New Season Retreat Suite.

New Season Retreat is the home of spiritual retreats for individuals and married couples who work full-time in Christian ministry.

Enjoy the suburban/country environment where you can relax, plan, write, and seek without interruption...close to town and yet so far away.

Who We Are

Chris and Anne administer this restful space.  In her work as a church secretary, Anne experienced first-hand the kinds of stresses that pastors and their staff can experience.  Many years of seeking the Lord's will, along with God's gracious provision, brought us to this ministry.  We're honored to bless you in this way.

Where We Are

New Season Retreat is located about 50 miles west of Washington, DC.  The property backs to acres of public woodlands, providing a buffer from the nearby town and a feeling of peace nestled in a natural setting, but with all the conveniences of semi-rural life.

What We Offer

Our two-room addition with separate entrance sleeps two adults, with its own bathroom and small kitchen area.  French doors and skylights let in light while nearby trees provide shade.

The suite is available as a ministry at no charge.  Donations are not expected, but any received go toward consumables and expenses.

The space is available Monday through Thursday nights, for a one- to four-night stay.  Coffee, tea, and water are provided.  There are a refrigerator, toaster oven, and microwave, but also many restaurants within a 10-minute drive.  Bed linens and towels are provided and there's no need to clean up at the end of your stay.

How to Contact Us

Email us at info @ (without the spaces around the "@" sign).  In your email, verify your role in full-time ministry with your name, position, church or ministry affiliation, and a link to a website if there is one.  We'll email you more details and an application form.

"He is like a tree planted on a riverbank,
   bearing fruit each season.
His leaves never wither,
   and he prospers in everything he does."

--Psalm 1:3


Job 37:10, 6, 7

It's God's breath that forms frost and freezes lakes.

He directs the snow to fall on the earth and tells the rain to pour down.

Then everyone stops working so they can watch his power.


Psalm 104:4, 27, 28

You make the winds your messengers, flames of fire your servants.

They all depend on you to give them food as they need it.

When you supply it, they gather it.  You open your hand to feed them, and they are richly satisfied.


Job 37:21-23

No one can stare at the sun after a breeze has blown the clouds from the sky.

An awesome beauty streams from God, a golden splendor from the north.


Isaiah 40:8

The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of the Lord stands forever.
