Throughout each ministry year, JourneyMates hosts guided Soul Care Retreats. Called JM Mornings Apart and JM Days Apart our retreats are open to anyone yearning for dedicated time and space to simply be with God through silence, solitude, contemplative reflection and prayerful scripture reading. JourneyMates also offers guided Soul Care Retreats specifically for Men called JM2 Mornings Apart.

JourneyMates Retreats are facilitated by trained JourneyMates Facilitators and take place in private homes, churches and other contemplative settings. The 2020-2021 ministry year JourneyMates Retreats are listed below.

JourneyMates also facilitates Soul Care Retreats for leadership teams and volunteer groups of local churches, non-profit ministries, and Christian schools. For more information, please contact our Executive Director, Mary Vandel Young at

Please note: JourneyMates follows local and state Health and Safety Guidelines related to COVID-19. As such, we will offer our retreats either virtually and in person to accommodate guidelines in place at the time of JM Retreats and JM Training Events.  All JM Retreats are in-person events unless otherwise noted.
