Special Note for Families
While we do provide specialized care for children during the debrief process, we recognize small children do not always benefit from this time and traveling with small children can be a burden. Safe Place does not provide childcare outside of sessions with an SPM staff member. If families assess that children would not be able to join parents during a session and are not of age to be left alone we suggest the following:
- Consider having children stay with trusted friends or family while parents attend
the debrief in PA
- If leaving children or finding overnight care is a burden; consider requesting that Safe Place come to a location convenient for you where there is trusted daytime childcare while parents participate in the debrief
WE HAVE FOUND THAT DEBRIEFING CREATES A SACRED AND UPBUILDING TIME FOR PASTORS, MINISTRY LEADERS, MISSIONARIES, COUPLES, TEAMS, AND INDIVIDUALS WHO NEED TO PULL AWAY AND RE-CENTER.
WE ALSO OFFER
These are overnight and day retreats for an individual, couple, or teams that help center themselves spiritually and relationally. The times are guided by scriptural reflections, time of silence and meditation and one on one time with one of our staff for processing. This is an excellent time to pull away from the pace of life and work to quiet our souls. Please contact us for pricing for Guided Retreats.
