Throughout each ministry year, JourneyMates hosts guided Soul Care Retreats. Called JM Mornings Apart and JM Days Apart our retreats are open to anyone yearning for dedicated time and space to simply be with God through silence, solitude, contemplative reflection and prayerful scripture reading.

JourneyMates Retreats are facilitated by trained JourneyMates Facilitators and take place in private homes, churches and other contemplative settings. Remaining 2018-19 ministry year JourneyMates Retreats are listed below. Watch for our 2019-10 JM Retreat dates coming soon!

JourneyMates also facilitates Soul Care and Discernment Retreats for boards, leadership teams and volunteer groups of local churches, non-profit ministries, and Christian schools. For more information contact our Executive Director, Mary Vandel Young at



JM2 – JourneyMates Men’s Morning Apart

Join us for a JM2 – JourneyMates Men’s Morning Apart: This JourneyMates Men’s Morning Apart is designed for men who are attending their first silent retreat and for those who have experienced soul care and spiritual formation retreats in the past. JM Facilitators, Barney Ford and Frank Shell, will come alongside you as you open time and space to enjoy God’s presence with you and for you.

We invite you to step away from the regular and routine activities of life and leadership into a few spacious hours of guided silence, prayerful reflection, Scripture meditation and unstructured time in silence and solitude with God, the Shepherd of your soul.
