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.
Dates: July 30 – August 1, 2022
From Genesis to Revelation God has revealed who He is and who He has created man to be. Our aim is to see God’s original intention for mankind, His renewed intention after the fall, His fulfillment of that intention in Christ, and His final intention that will last forever. Throughout that process, we’ll find that Christ is our life, our strength, and our hope.
Speakers : Staff Men
Erik Snyder, James Alsum, Tibo Ketterer, and Justin Alexander will be teaching. They are all current staff members at Ravencrest and they each have a heart to see men live in the grace and power of Christ.
Dates: August 3 – 6, 2022
Deconstructing the Proverbs 31 Woman
This unnamed woman represents what so many of us as women have longed to be like. Who is she? What does this “ideal Christian woman’s” life look like in today’s culture? What can we learn from her life and other passages in the Bible that will help us understand the women God desires us to be today? Join us as we explore these questions and more from the perspectives of five women in varying stages of life.
Speakers : Staff Women
Bonnie Thomas, Sarah Snyder, Kristen Romano, Carly Mainland and Kate Schweikart will be jointly teaching this year’s retreat. These Ravencrest staff women have enjoyed the meaningful and powerful times of teaching and fellowship at our past women’s retreats, and they look forward to exploring God’s Word together this year.
Renew: Adult Retreat
Dates: August 8 – 13, 2022
Salvation Through Exodus
We will overview the 40 chapters of Exodus. We will see how this ‘Book of Moses’ is a clear and beautiful continuation from Genesis and flowing into Leviticus and beyond. God has a plan of salvation for all of mankind. Exodus is a definitive presentation of God’s plan and of His faithfulness to accomplish that plan.
Speaker : Wayne Weissman
Wayne is married to Patti and together they have four children and nine grandchildren. They have been in ministry for 37 years, 28 years of which were at Ravencrest. Currently, when not at home in Colorado, Wayne 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."
