The Abiding Retreat
The Abiding Retreat is built on the truths revealed in John 15 - Jesus is the Vine, The Father is the Vinedresser, and we are the Branches. Moving through scripture, we will discover God’s intended plan for intimate relationship with Him personally, how to walk in unity as husband and wife, and His desire to produce supernatural fruit in every facet of our lives (marriage, family, business, ministry, etc). Each person will need to bring a cross reference Bible. A workbook and journal will be provided. The material is covered in a super casual, interactive way, and there is intentional down time to relax and enjoy each other as couples.

Abiding Retreat Story
The Abiding Retreat material and format was created by Rich Case - https://afjministry.com - who serves as a spiritual and business consultant to Christian leaders around the world. We have been assisting Rich and wife Linda with their retreats for the past 10 years. The insights we have gleaned and applied have made a profound difference in our marriage and ministry. For the past 5 years, Susanne and I have been leading our own retreats for people in our relational and ministry network. We are also a part of a team of leaders under the Cases who facilitate retreats for other kingdom organizations.
