You will experience God's love for you, personally
God's love is poured out in so many ways all throughout the weekend. You will experience God's love for you, personally, and learn how you fit in to God's larger purposes and plan as well as how you can participate in God's mission here on earth.
I could focus on a deeper relationship....
Because I was able to leave my daily life with all its stresses, I could focus on a deeper relationship with Jesus through the loving embrace of a community of believers.
I didn't realize I was part of God's plan
"I have been a Christian since I was eleven. But until I attended a Pilgrimage weekend, I didn't realize I was part of God's plan - me personally."

Gave me an opportunity to listen to God
"Attending a Pilgrimage weekend gave me an opportunity to listen to God; an opportunity to have an open heart and mind. It was inspiring to have God reveal to me where He had been guiding me and where He planned for us (He and I) to go in the future. If you are going to live a purpose driven life, you better know what the purpose is."

I stopped being a Sunday only Christian.
There was always a question about "WHY?" Pilgrimage answered that question
"I have always believed in God, but there was always a question about "WHY?" Pilgrimage answered that question and having gone through a Pilgrimage weekend, I have renewed my faith experience and a new awareness in God and his power. If you are struggling with your faith or need to reconnect with God, Pilgrimage is the place. If you feel a need to increase your faith, Pilgrimage is the place. You will be so enriched by the experience, you will want to Pass It On to others and be one of God's Servants."

A changing point in my life...
It was a changing point in my life, and I felt a "peace" that I hadn't felt in 20 years.
I left renewed....
Pilgrimge rescued me from a spiral of depression brought on by my personal problems; I left renewed with the conviction that God still has great plans for me.
