Our Time Together

We have intentionally kept the itinerary simple and leisurely to create space for you to explore, connect and rest.

The Table

The table will be at the center of our time as we
share in good food, stories and laughter. An iconic
and central place in our Christian tradition, we are
confident Jesus will meet us here.

Staying at the Farm

There are 10 available beds located in three different
structures all within walking distance of one another
on the property. We have planned for each participant
to have their own bedroom with access to a full
bathroom and kitchen. Upon registration, please let
us know if you would be open to having a roommate
or are interested in sleeping under the stars. This will
help us as we continue to make arrangements. All
linens, towels and meals are provided.
