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 also offers guided Soul Care Retreats for Men called JM2 Mornings Apart.

JourneyMates Retreats are facilitated by trained JourneyMates Facilitators and take place in private homes, churches and other contemplative settings. The 2019-2020 ministry year JourneyMates Retreats are listed below.

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 maryvandelyoung@journeymates.org.
