HOW LONG HAVE THE CHOLEs BEEN MENTORING?

Barry and Alicia began to intentionally mentor others in 1985: Barry was a campus ministry intern at Missouri State University and Alicia was a student at the University of Texas—Austin.

Mentored by empowering leaders, they both were captivated by Jesus’ example of purposeful proximity. When they married in 1990, mentoring and God’s global mission formed the core of their ministry together.

Today, the Choles continue living out this calling by focusing upon leaders in the marketplace and the church. They each bring into every mentoring relationship 30 years of experience in spiritual direction along with personal life-experiences as leaders in local, national, and international contexts.

WHAT IS THE TAKE-HOME OF THE REST & RENEWAL RETREATS?
  • An uncluttered head and heart.
  • A re-centered First Love.
  • Enough spiritual formation and teaching notes and ideas to digest for many, many weeks.
  • A shared experience with others of like-heart.
  • At least two hours of mentoring/spiritual direction with Barry or Alicia.
WHAT IS THE TAKE-HOME OF THE GUIDED PRAYER RETREATS?
  • Rest for your mind and body that only silence and stillness can offer.
  • An awakened First Love.
  • Practical instruction on the discipline of prayer retreating.
  • A shared experience with others of like-heart.
  • The option of a one-on-one with Barry or Alicia.
WHAT IF I WANT TO EXPERIENCE A RETREAT BUT CAN'T MATCH MY SCHEDULE WITH LII'S DATES?

One option is to gather four other friends, select a few dates that work for all of you, and email our team to see if Barry or Alicia are available to do a custom retreat for your group. If so, you can even request specific teaching topics or themes!

Also, you can subscribe to receive Lii updates to receive the earliest possible opportunity to sign up for the next Lii.

WE'D LIKE TO BRING MORE THAN FIVE FOR A REST & RENEWAL RETREAT. IS THAT POSSIBLE?

Rest & Renewal is intentionally small to permit substantial one-on-one time with Barry or Alicia and interaction with each other. However, another option exists. You are welcome to reserve Rest Inn Rivendell for up to 20 guests and invite Barry or Alicia in to share on a specific topic or theme. They obviously won’t be able to offer 20 hours of one-on-ones, but they both love speaking with small groups and doing open Q&As.

WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY FOR RETREATS?

Full-refunds are given for cancellations 60 days out. Less than 60 days out, the 50% deposit will be retained unless we can fill your spot, in which case the entire amount will be refunded.

IS REST INN RIVENDELL OPEN FOR CHURCH STAFF? RETREATS? BOARD MEETINGS?

Yes, yes, and yes! So far the only request we’ve received that wasn’t a great match was for a tween boys’ baseball team….Rivendell is ideal for church staff, family reunions, retreats…with space to rest, land to roam, and a view to inspire even the weariest of minds. www.restinnrivendell.com
