A journey into the wilderness, away from the daily routine, sharpens our senses to listen and see and feel the presence of God the Creator in the world around us. Maybe you’ve experienced for yourself how “mountain experiences” help us to become more aware of how God is with us in every moment and place.

You’ll recall from Scripture how Jesus often retreated to the wilderness, to recharge, refocus, and discern the will of his Heavenly Father.

Following this example, Holy Adventure Outdoor Ministry, located in Central Illinois, provides unique outdoor retreat opportunities for adults. These retreats provide a unique encounter with Jesus Christ, His Good News, and His importance in our lives while immersed in the beauty and simplicity of God’s creation.

One to three-day retreats on various topics are scheduled throughout the year in Illinois.  Watch this website for announcements.  Special focus retreats are also an option for men’s and women’s prayer groups, college faith communities, and other groups.

Thanks for visiting our website!  I welcome your comments and questions. If you would like to discuss an outdoor retreat that meets the needs of your particular group, please send me a message through the contact form link at the top of this web page.

May God bless you in your journey.

Peace and All Good,
Deacon Kevin Richardson
