Transforming Retreats at Crossroads are designed to help you connect with your true identity, your hidden in Christ with God self. “We believe that when you live from that place, your desires are connected with your true self. The Enneagram is a map we use that helps you discover your “made in the image and likeness of God” from that place, we can discern the desires that lead us to God and desires that lead us away from God. Each person, uniquely made, has desires that can lead to abundant life or abundant misery. We can choose.
“Life as a Christ follower is the discovery of your true identity. The question is, how are you becoming more and more like the one God dreamed of when God created you?” – Scott & Clare Loughrige

A relationship with God grows when we spend time together. God has something to say and time on retreat helps us to discover how we listen and can respond to God’s voice. What could be more important than that?
Our retreat model includes:
- Holy Spirit guided, Scriptural and psychological, elements.
- Short guided segments and time alone to process around the campus are woven throughout the day. You can spend your time alone or in the company of spiritual friends. You can choose!

Experience Transforming Retreats in one of two ways.
Each retreat can either stand alone, or you can participate in a 2-year journey with each retreat building upon the previous sessions. Retreats are themed exploring spiritual formation with the Enneagram. The 2-year journey focuses on living the vision of Romans 12:2 “Be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect,” the shared commitment of investing in “the process by which Christ is formed in us for the glory of God, for the abundance of our own lives, and for the sake of others.”
