Benefit from a seasoned training process that has matured for nearly 30 years.
The Journey was created in the United States nearly thirty years ago and has now grown to be an international training organization. The goal of Journey Companions Rwanda is to refresh and inspire leaders who:
- Listen to God
- Follow Jesus rhythms of life
- Lead from the overflow
Journey Companions Rwanda retreats are held at Serenity Gardens and provide time in prayer, solitude, scripture and reflection, away from the non-stop demands of a busy life.
Whether you are a pastor, a leader in business, a family member wanting to disciple your family well, or a person who simply wants to follow Jesus better, Journey Companions Rwanda is open to anyone wanting a deeper, richer and more joyous lifestyle of disciple-making.
