Midwest Christian Retreat Centers: Five Unique Facilities Each Offering the Ideal Space for Meetings & Events

Midwest Christian Retreat Centers: Five Unique Facilities Each Offering the Ideal Space for Meetings & Events
The purpose of the Midwest Christian Retreat Network is to provide the ideal get-a-way, amenities, service, and meeting facilities with coordinated event planning, affordable pricing and fantastic hospitality, unlike anywhere else.

Customer service at a Midwest Christian Retreat property begins with the understanding of the importance of focused off-site ministry events. This is accomplished by offering packages that are simple, affordable and all-inclusive. In addition, the professional planning team works with planners to coordinate every aspect of the event. The MCR onsite teams have experience that ranges from pastors and ministry leaders, to event planning, so they understand the importance of the mission aspects of events and can assist with meeting goals every step of the way.

Recreational amenities abound at all five properties. Basic recreation includes swimming, fitness centers, game rooms, hiking trails, athletic fields, hayrides, bonfires and so much more. Specific adventure recreation can be found at all five properties and includes ropes courses, zip lining, and climbing towers. At a Midwest Christian Retreat property the recreational opportunities encourage guests to restore, renew, and reconnect.

Midwest Christian Retreat Network has five properties located throughout the Midwest and each distinct property offers a full menu of food, lodging, recreation, team building, meeting facilities and unparalleled customer service:
