If you are a Christian who is ready to travel, build genuine Christian friendships, and be mindful of God in your adventures - then join us in tropical Florida for an exploration into God's creation and community!
Standing on a paddleboard drifting across the waves as a the sun begins to set, listening to the seagulls as you smell the ocean breeze...
...it's the perfect way to end a day of venturing through the hidden mangroves on a kayaks and learning to sail a catamaran on the St Lucie River!
You joke with new friends as you retell stories of - flying through the clouds on the trapeze, relaxing at the spa, and making a splash on water skis - recalling how these adventures pushed you outside your comfort zone to courageous new heights with the Lord.
Admiring the palm trees surrounding your peaceful getaway, you are thrilled that you are finally here... connecting with people in God's creation after a year of physical and spiritual isolation.
(Is this tropical paradise anything like heaven?)
Oh, the wonders of Port St. Lucie!
Let me tell you more...
Now, I know that you've heard that God designed us all uniquely and to be in community....
...but imagine the powerful connections formed when travel motivated Christians like you - gather together again to collaborate explore His creation and by mindful of His miracles!
This incredible retreat is a true example of the dynamic impact our brothers & sisters in Christ have on our perspectives.
Just because God called us to "go" and explore His creation - doesn't mean we have to travel alone!
After all, we all need some encouragement in our faith walk - especially when we are on the road.

-What if, you discovered how to be attentive of God's presence in the busiest of times and in the simplest activities?
-What if, you joined us in large group & small group devotions to unpack the spiritual truths of resting with our Savior?
-What if you kept a journal of your travels, that was full of God sightings and adventures that you were able to take home and share with your friends and family?
- What if, you got to enjoy your own personal sanctuary that left you feeling refreshed and at peace, as you spent time with the Lord?
-And what if, you not only grew spiritually but also courageously as you tried your hand at different water & land sports among the company of new found friends?
Would THAT be a retreat worth attending?
Of course it would be!
Here's the thing: BEFORE you even set foot out the door, you can begin to make those powerful connections!
To ensure that you get the most out of this event, we will gather together twice before the event for virtual meetups where you will get to know the other participants and learn how to prepare for our trip together!
By the end of the five days the group will have become each others accountability, inspiration, and motivation to restore Christ into the center of your life and adventures.

We are in this together. Changing the conversation around travel to focus on God instead of fleeting affirmations from sources like social media - starts with YOU!
