The GETAWAY WITH GOD Christian Meditation Retreat is going to teach you the life-changing practice of Christ-centered meditation, a spiritual practice that many Christians have never done before, but that is encouraged throughout the scripture.

Yet not the success of the world, the success of a loving, joyful, and thriving relationship with Jesus Christ.
