Seasons of the Soul unpacks the special rhythms of Jesus’ life that transform ours. Through stories, examples, and classic biblical wisdom, this retreat fans Easter life into flame in the souls of participants.


We all experience critical seasons when we’re poised for God’s new thing to come alive inside. Our seasons of change and transformation are powered by distinct seasons of Jesus’ life and work.

The seasons


Life is good, things are progressing, problems are fixable

Good Friday

Calamity, the death of the old, the burial of the seed

Easter Sunday

God offering new life for my changed situation

The 40 Days

Mourning the death of the old, adjusting to the new


Releasing the old, letting it “ascend” with Jesus


Receiving the fullness of God’s Spirit into my real situation

This retreat helps us see our season as part of a redemptive journey that has meaning in company with Jesus, who can be our guide, having walked this way before us. Comfort and a call forward through the transitions and changes of life and service are explored in Seasons of the Soul.
