Experience grace in your community
The Grace Changes Everything (GCE) retreats are a simple way to explore grace with your community. Hosted by people like you, these retreats consist of video stories, facilitator-guided discussions, reading for reflection and thought-provoking questions, spread over just one evening and the next morning. If you've wanted to step further into grace with those around you, hosting this retreat is a great starting point.
The GCE retreat is hosted by someone like you, and attended by whoever they invite (we suggest 8-12 participants). A Trueface facilitator is then assigned to the retreat to help facilitate the discussion and format. The facilitator is never there to teach, only to guide discussion with thoughtful questions
The retreats consist of video stories, group discussions, short readings and scripture. From there, it's up to your group; the Trueface facilitator is there to ask questions that allow you to explore what God's grace really means.
Each retreat is different, because it is a one-time event hosted by a friend. These retreats are hosted at retreat centers, hotels, homes, bed and breakfasts, or wherever your host decides. Ask your host for more details.
Hosting a retreat is simple. You will need a GCE Retreat Box ($250 for a maximum of 12 participants, an additional $15 per participant over 12), somewhere to host, and people you'd like to experience grace with. You will provide the food for your guests and Trueface will pair you with one of our trained volunteer facilitators.
