How to Plan a Great Church Retreat

Do you know what the most important part of planning a church retreat is? Obviously you want to find a retreat venue that caters to Christian retreats and values, but there are other important factors to consider. Not all venues are prepared to handle all types of retreats and you also need to think about accommodations and dining plans. Your church retreat’s venue can make the difference between a boring and a great retreat, so considering these factors and picking the best venue is very important.

Having the right venue for your retreat can mean everything. A church retreat and a vacation are not exactly the same thing and therefore when you plan a church retreat there are some factors you need to look for. One way to make it easy to find a good venue for your church retreat is by considering your agenda and the setting you will best accomplish it in. It is often a smart idea to look into a Christian retreat center because this venue will be tailored toward Christian retreats and aligns with your Christian values. Having the right venue ensures that your retreat is well suited to help you accomplish the goal of your retreat.

To choose a venue you should consider the type and demographic your retreat is geared toward. Whether you are planning a couples retreat or a women’s retreat, the venue can play a big role. Also it is important to match your venue to your group because you may end up with a bad experience if you book your women’s Christian retreat at a retreat venue geared toward youth retreats. Matching your venue to the people and purpose you are planning it for can make a big difference which is why you need to ask yourself this and the retreat venue what types of retreat they are best prepared to accommodate.

On top of finding a Christian oriented venue and one that can accommodate for your group, you want to think about some other factors. You should also look into dining options and whether or not your retreat venue is all-inclusive. This is a big factor when budgeting and something that your attendees need to know beforehand. Along with dining, you should know about their recreation activities. You want to give your retreat attendees an opportunity to relax and have fun, so you want to be sure your venue can supply this. Having games, fun classes, watersports, and other recreation activities will help every relax and have more fun while on your retreat. Obviously the content and purpose of your church retreat is the most important part, you still want everyone to have fun while they are there.

If you are stressing out over finding the right church retreat location, you should take a step back and make a few simple considerations. The best place to start is by looking for venues that are oriented toward Christian retreats and are able to accommodate your specific type of retreat. From here you want to look into factors such as recreation, accommodations, and dining options as these are important to ensure your attendees are comfortable and happy. If you consider all of these factors you can be sure that your next church retreat will be the best one yet.
