Retreat Attendees

Who Attends DRM Retreats

Currently, our retreats are exclusively for full time pastors and their spouses and are provided at no cost to our valued guests, but we are unable to accommodate children at our retreats. Deer Ridge Ministries can accommodate several pastors or pastor/spouse couples each week. Pastors in full time ministry may attend by themselves. Married pastors are urged to bring their spouse.
