Marble Retreat offers eight carefully designed days of group and individual Christian counseling for no more than eight people. Each person has three one-hour sessions of individual counseling as well as twenty-seven hours of group counseling with highly qualified Christian counselors. Initial hours are spent in assessing your history and needs. 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 focused work with like-minded colleagues (fellow clergy and/or Christians).
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.
