Wilderness Retreat. Nature Preserve. Coffee Farm.

The Sacred Forest enhances SuNica’s mission in boundless ways. Its pristine rainforest setting lets our students experience the wonder of God’s creation and learn about agriculture and nature while mirroring Jesus’s practice of withdrawing to the mountains for prayer and time with his Disciples. Every bag of Sacred Forest Coffee helps make these retreats possible!

“And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray.”   Matthew 14:23

What is a Discipleship Retreat?

The goal of our discipleship retreats is to provide our kids, leaders and families with a space to reflect, pray, and grow closer to God and each other.  In the forest, visitors witness the beauty of their own country while experiencing a tranquility vastly different from their communities.  It’s a setting that can be both restful and adventurous.  The Lord is always with you, but a trip up the mountain can create the space for an experience of His presence.

“I never imagined a place so beautiful. You can truly focus there and feel God’s presence, God’s peace.”
