2022 Retreat

Since 1906, Mount Hermon has been a place where people set aside distractions and focus on their relationships with God and with one another.

For fifty years, the Mount Hermon Association hosted an annual writers conference where writers, editors, agents, and those involved in various aspects of publishing gathered for training and networking. What they discovered went far beyond tracks, workshops, and appointments. Attendees found kindred spirits and faithful prayer partners. They made friendships that deepened after the event and continued for years. Most important, they met with God in ways not experienced anywhere else.

In 2020, the Mount Hermon Association made the difficult decision to discontinue sponsoring the writers conference. But now you can find rest and restoration, connect with old friends and make new ones, and hear clearly from the Lord at the Christian Writers Retreat at Mount Hermon!

Spend a few days surrounded by stunning redwood trees, streams, and waterfalls. Make a special and powerful connection with God. Get refreshed, rejuvenated, and recharged. Fill your tank so you can pour out in all the other things you do. Build relationships with people who understand you and want to encourage you, support you, and pray for you. Listen for the Holy Spirit’s guidance and direction on your writing and your life. Maybe carve out some uninterrupted writing time in this beautiful, inspiring setting.

God uses Christian writing in powerful ways for His kingdom. Which means the enemy is going to do whatever he can to stop it. Or at least to water down the message or its effectiveness or its ability to get into the hands of the people who need to read it. So it’s crucial that all of us in the Christian writing community keep our hearts focused on the Lord and that we support and encourage one another.

That’s what the Christian Writers Retreat at Mount Hermon is all about.

You will leave this retreat rested, invigorated, and excited about taking the next step in your writing journey,
confident that it’s precisely where God wants you to go. And that you have the prayers, support, and encouragement you need to get there.

Can't attend in person?

How about having your own personal Mount Hermon writers retreat, at home or at a favorite relaxing location, alone or with a few writer friends?

During the full days of the retreat, November 4-5, we’ll be live streaming our main-group gatherings: worship, spiritual sessions, and instructional workshops. (See the Schedule page of our website for details.)

These sessions will be recorded and available on our Facebook group for registrants through the end of November. So if 11/4-5 isn’t convenient for you, you can enjoy the recordings at any time during the month.
