A Spiritual Retreat for Christian Grandparent Couples

About the Retreat

Is good grand-parenting good enough? Our culture has defined a good grandparent, but what does the Bible say?

Legacy of Faith is a unique, uplifting retreat for grandparents desiring a spiritual legacy of lasting inheritance. Held at the beautiful Glen Eyrie Conference Center in Colorado Springs, it is filled with biblical teaching, encouraging fellowship, practical/applicable tools, intentional time and space to refresh each couple.

Topics include:

  • What is a Legacy of Faith? What are God’s directives and what are our Biblical roles and responsibilities as grandparents
  • Cross-Generational Connections: Methods of communicating among and between generations
  • Overcoming barriers: Long-distance grand-parenting, prodigal children/grandchildren, spiritual resistance, past regrets and failures
  • Maximizing generational influence and impact moving forward
