He’s faithful no matter the storm.

Your perspective and soul will be warm.
For God will not leave you alone here:
In chaos your courage will form.”

Retreats & Events

In this world, we all have trouble now and then.  But what happens when a crisis of life-altering proportions threatens to break us?  Troubled seasons take various forms: a health crisis, financial hardship, a damaged marriage, a young child who isn’t developing with peers, an older child whose heart has run astray, an aging parent, addiction, or depression.  

Larry & Lisa Jamieson tell the heartwarming story of how their family faced extraordinary challenges raising their severely handicapped daughter, Carly, while being carried in the embrace of Christ-centered community.  They share life-giving lessons about how the power of love and prayer can bring seemingly impossible circumstances to the place where healing begins, Christ becomes tangible, and countless lives are changed forever.

No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. 1 JOHN 4:12

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 5 For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.

Women’s Retreats & Events

Sometimes the pace of life leaves us feeling like we’re spinning out of control. Children have us going in multiple directions. Households require managing. Careers need to be balanced with many other demands. Even retirement keeps many women running ragged! Will we ever experience the peace and rest we crave in body, mind or spirit?

Lisa Jamieson knows something about chaos! She is the mother of three children and her youngest daughter is severely handicapped. This retreat brings encouragement to audiences striving for balance and clear priorities. Women explore practical tools for experiencing the kind of rest God desires for us even when life’s seasons can be very challenging.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. HEBREWS 13:8


Men’s Retreats & Events

Have you ever felt like you were being lashed by the wind and the rain in your life or do you know someone else who is?  Storms seem like they are spiraling all around us these days.  Jesus says that “in this world you will have trouble” (John 16:33) and we all know that to be true.  But why does it seem like the storms are increasingly frequent these days? Have you ever asked, “haven't I been through enough?”

There are nearly 300 instances in the Bible where God is linked to storms or clouds. Perhaps the use of the storm metaphor is one of the best ways God can help us understand His glory, majesty and power. He also uses storms in the Bible to demonstrate how he works transformation in our lives. What a mighty and loving God we serve!

Larry Jamieson has witnessed many storms in his life — from marriage trials, health issues, financial struggles and unemployment to the overwhelming challenges of raising a daughter with severe disabilities. Larry has seen how the Lord works in and through the storms of our lives to mold and shape us — to make us more Christ-like.

This high-energy retreat utilizes a dynamic combination of Larry’s testimony with worship, scripture and personal reflection.  Whether you are in the midst of a storm or in between stormy seasons, this retreat will help you find God in the midst of the tempest and will bring you encouragement that God plans to do great and marvelous things through your most raging challenges.

God's voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding. JOB 37:5

The LORD Almighty will come with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with windstorm and tempest and flames of a devouring fire. ISAIAH 29:6
