Jesus often removed himself from the crowds and retreated in solitude. Following his example, setting time aside to get away from the routines of life and retreat is what we need to grow in our walk with Him. From high energy retreats where 400 plus teenagers worship in Des Moines, to silence and study at Women’s Retreat, God uses these times to challenge us, encourage us and sharpen us so that we are more effective in ministry.
