A new family...
It gave me many new brothers and sisters in Christ.
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.
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."

It prepared me for a rougher road...
It prepared me for a rougher road ahead and taught me to give some of my load to God and others who I can trust.
I left there with a stronger sense of who I am in Christ Jesus...
At Pilgrimage I experienced an outpouring of the love and grace of God in a profound way. I left there with a stronger sense of who I am in Christ Jesus.
A tangible sense of community, of belonging
"One life-changing thing I brought home from my Pilgrimage was a tangible sense of community, of belonging. For just as I love because God first loved me, and forgive because He has forgiven me – 'community' was given to me and now I have experienced what that means, I am able to extend it to others."

And we had fun...
It's like a retreat, but it is not a retreat. It was a short course in Chrisitanity. And we had fun!
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.
