CLOSER: A Marriage Retreat

For Christian Couples

Upcoming Dates

About the Retreat

Dialogue is essential in any good relationship.  What does that look like in relationship with God and your spouse? It is quite exciting to see how simple the steps are!

We invite you to CLOSER: A Marriage Retreat for Christian Couples.

CLOSER is for couples who are primarily looking for a weekend of pursuing growth and true fellowship together as a couple. The richness of the Greens’ 58 year marriage is an added bonus, as they teach and model what they have learned.

This retreat will provide:

  • Guidelines on how to dialogue in scripture and prayer that could be life-changing.
  • Teaching is practical and transferable.
  • Discover the principles of goals and desires.
  • Sessions are short – private time is plentiful.
  • The beauty of the property is perfect for connecting with our creator and each other.

In the words of Mark Batterson, “A change of place + a change of pace = a change in perspective.” We hope to see you at Closer.

If you’d like to come earlier or stay after your retreat dates, lodging is available at a Programs discounted rate. Please call our reservations line at 719-265-7050 for details.

Retreat Leaders

Terry and Leah Green

CLOSER is led by Terry and Leah Green. Their marriage of 58 years has flourished into a reliable source for wisdom, development and renewal for hundreds of marriages. They can relate to the seasons of life as parents, grandparents, business owners and ministry partners – ordinary, everyday people who take joy in sharing that God’s plan is life-giving and fruitful!

Terry and Leah were church-goers for the first 10 years of their marriage. While attending a retreat at Glen Eyrie to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary they were introduced to the term “Discipleship in the Marriage”.  As they made a committed decision to know and follow Christ, life changed and the most amazing journey began. A good marriage started to take shape as a godly one – their friendship became fellowship that gave a path to pursue their purpose as believers in Jesus. In 2005 the Lord called them to minister on staff with the Navigators at Glen Eyrie with Marriage GetAways.  Over the past 18 years they have seen many couples move “Closer” to each other, and God, as they ask themselves, are we two Christians married or do we have a Christian marriage?


Weekend attire is casual and be prepared to do lots of walking. Our weather can be unpredictable, so pack layers. And don’t forget to bring your Bible!
