Be a Guest with Us on a Transforming Community Retreat

The following retreats are each part of an ongoing Transforming Community®. There are a limited number of guest spaces available as to not disrupt the community’s experience together. Whether you are looking for a taste of this experience or you simply need a break from ordinary life to spend some extraordinary time with God, you may choose to attend a single open retreat as a guest.

The cost to attend a single retreat is $625.

Once you’ve submitted your preferred retreat, we will contact you with more information about attending. If you have questions at any point, you can contact transformingcommunity@transformingcenter.org.
