Thrive Retreat Overview

Retreats are a four day gift to an oasis of refreshment. Many of our attendees work in remote locations where running water and electricity are not available or dependable. By hosting our retreats at a conference center or hotel, we provide an environment for physical, spiritual, and emotional renewal.

Each retreat location ministers to 50-100 global women. A retreat is held in Colorado each July for women on home assignment. In February, April, and October the retreats are hosted at international locations. The volunteer team for international retreats is typically overseas for 10-16 days to accommodate pre-retreat training, hosting the retreats, and taking time to reflect on the experience together.

Retreat locations city


In 1998, we began hosting retreats in various regions around the world for Global Women to get away from their demanding work for a time of rest, renewal, and refreshment. The women are ministered to holistically - spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Our retreats provide a safe place for women to be themselves and share their unique challenges outside of their church and agency.

As of May 2015, we have been in 32 different international locations and hosted 12 retreats in the U.S. for women on furlough. More than 3,700 women have attended a retreat as our guests. The retreat experience is a gift to the retreat attendee, typically underwritten by friends and supporters of our ministry.
