Broom Tree’s free spiritual retreats allow pastors and their spouses to share in Elijah’s broom tree experience. Guests are invited to trade the busyness and intensity of pastoral leadership for physical and spiritual rest and rejuvenation. At Broom Tree retreats it is possible for pastors to find alone time with God. Our retreats are designed with both married and single pastors in mind.

Psalm 46:10 describes what is made possible at our retreats,

“Cease your striving and know that I am God.”

Beautiful Central Wisconsin Woodlands!

Located just west of the small city of Green Lake Wisconsin, this stately 900+ acre site has been a retreat home to Christians for 75 years. Plenty of walking trails and places to enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. The property abounds with rock walled roads, prayer towers, benches by the lake and many places for times of reflection and prayer.

The gracious suites in Bauer Lodge have a living room and bedroom separated by full
bath and closet. A hospitality room is available for playing games with new friends or
just sitting and reading.

PASTOR RETREATS Sunday – Friday 

THE GOAL The purpose or goal of the retreat is to provide time and space for Pastors and their spouses to intentionally spend time alone with Jesus. Since adults learn most beneficially through experience, the week provides guides with just enough direction to be helpful.

THE WEEK is limited to 12 couples or 18 couples (all from different churches). In addition to a renewed awareness of God’s presence and call for them as believers, it will give pastor couples time for soul care, prayer and study.

THE COST for this week is paid for by donations from individuals, churches, foundations and several fund raising events that Broom Tree Ministries offers.  This is a free gift to the pastor couple and includes all food, lodging and program materials.

HOW TO SIGN UP Pastors are asked to sign up on this website.  Churches are encouraged to contribute to the cost of this retreat as a sign of their appreciation of all that their pastor does for them. Contributions can be made on the DONATE page or mailed to Broom Tree Ministries.
