Char-Rose Retreat Center

Jesus teaches us in the Gospel of Mark Chapter 6:31 to “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

Char-Rose is a beautiful 200 acre farm that was donated to our ministry by the McCracken family of Markleysburg, Pa. The purpose for this awesome gift was to give our ministry a place where we could reach out to people bringing them closer to the Lord. Char-Rose is a place where people can leave their everyday lives and take some very special time to be with God.


Join us for a day or stay for a few days. You can stay in one of our campers or use an open Adirondack shelter to get you out of the elements. If you prefer, bring your own tent. Enjoy fishing in our pond, or use the many hiking trails throughout the grounds for prayer or just plain relaxation. We also have a unique 5K hiking, running and biking trail that will keep you in shape.


We have several annual events at the farm like our “Fire On The Mountain” weekend retreat that is held every August and our annual summer festival held in July that brings people together to just enjoy God’s great outdoors.

We are very excited about the adventure camp we are building for the young at heart and the special services being planned like revivals, crusades, renewal and healing services.

It is our prayer and intentions to honor God by the way we use each acre of this very special gift. Check out our photo gallery and our blog to get more info on this farm. Come on out and join us.
