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.
NEW Retreat for Families and Individuals
Dates: July 1-6, 2018
Cost: $375 + 3.45% tax
Speakers: Frank Cirone and Wayne Weissman will be teaching together throughout the week about Jesus Christ: Timeless Truth for All Ages and Stages of Life.
Reunite with God and one another. Life is busy and draining at times & can leave us feeling lonely, hungry for intimacy with God and community. The purpose of the Reunite retreat is to provide Christ centered lectures to encourage your hearts, minds, and souls to continue walking with Christ.
We want to provide a place for alumni and new friends alike to enjoy community with one another. Throughout the week, there will be hikes in Rocky Mountain National Park, and outdoor activities like climbing, kayaking, and mountain biking, culminating with special activities in the evening.
Families are more than welcome to join!

Men Fully Alive
Cameron Tate is a Colorado native born and raised in Castle Rock and works at Southern Gables Church in Littleton. He received his bachelor’s degree in Biblical and theological studies from Multnomah University in Portland, OR and is receiving his master of divinity degree (MDiv) from Denver Seminary this year. His wife, Katherine, is a native Oregonian and together they are adjusting to life with their newborn baby, Zipporah. Cameron enjoys all things in the mountains, summer or winter, but with balancing school, work, and a newborn he’s recently grown in his appreciation for a good nap.
Theology of Work
Have you ever wondered whether you’re accomplishing your calling? What is a “calling,” anyway? What’s the difference between a “job” and a “vocation?” Together, we’ll explore a Biblical and theological understanding of work, its nature, significance, value and place in God’s Kingdom.

COST: $195 + 3.45% TAX
Refresh: Women’s Retreat
A retreat for Women
Having lived in Colorado for the past 12 years, Sarah Snyder has lost most of her southern accent (but if you listen closely, you may detect it – especially when she’s reminiscing about growing up in South Carolina on a plantation near the coast). For the majority of her life, Sarah thought the Christian life was what she achieved for God: sitting under expository teaching in a large church, being highly active in a variety of ministries, graduating from Bible College. Through repentance and faith in the Risen, indwelling Christ, Sarah is thankfully learning that the Christian life is Someone she receives from God- a Person, Jesus Himself. She enjoys simple things: sunlight, fresh air, wildflowers, cuddles with her 6 children, coffee with her husband Erik, and hiking with her family.
“I have always been inspired by Sarah Snyder’s walk with Jesus. The practical wisdom that pours forth from early mornings spent in His Word is worked out in the busyness of mothering 6 children and mentoring young women. She has lived a life of dependency on the Lord and she has much to teach us! She is a gifted communicator and you won’t want to miss the opportunity to learn more of HIM through her.” – Bonnie Thomas
Available: All of Christ in all of me
DATES: August 2 – 5, 2018

Igniting Worship: Kindling Our Hearts For God
Worship is so much more than the songs we sing on Sunday; true worship is the very purpose of our existence. It is everything. Therefore, understanding worship and igniting our hearts for God is vital to walking in the life and joy God has envisioned for us in Him. Join us for a week in the mountains for rest, renewal, and soul care as we explore the subject of Biblical worship and its implications for our walks with Christ.

“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."
