Creative Themes for Your Retreats!

Cyndy Warnier has created and led a variety of retreats for women, men, mixed groups, and care-givers. She can use one of her topics below for your retreat, or develop one for you with a theme you’d like. As a chaplain and musician and drama writer, her retreats have music, sketches, and inspirational exploration of topics that are relevant to us today. She also has several specialty retreats for worship leaders/choirs/praise bands/musicians. Cyndy is now retired from her position as Program Director at Spirit but is still available to lead retreats.
