The Pastor & Spouse Getaway @ Potters Inn
Oct 27 – Nov 1 all-day

Dear Pastor,

Fall in Colorado is BEAUTIFUL! We invite you and your spouse to unplug from the world and restore your soul.  Experience a unique retreat exclusively for pastors and spouses. This retreat is not content driven. Instead, it’s full of beauty, sharing and time to relax. We are passionate about the vitality of your very own soul. After all, you cast a shadow on those you lead including your family. Allow our staff to love on you and facilitate an intimate time of spiritual, emotional, and physical refreshment.

What can you expect?

  • A morning devotional and evening fireside reflection time will frame our days
  • Great meals together with other pastors and spouses
  • A beautiful setting in the Rocky Mountains and time for you to unwind and explore the beauty
  • Experience the care of your own soul

This is a time to unplug yourself from meetings, your phone, email, and noise in general.  Escape with your spouse to see and hear one another. Close the gap in your marriage and simply enjoy caring for one another’s souls.

We offer exceptional accommodations in one of our cabins or the Inn! You and your spouse will enjoy privacy and beauty in your own room. We encourage extended hours of quiet, allowing God’s voice to rise in you again and guide you.

Afternoons are free for:

  • naps
  • sitting in the hot tub
  • walking the prayer trail
  • hiking in nearby state and national parks
  • horse-backing riding
  • many wonderful sightseeing and historic places are nearby

(Some excursions are optional and in addition to your retreat costs.)

Let the staff of Potter’s Inn serve and love you well.

The Soul Care Experience is our premier retreat offering participants an overview of spiritual formation and the care of your soul.  You’ll live in a Benedicine Rhythm of life that is ancient yet very life-giving for modern times. This retreat is ideal for pastors, missionaries, staff members, individuals interested in learning more about deepening their walk with God and relationship with Jesus Christ.

Here’s what we’ll cover in the five day retreat:

  • What is spiritual formation and how does it happen?
  • What is the soul and how do we learn to care for our souls and the souls of others?
  • An overview of spiritual disciplines which are usefull in our life with God.
  • Critical stages and phases of the spiritual life and how to break through “walls” that you have been hitting which prevent progress and growth.
  • Practice of The Daily Office/Divine Hours
  • Why Silence and Solitude are needed in the 21st century and how to use them to care for your soul.
  • How to live in community and reading Bonhoeffer and others who are trailblazers such as Jean Vanier and others.
  • Experience the “Second Book of God” in the glory of Colorado and how to use nature and the heavens to feed your heart and soul.
