CLOSER: A Marriage Prayer Retreat

For Christian Couples

CLOSER : definition - being near and intimate (rather than drifting and distant)

Dialogue is to relationship what blood is to the body ~ dialogue brings life to a relationship like blood brings life to a body.  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 Prayer Retreat for Couples.

This retreat has the answer in how to create a relationship already designed for you!

  • You will be given guidelines on how to dialogue in prayer that could be life-changing.
  • 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 pace plus a change of place equals 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 & 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 served the Navigator ministry as associate staff for 10 years in NM while they worked together as insurance agents in their own business. They came on full time staff with the Navigators in 2006, moving to Colorado Springs to direct the Marriage GetAway retreats for the next 15 years.

They began the CLOSER Prayer Retreat for married couples in 2010 and added that to the schedule along with Marriage GetAway until 2021 when Mike and Becky McNamee became directors of Marriage GetAway. It is their joy to partner with Mike and Becky as both couples invest in marriages in all ages and stages of life.
