An Oasis of Spiritual Refreshment

Located on the banks of the beautiful Manatee River in east Manatee County, Florida, Christian Retreat is a year-round conference center, resort, home of the Family Church and so much more.

Since 1968, Christian Retreat has hosted the nation’s top Christian leaders, bringing believers together from all denominations and cultures, to be refreshed and strengthened in their faith.



Christian Retreat hosts year round conferences with some of the nation’s top-named Christian leaders. Our year begins with “Homecoming”, and a 10-week “Institute of Ministry” leading into the “Winter Conference Season”. We also host our annual “Thrive, Women’s Conference”, “The Feast of Tabernacles”, “YEX, Youth Summer Camp”, and “Kamp KZ, Kids Day Summer Camps”, among others.
