THE HOPE RANCH
A SACRED SPACE TO ENCOUNTER GOD
We provide spiritual retreats for individuals and small groups who desire to hear God more clearly, away from the distractions of everyday life. We offer you a quiet place to practice the spiritual disciplines with fresh rhythms of joy and delight in Christ.
Take a silent getaway to unplug, break from daily routine, and focus on what’s most important in this world – your relationship with God. Spiritual retreats at The Hope Ranch give you the space and solitude to focus on your Creator and his deep love for you.
In the busyness of life, how do you live a life that cultivates intimacy with God? How do you learn to hear the voice of the Savior in the noise of everyday life?
Each two-day retreat at The Hope Ranch is focused on spiritual practices intended to help you experience God’s presence more deeply.
If you have been disillusioned with Christianity or hurt by the church, a semi-silent retreat is the perfect place to find healing and restoration for your soul.
Take your team on a two-day retreat and offer them the space to reconnect with God and one another.
The team retreat is the perfect place for you to deepen your relationship with your small group and your women leadership team.
We welcome inquiries about customizing a retreat to personal goals or group needs.
The Hope Ranch is situated in the quiet NW suburbs of Chicago where a variety of activities can be enjoyed: horse riding at close-by stables, kayaking, walking, biking, bonfire, meditation pond, outside games, gardening, and more.
The Hope Ranch is an outstanding farm on 5 acres with stocked pond, barn, garden, and a beautiful lawn with walking paths. Retreat guests will share rooms and bathrooms but will find sufficient space throughout the home and property to focus on being alone with God.
The Hope Ranch is located only 25 miles from O’Hare Airport and 40 miles NW of Chicago in the quiet suburb of Barrington, Illinois.
The Hope Ranch is about as good as it gets for retreats. The setting is beautiful, calming, yet full of interest. Good walks, good sunrises. The interior is spacious and inviting, the food delicious and the atmosphere has a quiet depth that holds people well, encouraging whatever exploration they have come for, through a workshop or a personal retreat.
