God creates amazing variety among His people. Our C2C family of churches has amazing diversity while at the same time being joined relationally on God’s mission together. The church family of Crown Christian Center in Odessa Missouri has many wonderful people, but also a resource “jewel” that many are not aware of.
Years ago there was a seed God birthed among them to build a structure that would serve the greater Body of Christ to hold retreats, getaways, and discipleship events. After many years of building they finally completed their retreat center during the past year. It is an amazing structure! God gave them wisdom in their planning and building in which they seemed to “think of everything” when it comes to providing a getaway place for God’s people.
This past summer the C2C family held the “Evangelism Summit” there. It accommodated about 80 people. All the meetings were held at the retreat center and many of the guests were housed there. All who attended were amazed at the excellence of the accommodations.
Covenant Harvest Church in Pittsburg KS recently held an Elder’s retreat there in July and one of the leaders expressed the facility very accurately.
We have taken several retreats over the years. We have booked vacation homes, bed and breakfast facilities, and hotels. The retreat center in Odessa was much, much, much better than any of them!!! It wasn’t only the physical accommodations that were amazingly superior, but I think it also had to do with the spiritual seed that is in the house. I would encourage any groups among the C2C family to check out and consider having their retreats etc. at the retreat center at Crown Christian in Odessa!
Bud, Frank, Steve, Andy, and the who Odessa Family invites you to check out the retreat center the next time you are planning a retreat or getaway.
