2019 Retreat

we believe that god wants to fill every part of our lives and be present as a friend, father and helper. Our 18 Inch journey retreat creates a space for adults to be equipped to live out every day connected to jesus and embrace wholehearted living.  


Eighteen Inch Journey Retreat

2019 dates and application information coming soon.

Hosted over four days in the woods of Sophia, NC, this retreat is a concentrated version of our discipleship school, the 18 Inch Journey. This extended weekend is focused on going beyond what you know about God in your head to really knowing Him in your heart. Core themes include building and sustaining God-centered belief systems, creativity, journaling God's voice, emotional health and brave communication. Led by Jonathan and Melissa Helser and the Cageless Birds, this retreat will expand the possibilities of what your daily relationship with God can look like. Ideal for working single adults and / or married individuals who can not come to our two-month school.
