Prayerful Planning

Do you ever feel overextended or overwhelmed?  Do you feel distracted or like something important is missing in the work you are doing? Are you working harder but falling farther behind?  Do you feel disconnected from the work you do on a daily basis.  The Prayerful Planning Retreat is designed to help you  integrate the desires of your heart with the work you do.  This retreat will give you time and space to hear from God and prioritize your life and calendar in a way that flows out of that calling. Use the form below to sign-up.

Stages of Development

The spiritual journey is more than just twists and turns of coincidences and self-discipline. It is a life of learning how to follow as God leads us toward a divinely determined destination. How we get there requires guides and a map. In this retreat we will unroll the map that marks out the terrain of the stages of spiritual development which ancient guides have left to us. Looking at the various stages of spiritual development will be an opportunity for self-evaluation as well as gaining deeper awareness of the Father’s heart for each of those who choose to follow His Son as the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  This retreat will be led by Craig Babb, Director of Rhythm of Grace Ministries; a Center for Spiritual Formation in the KC area. Fill out the form below to sign up.

Holy Yoga

A yoga retreat is a great way to refresh and rejuvenate your spirit. During the weekend, four different yoga classes will be offered, along with plenty of time to explore the 600 acres of Youthfront LaCygne. Enjoy delicious vegetarian meals. The retreat is limited to 25 people. All levels are welcome, and no prior yoga experience is needed. Jenny cultivates a safe nurturing environment while encouraging individuals to be fully present in the moment. To sign up, use the form below.


Perhaps the complexity of life and the constant saturation of noise, information, and demands for your attention has caused you to desire a place of stillness and silence. Perhaps you long to live like Jesus who often would withdraw into the wilderness to commune with God and the Holy Spirit. At the silent retreat, a small group of people (not more than 18) will come together for the practice of silence and centering prayer. LaCygne is a 600+ acre retreat destination with ample room for exploring the outdoors as well as space to sit quietly and contemplate. The centering prayer practice will be introduced from the beginning and will be suitable for people of all experience levels, including people who are learning about it for the first time.
