Coast of Maine Sailing Retreat Ministry

Welcome to Broad Reach Ministries

A Soul Care Retreat Ministry

Our Mission: offer soul nurturing and inspirational escapes to energize pastors, disciples, seekers and the faithful serving the body of Christ.

Worship Enrichment & Soul Care for Pastors

Each Worship Enrichment & Soul Care Retreat offers pastors a unique opportunity to gather with a small group of colleagues to develop preaching & worship leading skills, share and collect seasonal liturgies, sermon stories, theological insights and meaningful rituals.

Spiritual Direction & Soul Care

Pulling out of the routine to pray, reflect and listen in a new space and in a new way helps us to better discern the winds of the Spirit. Gather with friends and open yourself to the questions of where and how God is opening up transition & transformation possibilities.
