What can pastors expect?
Restorative rest does not happen when we do nothing. It comes when we do something significant. Broom Tree allows pastors to recalibrate and heal on multiple levels. Our retreats have no schedule, only an agenda that supports rest, reflection and experiences with beauty. Each guest has permission to sleep and reflect, finding real restoration.
Many couples have referred to our retreats as the best week of their marriage. They remember why they fell in love. Pastors also remember why they were called to ministry. Reflecting on these “starting points” in our lives allows us to gain clarity about the future. Prayer, scripture reading and solitude are essential to fruitful reflection.
Beauty in God’s Creation
Rest and reflection are made complete with beauty. Broom Tree retreats provide optional experiences with hiking, lakes, paddle boats, canoes, swimming and bike trails. Guests have access to scripture, music, art, literature and movies. The retreat center properties are in beautiful natural settings. We provide an opportunity to stop the hurriedness of life and actually see the beauty of God’s creation.
