Plan, Promote and Host
We are your partner in effective off-site ministry, a powerful tool for churches and ministries that helps them achieve their mission. No two events or churches are exactly alike. We might be embarrassed to admit our combined age of retreat planning experience… it’s north of 100… Even though we have over 100 years of planning experience, we’re not old folks set in our ways, we’re seasoned retreat planners. In addition to planning events, our staff has experience pastoring youth groups, churches, leading ministries, and denomination life. Planning an event with Christian Retreats Network is easy. We build a package that is budget and ministry-conscious, and includes everything you need at one per-person price.
Our professional planners will help you every step of the way… We’re Ministry Focused. You’re holding a retreat for a purpose. Our planning team will help you focus on mission critical aspects of your event like worship, workshops, and small groups. Our Conference and Guest Service teams will help you plan logistics and coordinate hospitality so you can minister to your attendees.
