Marble Retreat offers eight carefully designed days of individual and couples Christian counseling and group counseling. Initial hours are spent in assessing your history and needs, sharing your story. Based on issues identified, subsequent counseling is designed to deal with those concerns.
Our program is modeled after the Intensive Psychotherapy Center at the Mayo Clinics, Rochester, MN, as an alternative to months of conventional weekly counseling. It offers the added benefit of working with counselors who specialize in working with pastors and missionaries and themselves have lived the ministry life.
Some of the issues we have found our program can help with include, but are not limited to: burnout, dealing with stress, marital issues -including recovery from affairs, problems with intimacy, conflict resolution, and communication, depression and anxiety, spiritual struggles, grief and loss, ministry and life transitions, rediscovering God’s call and passion in ministry.
While Marble Retreat’s program is well suited for crisis situations it also is very helpful for those in ministry who are looking for refreshment and renewal and are looking to prepare themselves for their next step in ministry.
Retreat guests come from many denominational, ethnic and geographic backgrounds with one unifying bond — they recognize the need for God’s restoring touch for their broken spirits. Our committed staff of Christian counselors want to help them find healing, transformation, new insights and more effective coping skills.
