Advent Retreat Of Silence

Savor Advent with a unique weekend of listening.

Retreat Overview

Enter the Silence.

Times come when we yearn for more of God than our schedules will allow. We are tired, we are crushed, we are crowded by friends and acquaintances, commitments and obligations. The life of grace is abounding, but we are too busy for it! Even good obligations begin to hem us in.

Madeleine L’Engle writes, “Every so often I need OUT; something will throw me into total disproportion, and I have to get away from everybody-away from all those people I love most in the world – in order to gain a sense of proportion.”
-Emilie Griffin



What To Expect

Our experienced ED, Tiffany Staman, will guide you through a transformative journey of meeting Jesus through silence and solitude.

Come together with other women the first weekend of Advent to spend a weekend in silence. You will not regret carving out this time to listen to God’s voice, experience His love, and move into the rest of the season refreshed and with renewed perspective. A variety of spiritual practices and engaging stations will be provided to guide you throughout the weekend. No experience necessary!

Retreat Leader

Tiffany Staman

Tiffany attended her first Advent Retreat in 2005, and she was instantly hooked. As a driven overachiever who dove headfirst into the holidays with all kinds of unrealistic expectations of herself and others, this retreat became a yearly rhythm to enter into the Advent season differently... intentionally... prayerfully. For more than 15 years, she has facilitated Advent Retreats for men and women to help them enter the season centered on and listening to Jesus.
