The Center for Ministry offers periodic spiritual formation retreats in several formats and for several audiences. Some are prayer retreats shaped around particular spiritual disciplines. Some are silent retreats intended to help us clear away the noise and clutter of daily life and listen to God. Many of the spiritual formation opportunities featured here are designed to sustain and nourish a community devoted to spiritual practice, and include spiritual disciplines, worship, the arts, teaching, and time for rest and care of the soul. Our staff and volunteers will also gladly work with you to design a unique retreat for your group or congregation. Contact our office to schedule a consultation.
Join yogis from across the state of Mississippi for a rejuvenating Memorial Day Weekend. The weekend will include opening and closing worship, yoga classes, fellowship and relaxation opportunities, and workshops on to engage your whole mind, body, and spirit in prayer.

About Days Apart
Jesus invited his disciples, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest awhile.” (Mark 6:31) In the same spirit, we invite you to come join us for a mini-retreat.
Each Day Apart features unstructured time for prayer, rest, spiritual direction, and enjoying the natural world,. The day's leader offers times of reflection, instruction in a spiritual discipline, and worship. All are scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The cost is $30.
Bottled water, coffee and a light snack will be provided. Please bring your own lunch, unless you choose to practice the discipline of fasting for the day. Participation in group gatherings is optional; those who wish to may spend the entire day in solitude.
Information about upcoming Days Apart will be posted here when available.
We welcome you to come away and rest in God’s presence.
