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."

My experiences at MPP will stay with me the rest of my life

My experiences at MPP will stay with me the rest of my life. The Holy Spirit soared through my body and heart to make me His servant here on earth before I go home to be with Him in heaven. From the moment I arrived until I left, I was treated with love and an understanding that is indescribable. I would encourage everyone to attend an MMP to grow in your faith and to know that you are special in God's eyes. God is good!

A sacred moment where you meet God

"There are sacred moments in our lives when we meet God at the mountain top.  Pilgrimage is one such moment, and it prepares us for our work in the valley below."

A life changing experience

MPP is a life changing experience...through the power of God the MPP team lead me back to the hand of Jesus Christ who walks with me daily and guides my path.

I don't want the feeling to end

"We were told during our weekend to remember that upon reentering our normal lives the world hadn't changed but we had.  Oh, how true!  Monday morning I woke up and the sky looked bluer, the grass greener, and the trees in fuller bloom.  I was so aware of how awesome God's creation is.

Renewal is a good word to try to describe the weekend for me.  I just didn't realize how empty my glass had become and, after having time to reflect, I felt like I am full again.  I would love for everyone to experience a Pilgrimage and be able to come back feeling the way I felt.  I don't want the feeling to end.  I know I am a better wife, mother, friend, etc. because of my Pilgrimage weekend.   It is so amazing to be immersed in God's presence for those 72 hours and to look around and see His love and understanding in others.
Thank you to all of those who served this weekend.  What a gift you shared with me and one that I can't wait to share with others."

God loves you and so do I,

Pilgrimage strengthened me and deepened my faith

"I was invited to Pilgrimage several times, but always had an excuse not to go---too inconvenient, had to take time off of work, find someone to watch my son, and several other reasons. I had an overwhelming urge that this was the one I needed to go to. The "urge'" kept getting stronger so I put all my excuses aside and went in April 2011. Pilgrimage is led by lay people and a few pastors. This is what makes pilgrimage powerful. Ordinary Christians, from numerous churches, work hard together to bring three extraordinary days to others, explaining their faith and demonstrating Christ's impact in their lives. Guests set aside the earthly world for 72 hours and can focus on their spiritual lives totally surrounded by a Christian community. Christians are required to be out in the world, but occasionally need to renew and recharge themselves. Pilgrimage strengthened me and deepened my faith. It was among the three most important days in my Christian walk. Since I have made my weekend I have served on team and now on the Leadership Council."

It's 3 days that I would recommend to everyone who wants to...

From the moment I arrived I could say that it was not only very organized, but people were very friendly.  Little did I know then that those friendly faces would turn out to be good friends.  The spiritual element was there from the beginning and grew to fill each of us throughout the weekend.  It's 3 days that I would recommend to everyone who wants to grow in faith, make new friends and eat good food.
