In the simplest form, to ‘Retreat’ means ‘to withdraw’. In the Christian understanding; having a retreat refers to the conscious act of withdrawing from the normal life and setting a time to focus on God as we examine our lives; plan and re-evaluate our purpose, and set-goals. At Overcomers Assembly, retreats are part of our tradition. We have consciously set aside two (2) weekends during the year, in January and in September to have the corporate retreats. This means that as a church, we leave the hustles and bustles of life to spend quality time in a quiet place, our minds focused on God. We step aside from the normal routine, often filled with the noise and pressures of our social and domestic responsibilities. We purpose to seek the heart of God.
At the retreats, we spend quality time reading our bibles, in prayer, listening to spiritual messages, and sharing in groups. We also spend significant time alone, meditating and planning. The goal is to be as fully present as we can be to God, to ourselves and to the moment – so that in keeping company with God, we can maximize on His wisdom and guidance in our lives – career, family and spiritual walk. These retreat opportunities are priceless. All church members are welcome.
