his wife and two children in June of 1982.  After 7 years of ministry, he was asked to pastor a small Bible Church in Steamboat where he stayed for 18 years, and has since retired from the job, but not the preaching.  Rob is currently enjoying being the grandfather of four and great-grandfather to one.  Rob & his wife Lynn will be married 52 years this November.

In between, you “must” be born again, and we “must” all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, are there some “musts”, for those who desire to experience what Jesus calls “the abundant life”? We will explore what it means to know Christ personally, and what it means to experience His purpose for us.  Phil. 3 & II Cor. 4&5

DATES: July 27 – July 29, 2019
COST: $215 + 3.70% TAX

Refresh: Women’s Retreat

Erika is originally from Wisconsin and has been living in Colorado for the last seven years. She and her husband, Luke, have been married for six years and both serve on staff at Calvary Wellspring Church in Aurora, Colorado. She has a passion for studying the Bible and will be graduating with a Masters in
Biblical and Theological Studies from Denver Seminary this spring. She loves all things having to do with the mountains so she cannot wait to grow to know Jesus more by studying the Bible alongside women during the Refresh retreat this summer!

In an ever-changing culture that prioritizes novel trends and fast-paced lives, there is an invitation for a different way: one that is rooted, grounded, and abounding. Join us this summer as we dive into the book of Colossians where we will discover the unchanging One, Jesus Christ, and how He forms the bedrock of our identities and lives, providing rest for our souls.

DATES: August 1 – August 4, 2019
COST: $285 + 3.70% TAX




Ron Lowery has been married to Maryanne for 33 years and they have two wonderful children, ages 14 and 8. Ron has been in Christian ministry for 39 years, pastored churches for 20 plus years, and served as the Principal of Capernwray Bible School New Zealand.  He has preached and led conferences in several countries and currently serves as pastor of Concan Baptist Mission in Concan, TX.

In Colossians the believer is confronted with the Centrality and Supremacy of Christ Jesus in all things.  We learn that Christ is the eternal Messiah come, not only to forgive us and redeem us from our sin, but to live His life within the believer.  In this grand epistle we are clearly informed that the Christian life is the out-living of the Life of the IN-living Christ.

Dates:  August 6 – 11, 2019
Cost: $415+ 3.70% tax

  • “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."

    Chet Texas
  • "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."
