The DISCOVER Mountain Retreat


Discover YOU. Discover HOPE. Discover HEALING.

Come join us for a weekend on Petit Jean Mountain. The days should be mild and pleasant with the nights just chilly enough to enjoy a cozy fire in your cabin’s fireplace.  There are plenty of trails to explore including a waterfall hike (if you remember to bring your hiking boots).  The State Park grounds have lots of outdoor space for us to utilize with meals and some planned activities indoors.  

We anticipate this weekend to be one where you will discover hope and healing as you take the time to slow down, listening to your own story and the stories of others.

There will be several scheduled events, all of which are optional, leaving ample time to mingle, relax and enjoy yourself.  Scheduled events may include speakers, workshops and group activities.

Space is limited, so register TODAY!
