Psalm 46:10 says, 'Be still, and know that I am God.' Proverbs 8:17 says 'those who seek me diligently find me.' God can speak to us anywhere, but we are a society of busy people with many distractions. A place of serenity in the beauty of creation is ideal for the transforming work God desires to do in us. The Richard Bush Renewal Center is a sacred space for intimate size retreats and sabbaticals as well as individuals and couples. We offer Life on Life Spiritual Formation training, Making Peace with your Past (restorative) retreats, and Honoring the Body retreats, which focuses on caring for the physical body. Material for self-guided retreats is available as well. The center also accommodates groups and individuals looking for a setting for their own retreats and sabbaticals. There are gathering spaces that will accommodate groups up to 25 as well as many areas for reflection inside and outside in the beauty of God's creation. We now have a path with
a cross station and 3 reflection benches. A prayer Labyrinth is coming soon!

Dr Richard Bush
The Renewal Center bears the name of Dr Richard Bush, a humble servant of God who dedicated his life to helping others be spiritually formed by the nature and character of Christ. Dr Bush served as a local church pastor with the Christian and Missionary Alliance for thirty-one years, as a District Superintendent for 12 years, and held positions at the National office of the C&MA in Leadership Development. Richard believed we need to deal with the issues beneath the surface that affect our heart, soul, mind, strength and love for others. He impacted many lives for Christ before he went home to be with the Lord on June 25th, 2020 but his legacy lives on in the Life on Life Formation program. Through it, he taught that spiritual formation happens incrementally over time with others and for others. We honor the work God accomplished through Richard by naming the center after him and providing a place for God to continue the work.
