“Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads,
and I will give you rest.” Mathew 11:28 (NCV)

In the busyness of our lives, there is often little time to be still, to listen for God and to hear what He is saying to us.

We travel from one activity to the next or one thought to the next, rarely inviting Jesus to be a part of what we do simply because we are rushed in our thinking and in our schedules. There are so many distractions.

​Dovehouse Ministries is a Christian retreat and spiritual direction ministry which offers many different opportunities in which a person can learn to grow in relationship with God, take time apart with God to listen to and for Him.

Quiet Day

Quiet Days offer a day away when longer silent retreats are not possible. It is an opportunity to be quiet with the Scriptures and your journal, to rest and to seek God away from the busyness of life.

Weekend Silent Retreat

Come away. Take time away from the noise and distraction of everyday life to rest, and listen for God. Enjoy lovely places to walk, rest and pray.

Spiritual Direction Training

Become a Dovehouse-certified spiritual director. Help others explore silence and navigate their spiritual journey.

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence…We need silence to be able to touch souls.
