CLOSER: A Marriage Prayer Retreat

For Christian Couples

Do you crave spiritual intimacy and better communication in your marriage? Do you find it difficult to have Jesus be the focus and mission of your relationship with your spouse? We invite you to join us at Closer: A Prayer Retreat for Couples.

Closer is a uniquely crafted prayer retreat for couples to seek after God and His Heart and purposes for you individually and as a couple.  Whether you are mature in your faith or new to the journey, Closer provides a sacred time and place to grow and seek wisdom in your marriage.

  • Meeting times provide context + instruction for how to spend time seeking God in prayer.
  • You will be encouraged as you spend time with other couples pursuing the same things.
  • This weekend will provide room to breathe. Our programs team has provided suggestions for optional activities to add to your experience together.

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.

Based on state and local county protocols, we have chosen at Glen Eyrie to no longer require any guests or staff to wear a facemask.  We also recognize that guests will be resuming travel and group activities with a variety of diverse experiences with COVID-19 and differing comfort levels. These are unique times to navigate.  We encourage guests to take individual measures to help stop the spread of illness, including remaining at home and not participating in group activities if experiencing symptoms of illness, practicing social distancing, hand hygiene, and mask usage as an individual choice if needed. 

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!

Glen Eyrie Programs require payment in full at the time of reservation. Reservations cancelled or rescheduled at least 14 days prior to the start date will be charged a 10% fee. Reservations cancelled or rescheduled within 14 days of the start date will be charged a 50% fee and have a Glen Eyrie gift card issued for the remaining 50%. Reservations cancelled within 3 days of the event date will be charged the full amount.
