A sense of belonging...
It gave me a sense of belonging to the Lord and to His family.

To me about the weekend was about community. I worked and met some incredible people with incredible stories of God's grace and love.

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."

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.
It's a powerful time because God always shows up
Being part of team on a pilgrimage is like being part of a huge family where we get together twice a year to serve Jesus together. The family keeps growing and I am blessed by the new lives that I have the privilege of interacting with at the beautiful setting of Camp Henry. It's a powerful time because God always shows up. His Spirit is felt by me as I serve my fellow team members and pilgrims. When I miss a pilgrimage, it almost feels like I missed a family reunion.
I stopped being a Sunday only Christian.
a time of reflection and renewal
"Pilgrimage weekend was a time for reflection and renewal of my spiritual life. It was a time to focus in my life and see how God has been by my side through the years. His love and grace were so evident."
The most significant worship experience of our lives
"My wife, Carolyn, and I attended the first Michigan Pilgramiage. It was, without question, the most significant worship experience of our lives. It reminded us of, and reinforced, our faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior in a very meaningful manner."
