The mission of the Oceans Retreat Center is to be a place which seeks to develop authentic love relationships between the Father and His children, inspiring them to live out their Kingdom calling in the world.

Our vision is to be a community of:

Prayer

“These I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer”
– Isaiah 56:7/Matthew 21:13

This will be a gathering place for pastors, leaders, and intercessors from all nations to worship and seek the face of the Father.

1. Weekly prayer meetings
2. Worship events
3. Prayer events

Discipleship

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have command you…”
– Matthew 28:19-20

This will be a place of learning to walk as disciples of Jesus Christ and encountering His Kingdom heart.

1. Teaching/training events held for leaders in townships and community.
2. Mission/Vision teams from around the world and community that will stay on campus.

Retreat

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest…”
– Matthew 11:28

This will be a place to experience the Spirit’s voice of love, healing, and leading.

1. A place for ministry leaders to rest and be healed.
2. Provide spiritual direction and coaching.
3. Provide retreats for churches, schools, business and other groups.
