Street Retreats

Street Retreats invite you to step out of the comforts of home in order to deepen your relationship with God and the homeless. The retreat center? The streets of Austin! We offer a variety of Street Retreat experiences throughout the year. See our retreat options and dates below, and come and experience the power of meeting God face to face.

During this guided group experience, participants spend a weekend on the streets of Austin without a bed, a cellphone, credit cards or cash, seeking the face of Christ.

Without a bed, participants find true rest that is found in the Lord. Unplugging from the distraction of a cell phone will allow you to seek Christ with your full attention and affection. Lacking cash, you will remember what it means to enjoy the abundance of God’s grace.

Sign up for the next retreat to find out what God has in store for you as you experience the streets of Austin in a whole new way!
