Phoenix * Arizona


Join us for a weekend of Sharing Meetings, Breakout Sessions, Fun Times, Prayer, Praise, and Worship that focus on Jesus's grace over our addictions.


We have two goals for the retreat:

1)      Provide a positive spiritual experience for WELS members who are: (a) in recovery from a substance abuse disorder, pornography addiction, or a mental health disorder; (b) have a loved-one in recovery; or (c) struggle with any habitual sin.

2)      Equip attendees to develop and improve recovery ministries in their home churches.

Sponsored with a generous grant from the Antioch Foundation.


Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
— Romans 12:12
