We, at 3Crosses Trails, provide soul care for anyone, from leaders to followers to searchers.
The retreat lasts for two or three days and is designed to accommodate a group with up to 12 participants. The groups’ demographics in the past are varied and have included men’s retreats, women’s retreats, couples’ retreats, father and son retreats, and youth retreats. We specialize in equipping leadership teams (such as elders’ boards or staff teams) to help them utilize listening prayer into their church planning.
The retreat includes accommodations (take a peek at 3Crosses Café’s photos), meals, two workshops of spiritual direction on how to hear God’s voice, workbook and journal, and a 3 hour solitary MP3-guided walk through the woods to spend some time with God.
The MP3-guided walk is what we call “The Listening Experience”. Guests experience the glory of listening to God’s voice in His Creation. Along the walk, there are sites that have been inspired by memorable Bible stories. You may hike up to Mount Sinai and curl up in the cabin to meditate on God’s word. You can walk along with Jesus through the garden of Gethsemane, and continue the journey to Golgotha, where three crosses stand.
It is an incredible journey.
We also offer solitary retreats. We have two rustic cabins on the mountain that are designed for prayer and fasting. They do not have running water and inspire guests to get back to basics. There is electricity in the cabins and wood fireplaces that will keep you warm. And of course there is also an outdoor bathroom. Trailers at the base of the mountain with complete bathrooms can be used as well.
If you are interested in booking a solitary retreat and would like to include spiritual direction and the listening experience, be sure to arrange that ahead of time. Although this retreat is counter-cultural; it is a glorious way to simply unplug.
