Veterans Ministry

Coming Home Retreat

A Free Christian retreat program designed to help military men and women come to spiritual healing and reconciliation with God, themselves and with one another. There is NO charge for this retreat for our vets and their significant other. At this retreat, veterans are encouraged to share their story in a safe environment, in the company of other military. We invite you to watch the video for more information.


“I walked in feeling nervous and anxious, unsure of what to expect at this retreat. Within the first hour I felt more relaxed and at home than I have in years. These people “get it.” After my retreat, I have slept with regular dreams, no nightmares. I can now see that my PTSD is a small piece of my puzzle that can be managed instead of a HUGE thing that defines me. This retreat gave me hope and saved my marriage.”
—Marc and Michele, US Army
