Wilderness Prayer Center

The Wilderness Prayer Center, grounded in the Christian faith, offers opportunities for spiritual growth for both individuals and groups within a quiet, removed setting that overlooks Rice Lake.  It is sponsored by Youth For Christ and welcomes both youth and adults to come and encounter Christ as you listen and respond to God's Spirit.

The Wilderness Prayer Center is available for prayer retreats and other prayer gatherings.  The Prayer Center offers:

  • A sacred place to be alone with God 

  • A place for individual and group retreats

  • Quiet and remote space where you can get closer to Christ

  • Intercessory prayer every Tuesday at 7:00 pm

  • Worship In The Wilderness on the last Friday of each month at 7:00 pm. All are invited for a time of worship, prayer, fellowship and         encountering God's presence.
