Have some questions?
How will you select the families who are eligible to participate in your program?
Families and couples that will attend a retreat at TBRH will be selected from referrals and those who contact through website requests. Each family will be contacted prior to their retreat for a consultation for a needs assessment to create a profile for areas that will be prayed over and discussed during their time in their retreat.
Will family members be allowed to come and go as they please?
TBRH will offer a structured retreat experience that will bring each family together in activities collectively and individually. Though each day the family will have focused areas they will work on with the purpose of bringing them together in unity, they will have the freedom to come and go but it will be done in a manner that is to promote each family member to retreat, rest, enjoy and strengthen each other. Whether they go out of stay in, they will be expected to utilize the handbook provided for them which will give suggestions on outside activities they are encouraged to do while they are on their retreat.
Will the families be allowed to have visitors during their stay?
Due to the nature of the retreat allowing the family to be away from their normal surroundings, to promote family building time and privacy, those attending the TBRH for a scheduled retreat will not be able to have outside visitors during their stay.
How many times can a family come and visit TBRH?
Each family is allowed one retreat visit every other year. A family can schedule to come and pray together at the chapel (TRCN church) if they desire a place to come together after their retreat for family prayer to continue their spiritual connection with one another.
