Would you like to get away for a weekend at a prayer-soaked, Spirit-infused Christian conference center surrounded by stunning redwood trees, streams, and waterfalls? Make a special and powerful connection with God there? Get refreshed, rejuvenated, and recharged? Fill your tank so you can pour out in all the other things you do? Build relationships with people who understand you and want to encourage you, support you, and pray for you? Listen for the Holy Spirit’s guidance and direction on your writing and your life? Make some divine connections? Maybe carve out some uninterrupted writing time in a beautiful, inspiring setting?

Since 1906, Mount Hermon has been a place where people set aside distractions and focus on their relationships with God and with one another. For fifty years, the Mount Hermon Association hosted an annual writers conference where aspiring and established writers, editors, agents, and those involved in various aspects of publishing gathered for training and networking. What they discovered went far beyond tracks, workshops, and appointments. Attendees found kindred spirits and faithful prayer partners. They made friendships that deepened after the event and continued for years. Most important, they met with God in ways not experienced anywhere else.

In 2020, the Mount Hermon Association made the difficult decision to discontinue sponsoring the writers conference. But now you can find rest and restoration, connect with old friends and make new ones, and hear clearly from the Lord at the Christian Writers Retreat at Mount Hermon!

God uses Christian writing in powerful ways for His kingdom. Which means the enemy is going to do whatever he can to stop it. Or at least to water down the message or its effectiveness or its ability to get into the hands of the people who need to read it. So it’s crucial that all of us in the Christian writing community keep our hearts focused on the Lord and that we support and encourage one another.

That’s what the Christian Writers Retreat at Mount Hermon is all about.

You don’t need to do anything in advance to prepare for the retreat except register, plan your transportation,
and pack comfortable clothing.
You won’t need to do anything at the retreat except listen to the Holy Spirit’s promptings and follow them.

But if there’s something you’d like to do at the retreat, you can post to our Facebook group and
find others who want to make the same plans!

You will leave the retreat rested, invigorated, and excited about taking the next step in your writing journey,
confident that it’s precisely where God wants you to go.
And that you have the prayers, support, and encouragement you need to get there.
