An ideal venue is 60-90 minutes away from where most people live to create a “getaway experience”. This also enhances the experience by removing participants from daily pressures and concerns, allowing them to focus on God’s personal message. That said, many hosts hold events much closer to home and have fantastic experiences there.
Ideal venues include retreat centers, lake houses, ranches, boutique hotels, beach houses or golf villas.
A venue that feels like a living room is preferable to business style rooms. Chairs or other furniture in a circle is all we need. No tables. This arrangement facilitates a group feeling and greatly enhances discussion. A separate room should be available for meals. Perhaps a comfortable apartment living room or an inviting lodge family room.
Once a venue is booked, contact firstname.lastname@example.org with details. At this point, we will provide you with an electronic invitation to send to those you plan to invite.
