Earlier this year, Mercy Multiplied began piloting a brand-new program on its St. Louis property. The Keys to Freedom Retreat is a 5-day retreat for women 18 and older. Melanie Wise, Senior Director, Outreach shared, “Over the past couple of years, the amount of people seeking healing and freedom in Christ has greatly increased, and we wanted to respond to the need! We developed the Keys to Freedom Retreat as a way for people to step away from their regular rhythms of life, connect with Jesus, and dive into some of Mercy’s core principles of freedom.”
There is a reservation fee of $50 and participants are responsible for their travel to and from the retreat center. Food and lodging are provided, as well as teaching sessions, worship, and small group discussion time, with ample time for personal reflection, rest, and refreshment.
Excitement and demand for the retreat resulted in the first weeks of 2023 filling up quickly. The feedback received from women attending the retreat has been incredible, generating a lot of excitement around this new opportunity to help more people!
Wise adds, “Throughout the pilot process, we have been blown away by the testimonies and ways that the Lord has met retreat participants in powerful (and sometimes unexpected) ways. We cannot wait to see how God moves in the lives of those who attend in the coming weeks, months, and years!”
These are just a few of the responses we have received:
I cannot even explain how wonderful this week was – life-changing for me! I will recommend it to lots of other people.
The vulnerability and the presence of the Holy Spirit at work was great!
The sessions, handouts, leaders, staff, worship, other women here, fun activities, food…it was as if God was in every little piece of it all!
A wonderful and amazing weekend!! Good balance of serious devotional time and relaxation, laugh, and get-to-know-others time. Can’t say enough about it. It was truly a God-ordained week.
I have attended many [retreats] over the years – the most wonderful experience yet.
