“You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.” – St. Augustine

Many Christians are not living their faith.  Some go to church but don’t participate in their faith community while others have stopped going to church altogether.  For many, their faith is not present in their business and personal relationships or in their actions.

At the same time, these people are restless.  They sense that something is missing but they may not know what it is. They may feel lost and isolated because they are hurt and suffering.  They may be carrying guilt for past failures.  They may be hungry for deeper, meaningful relationships.  Or, they may simply feel like there should be more to life.  Many Christians feel such a ‘hole’ in their lives – and they want to fill it.

At Come, Follow Me Retreats we believe that only God can fill the hole in our lives.  Each of us fills the hole by developing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and living in it each day.

The mission of Come Follow Me Retreats is to create an environment where a personal encounter with Christ is possible for each of us.  By encountering Christ, you will develop an ever-lasting relationship with Jesus.  Through your personal journey with Christ, you transform your four fundamental relationships: with God, with self, with others and with the world.

Come join us!
