Amanda and I recently stumbled upon something called Kerith Retreats. A few emails back and forth and we were on our way to beautiful Manitoba.
Kerith Retreats is a ministry of Focus on the Family Canada. It is a place for ministry couples to refresh and renew.
I have been to a number of retreats before but nothing like this. There is preparation work, including Myers-Briggs and Taylor-Johnson. When we arrived, we expected extensive workshops and exhausting lectures. We couldn’t have been more wrong.
There were daily sessions, that included personal time with the directors, but there was also plenty of time to sleep, hike or just spend time as a couple. It was one of the most relaxing times that I have ever had.
We were at the retreat centre outside of Winnipeg, Manitoba. There is another one outside Calgary, Alberta. I highly recommend this to all ministry couples. It is very affordable and the retreat centre and food were incredible.
If you are ministry, you at least check Kerith Retreats out. You won’t be disappointed.
