Deep within our hearts is a desire to experience a growing intimacy with God. We know He invites us to a deeper relationship with Him, yet many challenges are present in realizing the fulfillment of our desire. This retreat will explore and unpack how our view of God, our core longings and responses, the false values we hold, and our emotions can be barriers to growing our intimacy with Him. We will further explore how we can overcome those barriers with truth, thereby creating gateways to intimacy with God. There will be opportunity to discuss and practice various methods of connecting with Him in meaningful ways. Spouses are welcome.
