Revive Refocus Retreat Rewind

In October, 2010, the Northeast Christian Church small groups ministry partnered with the church’s prayer ministry to offer a retreat for our leaders. The retreat focused on connecting with God, abiding with him, and learning new ways to pray. Here are a few pictures to show some of what we did together.
Here are a few pictures from the retreat!
Chase Lackey led us in worship. Thanks, Chase.
Participants experienced personal, group, and corporate time with God.
Jay Close and the Northeast Prayer Team modeled “Community Prayer” in a group for us. Here, Jay gives a brief explanation.
At the end of the retreat, we were invited to do a prayer walk through the woods at Emerald Hills. For me, this was a highlight of the day. I came across this meadow, and though this picture doesn’t do it justice, this was a great place for me to stop and draw close to my Creator.
This is one of the many “prayer pagodas” along the trail. Many of the retreat attenders used these as prayer stations to stop and pray (individually or with a small group) about some specific Scriptural subjects dealing with our relationships with God.

  1. It was a day of experiencing God and letting Him minister to us by learning to spend time in his presence. I was able to refocus and fortify my foundation in Christ. What a beautiful place to meet with God. Susan Mattingly
