We take pastors into the wild of Alaska where they can unplug, refresh, refocus, & renew.
Expected Completion of Lodge: 2020
Why an application?
RenewU has limited availability and therefore has an application process. Pastors can apply themselves or someone can nominate them. Churches, individuals, or the pastors themselves can sponsor the retreat.
What a retreat could look like:
Sunday: Travel and arrive in Fairbanks Alaska
Monday: Head out to Chatanika facility, relaxing afternoon
Tuesday-Friday: Combination of offered activities and rest
Saturday: Exploring Fairbanks and surrounding areas
Sunday: Attend church, brunch with debrief, and travel home
*Pastors and wives only
Typical Cost: $2,000
This cost covers the room and board for a pastor and wife for a typical week-long RenewU trip, adventures we provide, and local (Fairbanks) travel. *Airfare to Fairbanks not included. *There may be additional charges if RenewU sets up external adventures that are beyond our scope (ex: Valdez fishing charter, sightseeing flights, etc.)
Duration: One week
The typical retreat is from Sunday - Sunday. We can work with you on times and duration. This plans for one day of travel on each end of the retreat.
Our week-long retreats are customized to the attendees to include the prime combination of Alaskan adventure and rest. Pastors are encouraged to bring their spouse along.
