Debriefing is a Vital Part of Your Wellbeing.
Life and ministry can be fast and furious, leaving little to no time for reflection and assessment.
It's important to take time and consider where you are.
What it Looks Like
All our debriefings are on an individualized basis and can be scheduled all times throughout the year. We offer this to individuals, couples, families, and teams.
Safe Place hosts 3-day intensives at the scenic Common Ground Farm and Retreat, located in Leigh Valley, PA. This time usually consists of morning and afternoon sessions, with evenings set aside for rest and reflection. If you were desiring to debrief as a family, we usually provide two staff members, including a specialist for the children. A private room and food are provided for you during your stay with us.
For anyone seeking care with Safe Place throughout Europe, Asia or Africa, we've partnered with YWAM in Northern Ireland as our Europen basecamp for care. Pricing for services provided in Ireland will vary. If traveling to the Lehigh Valley USA, or Northern Ireland are not feasible to you, we will travel to you! Fill out the contact form below for more info.
Throughout your time with us, we'll help guide you, your family or team through a reflective process, enabling you to look with reality upon the highlights and disappointments of your particular season.
- You can expect 5-6 hours a day of direct care with a trained professional with ministry experience. During this time staff will guide you in developing a timeline of ministry, expectations and outcomes, conflict with others in service, moving forward and a re-calculating of life and ministry.
- For children who may be in need, we have a warm and excellent staff who will provide care and company to them.
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.
Our pricing includes direct care, lodging, and all your meals prepared by Chef Roy to your specific needs.
*with specialized direct counselor care for the children (price may vary with the number of children)
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.
