As I look ahead to the end of 2016, all of our retreats are full, and by the end of the year we will have completed 69 retreats with over 970 alumni. Actually, it is with mixed emotions that I tell you all of our retreats are full and with a waiting list. As a ministry we are thankful we have the opportunity to come alongside these hurting people, but also we are constantly reminded of how much pain there is in this life journey.
Our Spark team consists of only three full time staff, multiple part time staff, a host of retreat facilitators and the most loyal financial supporters, blog subscribers and friends that we could imagine.
We want to say “thank you” for cheering us on, investing in this work and for praying for us. WE SO NEED YOU!
SPARK OF LIFE WILL add more retreat dates as funding allows. Below you will see our 2017 dates as of today. OUR MODEL WILL CONTINUE TO BE THAT WE DO NOT CHARGE ANYONE WHO ATTENDS A SPARK RETREAT. “ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GET THERE.” In 2017 we would very much like to host a retreat on the East Coast. Something in North Carolina, South Carolina or Florida would be ideal.
Our incredible lodging from Montana to Alaska and Colorado has been given as a gift to Spark of Life to use. We are so thankful for such gracious generosity.
Many beach or mountain homes sit empty during the off-season. We would need a large home with at least 8 bedrooms, all with private baths. If you know of someone who would be willing to donate the use of their beach house or mountain home for a long weekend please let us know. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Below please find our 2017 dates for our Spark of Life Grief Recovery Retreats. We will add more as funding allows.
